Description

Imagine having your photographs reviewed by a Magnum photographer. Imagine those photographs then being showcased on IdeasTap for a month and viewed by thousands of visitors, including senior members of Magnum staff. And then imagine receiving personal feedback and career advice from your Magnum judge.

Well, that’s 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’s website and followed up by some fantastic feedback and advice for the development of your work from the judge. 

The Magnum judge for this brief is Richard Kalvar.

All you need to do is upload a strong, concise edit of 10 to 20 images on a theme to your IdeasTap portfolio, along with 100 words explaining your project. You will be judged on their ability to convey a story through images, specifically on innovation, creativity, technical ability and conception.

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

THE OTHER SIDE OF TOWN

You are free to interpret this theme as you see fit. You could take it literally, or use it as a starting point and let your imagination do the rest. 

This brief closes on Friday 7 June at 5pm and is open to IdeasTap members aged 16 to 30. If you have any technical queries, please visit the Help Centre. Late entries will not be accepted under any circumstances, including technical issues – so make sure you don’t leave your application to the last minute.
