This is a call to all Italian aspiring photographers.
Leica 24×36 is a project aiming at discovering the new talents of Italian photography. It’s a new and interesting contest in three steps, using social media not only to engage people but also to decide who will be the winners, along with a selected jury.
Why 24×36? It’s obviously a tribute to this format that revolutionized photography, but it also indicate the concept of this project.
So here’s the time line:
1. Photographers upload three photos and people will vote through Facebook and Twitter. You have time until November 11.
2. The best 24 photographer will be chosen and will receive a Leica X1 that shall use in the next three months to create a personal project of 36 photos about their city. This second phase (24×36: One Camera, One Lens, One City) will last from November 21 2011 from February 2012.
All the works produced will be judged, and the best ones will have the chance to work with professional photographers and exhibit their photographs.
Now I confess. Could I not take part to this contest? Of course I had to give it a try. So if you like my photos hurry up and vote (or just vote for any photo that you like… there are amazing photographers out there!).
