If you’re aged be­tween 13 and 19 right now, you’re el­i­gi­ble to en­ter our pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion es­pe­cially for younger pho­tog­ra­phers. For all the de­tails about how to en­ter turn to page 72 or go to www.avhub.com.au/teen­pho­tog­ra­pher

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 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 2018 Aus­tralian Teenage Pho­tog­ra­pher Of The Year tro­phy and an Olym­pus OM-D E-M5 Mark II with the M.Zuiko Dig­i­tal 12-40mm f2.8 PRO zoom lens, val­ued at $1999.

We’ll also be show­cas­ing your im­ages on Camera magazine’s Web­site at www.avhub.com.au Your sub­mis­sions will be eval­u­ated by Camera ed­i­tor Paul Bur­rows, pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher Bruce Usher, and a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Olym­pus Aus­tralia.

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 www.avhub.com.au/ teen­pho­tog­ra­pher. 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 fi­nal 2018 is­sue of Camera magazine, so the clos­ing date for the com­pe­ti­tion is 14 Septem­ber 2018. You may en­ter all or any round, but you must sub­mit a dif­fer­ent port­fo­lio of six im­ages each time.
