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 Sophie Wright, Cultural & Print Room Director at Magnum Photos.

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?

TERRITORY

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.

 

Terms and conditions:

Magnum will be specifically looking at entries for a high level of innovation, creativity, technical capability and conception. They will also bear age in mind when judging entries, considering how advanced the work is for an applicant’s level of experience.

Magnum will also consider how you interpret and respond imaginatively to the theme.

Applicants should be able to clearly articulate and contextualize their projects, and submit a strong and concise edit for consideration.

All submissions should have been shot in the last six months.

This brief closes on Wednesday 31 July 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.

    • Hi Denise, IdeasTap was set up specifically as a youth charity, which is why some of the opportunities we run have age limits (and likewise, some of the organisations we work with have required charitable remits to fulfil too). Please see this article for more information: http://www.ideastap.com/ideasmag/all-articles/Who-we-support-and-why

      We do however offer many other resources for artists of all ages, and this year our IdeasTap Photographic Award with Magnum Photos was open to all. Take a look at www.ideastap.com/briefs to see our current opportunities and www.ideastap.com/spa to see upcoming free workshops and events. You may, for example, be interested in this: http://bit.ly/XSn2IJ

      We hope that explains things. Thank you!
