My degree was in Cinema, Photography and Television at Leeds University and I specialised in doing photography, believe it or not! That means that according to my degree I’m qualified at taking photos and videoing stuff, not that it shows in many things these days! Anyway, here’s an awesome photography related comp that I’m sure many of you will be keen to get involved with.
I wish this photo was mine, but it’s not. It’s courtesy of Bing Originals. Anyway, here’s what the dealio is, Microsoft owned search engine, Bing.com is known for his gorgeous photo landscape interface and have teamed up with Dazed Magazine to find their next image from a pool of aged 16-30 photography talent. There are two lots of prizes, both include an awesome Nikon D5200 DSLR camera and the other also features your image headlining on the Bing.com homepage.
The next two photos are 100% mine and the first taken on the Microsoft Lumia 920 camera phone, pretty snazzy camera on that phone!
You don’t have to have a fancy camera to enter, for one prize you can enter ANYTHING, as long as it shows a unique perspective on the world. If you want to qualify for the homepage prize, your image will need to be at least 2000px wide at the shortest edge and not feature any logos or recognisable faces.
To find out more and enter head to the Bing Originals website and GOOD LUCK! You can tag your photos on Instagram with #bingoriginals to showcase your work.
