Alamy and ASPP announce new student photography competition 'My Town, My Way'

The winning image will be published in the ASPP magazine and featured on Alamy’s homepage. The student will receive a portfolio review and mentoring from industry experts. Open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students.

All entrants must be students and all entries will be submitted through Alamy. Every entry will be part of Alamy’s 100% royalty student project, where students will earn 100% of any licensing revenue generated from their images, without Alamy taking any commission.

The theme, “My Town, My Way,” was chosen to spark the imagination of students who either stayed in town for the summer or who moved to new cities to continue their education.

Alan Capel, head of content at Alamy, shared his enthusiasm about the project. “We’re anticipating a real range of imagery. We want to know how students feel about their town. We want to see their insights and emotions,” he said. “Even if we have 20 students submitting images of the same place, they should all be different.”

Michael Masterson, ASPP’s National President, added, “We are delighted to partner with Alamy on this competition because we are both committed to supporting students and emerging talent. The ASPP offers a free one year membership to graduates in photography and related fields to give them access to the networking and educational opportunities we offer. This competition is another way to reach that audience.”

Closing date for the competition is Saturday, September 14, 2013. Entries will be judged by a panel of industry experts including photographers, art directors and photography professors.

The project is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students. Registration and entry information can be found here.
