Respected Terry O’Neill Award opens up doors to mobile photographers – CALL FOR ENTRIES


Says Terry O’Neill:

When I set up the Award nine years ago I saw a prize that would engage with young aspiring photographers from every corner of the globe. The Award’s partnership with The Guardian and its impressive international audience takes us a step closer to realizing this vision.

The Terry O’Neill Award in partnership with the UK Guardian newspaper has a call for submissions and the deadline of 30 November is coming up soon. The award is one of the major prizes in the big-camera photography world and has been for over the last ten years. Last year they launched a mobile category for the first time. It has some cracking prizes, including £500, a place in a London gallery exhibition for 2 weeks and publication in The Guardian. The judges are also serious photography and media people including Terry O’Neill himself and Lord Puttnam, the film director.

We think it’s great that a “serious” photography competition is taking mobile photography seriously. The deadline is November 30 and people have to submit a series of images. Just to clarify, mobile photography entrants should choose “Mobile” under “Format” and then any of the other categories (there is only one prize for Mobile irrespective of category).

Deadline: 30 November. For more details, please visit oneillaward.com
