Camera - - WHAT’S NEW -


Photo Con­test 2018-2019 is open for en­tries from now un­til 3:00pm on 31 Jan­uary (Aus­tralian East­ern Stan­dard Time). Since the first con­test was held in 1969, more than 410,000 pho­tog­ra­phers from around the world have sub­mit­ted over 1,620,000 im­ages. The 36th (2016-2017) con­test at­tracted 76,356 works from 21,511 pho­tog­ra­phers in 170 coun­tries and re­gions. This marked a new record for the com­pe­ti­tion in terms of the num­ber of coun­tries from which sub­mis­sions were made.

For the 2018-2019 con­test, art di­rec­tor Neville Brody – who is CEO of Brody As­so­ciates – has been ap­pointed lead judge, hav­ing also held this po­si­tion in the pre­vi­ous com­pe­ti­tion. Brody’s work spans over more than three decades, and ranges from al­bum sleeves to cor­po­rate brand­ing for global busi­nesses, and is in­flu­en­tial among a wide va­ri­ety of artists, in­clud­ing pho­tog­ra­phers who will lead the next gen­er­a­tion.

The Nikon Photo Con­test 2018-2019 again has three cat­e­gories – Open, Next Gen­er­a­tion and Short Film. The theme for the Open cat­e­gory is ‘Change’ and Nikon is call­ing for en­tries that ex­press the changes you want to share with the world. You can sub­mit a sin­gle im­age or a photo story com­pris­ing of two to five im­ages.

The theme for the Next Gen­er­a­tion cat­e­gory – which is open to pho­tog­ra­phers aged 25 and younger – is ‘Iden­tity’, and Nikon says it is look­ing for Nikon looks for “…en­tries unique to younger gen­er­a­tions that ex­plore who they are. Again, en­trants can sub­mit a sin­gle im­age or a photo story com­pris­ing of two to five im­ages.

The theme for the Short Film cat­e­gory is ‘Hope’ with en­tries ex­plor­ing the idea of shin­ing “a hope­ful light on the path to the fu­ture”.

The Con­test is open to all pro­fes­sional and am­a­teurs, re­gard­less of age, gen­der, or na­tion­al­ity. En­try is free and im­ages do not need to have been taken us­ing Nikon cam­eras.
