Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

Unstaged Photo Contest

unstaged_twitter_badge_alt.jpg (29 KB) Unstaged is a photographic event which exposes the extraordinary aspects of everyday life.

The first of three competitions invite you to take five inspiring photographs from Scotland, that together say something bold, fresh and different.

To take part, you need a free blipfoto.com photo journal. Your competition entries will consist of five photographs with accompanying text, taken and uploaded to your journal between each competition’s published start and end date.

At the close of each competition, the Blipfoto community – including participants in the competition – will be given a week to nominate the finalists. The top ten nominations in each category (junior and adult) then go before a judging panel for a final decision. The judging panel will include Joe Tree (Blipfoto), Stuart Cosgrove (Channel 4), Vicky Featherstone (National Theatre of Scotland) and others.

Nominations and final judging will be based on the entrant’s collection as a whole; where the underlying concept is as important as the technical execution, where image aesthetics are balanced by narrative text. Unstaged is truly open to all – a winning entry is just as likely to come from a camera phone as an expensive digital camera.

Future competitions beginning in 2010 will be open internationally.
