shots Magazine: Deadline 31 July 2010

shots is proud to announce the fifth annual competition for photography students worldwide. The theme of this years competition is FIRST IMPRESSION.

We are looking for a short narrative sequence of original work (3-10 images) that responds to, and reflects this theme in an original and dynamic way.

This is a unique opportunity for current and graduating photography students. Each year, shots publishes a substantial Directory a major resource for international brands and the creative industries that serve them. It is bought, and used all year by creative directors and art buyers worldwide.

Sixty finalists will be chosen from the competition entry; and from those finalists, ten outstanding submissions, including three runners-up and an overall winner, will be announced in November 2010. All 60 finalists will be given space in the Directory to present their work along with contact details. One image from the winning entry will feature on the cover. The overall winner will also receive a cash prize of 500. Selected runners-up will be given additional full-page exposure throughout the book. All finalists work will feature in an online exhibition when the shots 2011 Directory is published in December 2010.

The competition is open to all current photography students. Entry is free. The closing date for entries is Saturday 31 July 2010. The competition will be judged by a professional team from the advertising and photography community, and shots.

Visit for further details.

All images will be submitted digitally by uploading to the shots site (details to follow). Images may be colour or b/w. The 60 shortlisted entrants will be asked after the submission deadline to submit high-res versions, on which final judging will be based. The judges will be looking for technical excellence as well as an imaginative and original interpretation of the chosen theme. Only unpublished work will be considered. All use is subject to our Terms & Conditions & Privacy & Cookie Policy.
