The World We Live In

The World We Live In

With this major annual photo contest offering more than $50,000 in prizes, Photo Life and Photo Solution aim to pay tribute to the beauty of our world and contribute to the promotion of photography. Photos of a young child playing with the neighbour’s dog, birds flying low over the lake at dawn, the impressive architecture of the CN Tower, a stranger strolling down the street, a flower, an insect, a table set for dinner…photographic opportunities are everywhere. Pro and amateur photographers are invited to share their photographic talent and show their vision of the world we live in.

Photo Life and Photo Solution invite Canadian and U.S. photographers to submit their best work to The World We Live In V with more than $50 000 offered in prizes, including a grand-prize expedition cruise!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

Open to pros, amateurs and everyone in between, participants may submit their images through November 30 using a simple online interface. To enter The World We Live In, just click on the Enter here orange button above, check out the rules and regulations and proceed to your registration. You could win great prizes — including an expedition cruise to the heart of the Arctic — and get published in Canada’s #1 photography magazine! Complete details about the grand-prize expedition are available here.

2015 INVITED JUDGE

The judging process is a collaborative effort including staff members of Photo Life and Photo Solution, as well as invited judges that come from the photography industry. For the 2015 edition, we will have the pleasure of having Evgeny Tchebotarev, professional photographer and cofounder of 500px, join us as invited judge.

Fuelled by his passion for photography and helping photographers succeed, Evgeny Tchebotarev founded 500px in 2009. The 500px website is currently a source of inspiration to millions of viewers around the world and boasts some of the world’s best photographers as members.

Tchebotarev believes in the global power of photography: “A great photo is the one that can tell a story at a glance. This is something no other medium will ever do — neither text, video nor music. Photography is instantaneous and its power comes with it being global. There’s no need to translate as every human being can intuitively understand it,” he says.
An accomplished professional photographer whose work has been exhibited around the world, Tchebotarev has been on the jury for several prominent international photography competitions, including the 2013 Red Bull Illume; The Best of Russia Photography Contest 2013; 2013 Picture Dignity Photo Contest; 2014 Life Framer Photography Competition; and 2014 Mobile Photography Awards.
