This brief is for photographers aged 16 to 22. If you're aged 23 to 30, visit the other Photographic Award brief.
For the third year running, we’ve teamed up with legendary photographic agency Magnum Photos to offer IdeasTap photographers the opportunity of a lifetime.
The IdeasTap Photographic Award has two overall winners (one from each age group), but also offers opportunities to 12 shortlisted snappers (six from each age group). All 12 shortlisted applicants will receive a mentoring session with a Magnum Photographer, £60 of Blurb book vouchers and £150 to have their pictures printed. Over six weeks, they will be encouraged to enhance and develop their projects. Their photographs will be framed and included in an exhibition in September.
At the exhibition, six finalists will be selected – three from each age group. The six finalists will each receive £1,500 to shoot their dream project, create a multimedia Magnum in Motion project and will receive a second mentoring session.
Finally, a winner will be picked from each age group. The overall winners of the Award will each receive £5,000 and sought-after internships at Magnum – the younger winner in London and the older winner in New York.
In addition, all applicants will receive a £20 Blurb voucher.
To enter the competition you must submit four photographs in response to ONE of the following themes:
- Human Behaviour
- My Backyard
We’re looking for creative and striking photographs that demonstrate photographic skill and understanding. The four photos in your portfolio must demonstrate your ability to tell a story with your images.
In the first round of judging, the images will be viewed in your IdeasTap portfolio's Presentation View on the site with a black background and no border (unless you choose to add one to your images before you upload them).

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.
