EyeTime 2014 Photo Competition
EyeTime 2014 invites students and young professionals or enthusiasts to submit a collection of their photography comprised of up to three digital images. By submitting your work, we invite you to share your voice with the collective intelligence of a community of visual thinkers. The competition is free to all entrants.
The proliferation of device culture, social networking, and cloud technology are changing the way we create, and connect on a daily basis. For photography, this means that technology is not only transforming the process of production, but also the processes through which we share, critique, and organize ourselves around the work we do. The competition is first, and foremost an experiment in distributed intelligence. By leveraging the “wisdom of crowds” every entrant can see and understand how his or her work is experienced by others. It has been predicted that in 2020, there will be 50 billion mobile internet connections worldwide, the equivalent of seven devices per person. Thus, this competition is not simply about the existence of technology, but rather why and how we harness it as artists.
As the paradigm shift from analog to digital is paired with the emergence of platforms for the digital consumption of images, photography inherently reassess its methods, media and subjects, in order to establish a dialogue with an audience whose visual abilities are increasingly expanded by technology. Thus, this competition challenges you to confront the world with your photography. By sending it out into the field you will test yourself and your work. You are the artist, the curator and the critic. EyeTime 2014 poses the following questions: What are the aspirations by which we evaluate photography today? In an increasingly networked culture, what makes an image capable of cutting through the virtual noise, and starting a new conversation? How do evolving forms of media affect the way in which your message reaches its destination? What is your message?
Eyetime 2014 was assembled by photographers, professors and students as a means to publicly promote the research, exploration and investigation currently happening amongst today’s emerging talent. The competition is supported by the ICP (International Center of Photography), APA (American Photographic Artists), ADC (Art Directors Club), and is hosted by The Morpholio Project. The guest jury includes participants from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Resource magazine, Light Stalking, Shutter Sisters, Psychology for Photographers, and the ICP. We look forward to your participation.
In Memory of Jessica Lum
Jessica Lum was a young, spirited and extraordinarily talented journalist. As an award-winning photographer, reporter, editor and humanitarian, she dedicated her tragically short career to the needs of giving voice to others. Through her storytelling, Jessica would seek to redefine the “presence” of those telling a story and capturing the moment that is to be preserved. Her approach was best stated in her own words: “To truly understand a story we need a deeper level of interaction. If we desire to truly grasp the full significance of an image that we capture, we need to step out from behind that camera, gain a level of trust and converse with the human people to whom we wish to give voice.”
EyeTime 2012 was privileged to have Jessica as an esteemed Jury member and will be forever grateful for her contributions to emerging talents, as well as the profession of Photojournalism. This year, EyeTime will be honoring the mission, voice and work that Jessica shared with the world, a mission captured by her own words: “When I write and when I take pictures, I realize that it isn’t me trying to create something, it’s me trying to preserve the moment. But in preserving the moment, I’m not trying to battle against the inevitability of time passing. I’m simply trying to understand the moment.”
On behalf of the competition organizers, supporters and contributors, we commemorate Jessica Lum and her work, and offer our condolences to those who knew her.
