Photoh Competition Photography Australia

The next Photoh competition has a summer storytelling photography theme.

This theme should encourage you to get out in your local area with your camera, and capture some stories that are happening around you, no matter how big or small they may be!

"A tear contains an ocean. A photographer is aware of the tiny moments in a person's life that reveal greater truths."

We often take our local environment for granted, even though to 'outsiders' there are plenty of interesting moments and tales going on. Perhaps you notice locals that have interesting habits or hobbies? What about a festival or market?

You could even create a narrative of your own by photographing things going on at the beach/park/city streets. The best photo stories are those that set the scene, show character, a problem and a resolve, or show emotion.

Stories can also be told by finding a pattern in something, so you could choose something specific to keep an eye out for. Things may seem mundane on their own, but once put together as a set, you force the viewer to see them in a whole new way, and the subjects may take on a new meaning. Try putting together a photo set of: tourists, ice creams, seagulls, surfboards....

Photographer Matt Stuart spends hours on the streets of London, snapping slightly strange but impeccably timed photos, which, once put together as a series, capture an interesting insight to the ordinary people out and about. I strongly recommend checking out his website!

Entries opened on Friday 12th January, and will close on Thursday 25th January at 11.59pm AEST.

To enter, simply post your photo on the Photoh Facebook wall stating your city. Once on the Facebook page, you'll just need to scroll down to the 'Visitor Posts' tab on the right, and add your own. It's free!

First prize is a $100 JB Hifi voucher and second prize is a $50 JB Hifi voucher to spend as you wish!

All of the entries each fortnight are compiled into a Facebook photo album, with the finalists and winners appearing on the blog post on the Friday.

Please read our post on the competition rules and guidelines if you'd like more information before submitting a photo. If you have any other questions you can message us or email victoria@photoh.com.au.
