We’re announcing a photography prize for student photographers all over the world. Entrants can share their work on Google+ and the winners will see their work displayed in the Saatchi Gallery, London in 2012.
Students in higher education, 18 years or older on the submission date. It is not required you study photography.
You can have only one entry. You need to pick one category out of ten available.
You can submit up to eight shots.
31st January 2012.
In addition to having photos displayed to million of people online, there are some great prizes to be won. All details are in prizes section.
We decided to narrow the contest to students because we know there’s a very active student photography community on the web who will hopefully be keen to accept the challenge.
Scores will be made up of the following criteria, each of equal weight:
We chose categories that relate to student life, are interesting creatively and shared frequently on the web. We’re excited to see what creative efforts students come up with.
+1 will not be a part of the voting.
When you accept the T&Cs you also state that you are a student. All shortlisted participants (top 100) will undergo a review process - we will require student ID verification.
Any file format will be accepted. There is no equipment restriction; mobile photos are very welcome. Only restriction is on size: Resize your photos to 2048 pixels along the longest edge when uploading to G+. However please keep your originals as we will need these if you make the final shortlist!". Please follow our Google+ content policies when sharing your photos
We recently announced that in just the first 100 days, more than 3.4 billion photos were uploaded to Google+. Google+ plays host to a vibrant photography community and students will be sharing their entries on there for others to discover and share.
You can use hashtags to mark your entries; each category has a dedicated hashtag # (e.g. #travelgpp, all hashtags are here). Everyone can search for this # Google+ to see all submission. We will also be sending updates from the official Google Photography Prize Page to users that have added the Page to their circles.
Students retain ownership of all intellectual property rights in the entry. Google will not commercially exploit the Photographs.
