Alamy Posted February 11, 2014 Share Posted February 11, 2014 We’ve teamed up with our friends at Photocrowd to create their largest photo contest ever – and there are some great prizes on offer. You could win kit vouchers, a professional portfolio review, photo books and a bespoke contract with Alamy – where you get 100% commission for a year! Photocrowd’s exciting new contest site lets users vote on each other’s work, so anyone taking part can see in real-time how their images are doing in the contest, and which ones are winning. The expert judge – Alex Bortkiewicz, Director of Photography at Alamy – will be choosing her own separate selection of winning images at the end of the contest, and writing some expert reviews to explain her thinking. The theme of the contest is ‘Circles’. From birthday cakes to signposts, eyes to berries, we want to see how photographers have captured the ever-present circle with their cameras. Mike Betts co-founder of Photocrowd said: “This collaboration is really exciting, we love Alamy – the company and the concept – and it’s great to be working with them and their talented network of photographers. We’re aiming to reach 100,000 votes for a 1,000 image contest.” Alex Bortkiewicz, Director of Photography at Alamy and expert judge commented: “Circles inhabit our everyday lives, not least that we live this on this spherical thing called Earth! This theme offers great scope for expressing the circular form and how it reveals itself to us in its many guises.” You can enter the competition here. The Crowd and Expert winners each get: A £100 voucher for photographic equipment of their choice. Incredible exposure for the winning images through Alamy’s social media channels. The winning images featured in Photocrowd’s month-long anniversary exhibition in September 2014, as part of the international Oxford Photography Festival. The offer of a bespoke contract to have their images represented by Alamy. They’ll receive an amazing 100% of all their sales during the first year. The Expert winner also receives a professional portfolio review from Alex Bortkiewicz, Alamy’s Director of Photography, either remotely, or in person as part of a visit to Alamy’s headquarters in the UK. The Crowd and Expert runners-up each receive a copy of “Wood: Andy Goldsworthy” by Andy Goldsworthy and Terry Friedman. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
