London Photographic Association Competition For Portaiture

 Bronze Winner 2011 Domonic Harris - Self Portrait (fight/flight)

Call for entry closes on the 31 January 2012 - Entry details here.
This year we have added a new category which is 'Video' talking heads, or not as the case may be. We feel that the inclusion of video is in keeping with the convergance of technology and the requirements from commercial buyers. I hope the inclusion of video will kick start photographers who 'keep meaning to' experiment with video and directing.
Take a look at a couple of shorts made by Barney Edwards for inspiration - Liam and Graham along with thoughts on the 'hybrid' portrait from both technical and aesthetic aspects.
As always we encourage entrants to interpret the brief in the widest sense, portraying your subjects with emphasis on their identity as individuals.
