We launched Viewbook PhotoStory 2009, an exciting new global photography contest. All documentary and conceptual photographers around the world are encouranged to submit photographic narratives in the form of self created online galleries, that are judged by the public and an international panel of industry professionals. The first prize winners receive international publications & lifelong subscriptions with a value exceeding $12.000).
The competition is all about the art of shooting a strong series, making a critical selection, determining the right order, writing a description and an appealing title. And most of all it’s about the impact that a photo story has on the audience. Viewbook PhotoStory is open for pro’s and emerging talents alike at no cost.
We encourage you to submit your work as soon as possible to get the most out of the public voting and get your photo story seen by as many people as possible. Submissions close at 1 October 2009. Check out the great prizes that we and our friends at GUP magazine, Blurb and Workbook have for grabs at www.viewbookphotostory.com
