Amateur Photographer of the Year Competition

Google Photography Prize

googlelogo Google thinks great art deserves great exposure. So they are teaming up with Saatchi Gallery, London to offer student photographers around the globe a chance to showcase their work on the worldwide stage.

If you are a student aged 18 years or older then this contest is for you. Pick from one of 10 categories below and submit up to 8 of your best shots

Me : Show  images that best capture you — moments with friends and family, dancing with your dog, or your favorite pair of beat-up sneakers

Food: Shots that tantalize — from mouthwatering ingredients to dishes to die for.

Travel : Take us there with photos of your travels that give us a sense of place and culture.

Fashion : Here’s your chance to stroll the catwalk and reveal your fashion sense.

Action : Action takes many forms—whether it’s the raw speed of a racetrack or the gentle ripple of a waterbug on a still pond.

Street : Capture the urban vibe with big city boulevards, tree-lined avenues, or the street where you live.

Sport : Bring your A game. Show us the passion, excitement, and athleticism of sport.

Night : Keep us in the dark or light up the night. Any natural night view is eligible.

Sound/Silence : What does sound look like? Can you show us in a photo?

Point of View: Document what is happening now – from protests to celebrations.
