Australian Teenage Pho­tog­ra­pher of the Year

Af­ter the suc­cess of the 2015-16 com­pe­ti­tion, Cam­era mag­a­zine is again search­ing for Aus­tralia’s most tal­ented teenage pho­tog­ra­phers. If you’re cur­rently aged be­tween 13 and 19, you’re el­i­gi­ble to en­ter the new 2017-18 com­pe­ti­tion and show off your cam­era

Camera - - ON TRIAL -

We had a great re­sponse to our in­au­gu­ral Australian Teenage Pho­tog­ra­pher Of The Year com­pe­ti­tion so we’re do­ing it all again. This is a great op­por­tu­nity for young pho­tog­ra­phers to show off their tal­ents be­hind the cam­era and pos­si­bly get into print. It’s not hard to put your im­ages online… get­ting into a mag­a­zine is more of a chal­lenge, but a pub­lished spread of im­ages could be the toe-in-the-door to a pos­si­ble ca­reer in pho­tog­ra­phy.

Over the next six is­sues of Cam­era, we’re giv­ing you the chance to have a port­fo­lio of your im­ages pub­lished over a dou­blepage spread in Aus­tralia’s lead­ing pho­tog­ra­phy mag­a­zine. At the end of the com­pe­ti­tion, we’ll judge all six suc­cess­ful port­fo­lios and crown some­body the Australian Teenage Pho­tog­ra­pher Of The Year for 2017-18. The over­all win­ner will be pre­sented with the Australian Teenage Pho­tog­ra­pher Of The Year tro­phy and a grand prize of cam­era equip­ment, de­tails of which will be re­vealed in the next is­sue.

We’ll also be show­cas­ing your im­ages on Cam­era mag­a­zine’s Web­site at Your sub­mis­sions will be eval­u­ated by Cam­era edi­tor Paul Bur­rows and pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher Bruce Usher. How To Get Started…

We want you to se­lect your SIX best im­ages. These can be the­matic – per­haps from a project

you’re work­ing on – or show­case a mix­ture of sub­jects and tech­niques. These im­ages should clearly demon­strate your cam­era skills… in other words, your eye for a great pic­ture and the abil­ity to vis­ually in­ter­pret a sub­ject. As with last year’s comp, we don’t mind a bit of post-cam­era edit­ing, but any­thing that’s ob­vi­ously over-ma­nip­u­lated won’t make the cut. This is all about us­ing the cam­era to tell a story.

Next, sub­mit JPEG ver­sions of your top six – the file size doesn’t need to be any big­ger than 1.0 to 2.0 MB – and you’ll find all the de­tails about how to do this at teen pho­tog­ra­pher

We’ll also need some in­for­ma­tion about you… how you got into pho­tog­ra­phy, what you like to pho­to­graph and what mo­ti­vates you to get out with your cam­era.

The last pub­li­ca­tion for sub­mis­sions will be the May/June 2018 is­sue of Cam­era mag­a­zine, so the clos­ing date for the com­pe­ti­tion is 15 April 2018. You may en­ter all or any round, but you must sub­mit a dif­fer­ent port­fo­lio of six im­ages each time.
