CHARACTER PHOTO VIDEO WRITING CONTEST

logo-stacked Maine Media Workshops presents the CHARACTER PHOTO VIDEO WRITING CONTEST. $13,000 IN PRIZES. CONTEST THEME – CHARACTER: PORTRAITS AND STORIES THAT REVEAL THE HUMAN CONDITION.For centuries, portraits and stories that reveal our humanity have been a source of fascination for artists working in all forms of media – especially photography, video and writing. These visual and written stories can depict the inner spirit revealed in a face, the human condition found in an interaction, a short cinematic profile that reveals the essence of someone’s life, or a story that brings a fictional or historical persona to life. No matter what the genre, success is often found in the interaction between the maker and the subject.

This contest is an opportunity for our international community of photographers, filmmakers and writers of all ages to present their representations of Character: Portraits and Stories That Reveal the Human Condition to a distinguished panel of judges.

All entries will be anonymously reviewed throughout the Contest. Images will be judged on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact, artistic merit and relevance to the theme of Character: Portraits and Stories That Reveal the Human Condition.

We are pleased to announce this distinguished panel of judges who will review all work and select the winners.

David Brommer: Photographer; Director B&H Photo Event Space

Emily Schiffer: Award-Winning Documentary Photographer

David Turner: Internationally Renowned Fashion Photographer
