PRESS RELEASE: Photokore opens the ‘My Country’ Photo Contest to all photographers
Asia-based stock photo company, Photokore, announces the launch of their "My Country" Photo Contest. Running until mid-August, photographers around the world are encouraged to submit photos that highlight the essence of a country of their choosing.
PRLog (Press Release) -- Jul 01, 2011 -- Asia-based microstock photo company, Photokore, launched a country-specific photo competition today, inviting image submissions that profile each contestant’s country of choice.
The contest, ‘My Country’, is open to all photographers around the world, and is accepting single or multiple image submissions that illustrate the photographer’s country of choice. Subject matter is left to the contestant’s imagination -- people, landscapes, objects, etc. The objective is to submit a photo that evokes the spirit of the country the photographer has chosen to highlight.
“It’s often said that photos tell a story, that a picture is worth a thousand words. We believe that to be true, and want to give photographers a venue to show the story they can tell through their photography,” Photokore’s President & CEO Sean Mooney said at the contest launch.
The winning photos will be selected by a team of judges comprised of Photokore’s top image inspectors, based on their experience of judging hundreds of photos on a daily basis. The deadline for entries is 15 August.
First, second, and third place winners will receive prizes, and the first place winner will also become Photokore’s next Featured Artist. There is also a separate category for a Grand Prize winner! The top image selections will also be exhibited on www.photokore.com
Contest details, and submission guildelines are available at www.photokore.com/photocontest
