DEVELOPING WORLD – DIGITAL WORLD

 Competition, photography  Comments Off on DEVELOPING WORLD – DIGITAL WORLD

Here is a photography competition that although is not from a traditional ‘architecture’ source does have categories for Architecture and Landscape photography. The split images are a really interesting aspect and definitely give the competition a great artistic twist as well.  Take a look.

‘Building Trust’ is essentially a charity that offers design assistance to communities and individuals in need. From looking at the problems to finding sustainable aid solutions to ultimately providing buildings and infrastructure. These core actions have blossomed into advocating and educating on the principles of socially aware design, providing an accessable resource on humanitarian design projects and providing a structure for the crossover of information between design professionals.

Digital cameras have now surpassed developing film and the Digital World is taking over the developing World. We live in a World of wifi and mobile networks making the World smaller and more connected but still very different from country to country, street to street, face to face. We are asking for people to submit their take on a World of opposites and celebrate difference in a series of pictures. You could win yourself a brand new Digital SLR camera, or the equivalent in cash which ever you prefer.

Simple 2 step registration.

1. Email [email protected] the heading ‘photo’ and you will be sent a registration number and details of how to pay the one off £10 fee.

2. Once registered you can enter as many images as you like in any of the categories Until the 1st November when the competition closes. Best of luck!

Landscape

Natural to built up, open or closed, dry to wet. Landscapes are so diverse we hope to see some great examples here of how the World is made up of some truly spectacular views.

Architecture

Natural build or concrete and glass, large scale /small scale, natural/man-made, public or private. Have fun and show how space in which we live can be defined.

People

Crowds or portraits, you decide. Highlight differences and similarities in features or behaviors.

Money

Rich or poor, does money bring happiness, does wealth equate health? This category is open to interpretation, surprise us think creatively about the haves and have nots?

Time

Young or old, night to day we want a split screen image that speaks about not just a moment but a period of time.

Work

This category should actually be Work + Play, look around at how people spend their time either use the same people in differing situations or show how work means a different thing depending on where you live.

Open

We know that you may have an idea that does not fit with the categories above and who are we to stiffle your creativity. If this is the case for you then please enter you image under the Open category.
