The Brief

Photograph a subject you connect with through the process of creating a portrait capturing the personality and essence of the individual. We encourage innovation and originality focusing on image over process. In short, create a portrait photo of another individual (no self portraits or selfies).

You should focus on your subject and use primarily in-camera techniques to capture that image (e.g. lighting, composition, focus, expression, etc). While we encourage innovative thinking within these boundaries, we appreciate minimum amount of post-processing. ‘Keep it real!'

There are no special requirements for the setting. Feel free portrait people in their native environment, or in front or a studio background or any backdrop — remember, the focus is on the person.

The Prize(s)

A full scholarship to take up to two of summer courses at the NewSchool of Architecture and Design in San Diego, California, in July.NewSchool’s two-week Summer Courses give creative students the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals in the exciting design district of San Diego, California. Selected visits to museums, companies, production sites and design studios during the programmes expose students to the creative and cultural environment in San Diego.
