Demotix Viewfinder: Feature stories

demotix Demotix, in partnership with Blurb and Moo, is launching VIEWFINDER – a monthly competition   with some great prizes.

VIEWFINDER, November: FEATURES

For November, we are putting the focus on features – stories of people and places around the world. It’s time to think about news differently and to find stories which haven’t yet been told.

Documentary Photojournalism has been dying for years – Demotix is the perfect place to revive it. Your community is now 10,000 strong, and nobody cares more about the stories the rest of the world is forgetting.

There are no restrictions on how often you can enter nor when the story was taken. Social, environmental, cultural, political… this is the perfect time to upload those stunning stories from your archive, and show them off to the world.

HOW TO ENTER

It’s incredibly simple. Upload your photos as normal, and choose the category Features. Every feature story will be considered for the award.

THE PRIZES

First Place: the opportunity to turn your photojournalism into a beautiful coffee-table book. Blurb, custom book publishers for the masses, will allow the winner to produce and customize their own bookstore-quality book or books, up to the value of £50.

Teresa Pereira, Senior Director at Blurb UK, said: “In an age of citizen journalism and new media, Demotix is streamlining content to help tell stories that are too often overlooked, but affect all of us. Flipping the news gathering process on its head, Demotix is giving everyone a voice and platform on which to be heard. Providing that open platform is at the heart of Blurb’s foundation and we hope that through books, these stories can continue to live on.”

Runners up will also be able to have their work printed – this time by Moo, the stunning card printers.

Second Place will receive 60 postcards of their best work, beautifully printed onto glossy stock.

Third place takes a set of Moo’s innovative mini-cards, ideal for creating a pocket portfolio with a range of your images to enhance your personal brand as a photojournalist.

All winners will be featured on the Demotix homepage and promoted intensively to photo editors and creatives worldwide.
