What you win



Brief closed
hours to go


Imagine having your photographs reviewed by Magnum. 

Imagine those photographs then being showcased on IdeasTap for a month and viewed by thousands of visitors, including senior members of Magnum staff...

And just imagine receiving personal feedback and career advice from your Magnum judge... 

Well, stop dreaming, because that is exactly what we’re offering.

Continuing Magnum’s commitment to emerging photographers, the Magnum Showcase is an opportunity for IdeasTap members to have a recent body of work reviewed by a Magnum photographer or senior staff member, showcased on IdeasTap and followed up by some fantastic feedback and advice for the development of your work from the Magnum judge. 

All you need to do is upload a strong, concise edit of 10 to 20 images on a theme, along with 100 words explaining your project. 

So, what is this month’s theme, we hear you ask? 

This month’s theme is MEMORY

Magnum photographers chronicle the crucial events of our time, of daily life and of world figures, producing in the process iconic images that have entered the collective memory. Your work can be inspired by daily life, objects, people, events… so long as it brings your individual or collective memory. 

This month’s judge, Naïma Kaddour, has worked as Magnum Photos’ Archive Department Director in Paris for 20 years. Having worked closely with the most renowned Magnum photographers, such as Henri-Cartier Bresson, Raymond Depardon and Guy Le Querrec, she represents Magnum Photos’ collective memory. 

Naïma is also a tutor for Reporting Change, a World Press Photo project for North African photojournalists.
