We are delighted to have been chosen to be on the UK judging panel for an amazing competition being run by Hotpoint.
Let me tell you about the prize first, because it’s pretty darned amazing: a portrait shoot with the amazing photographer Steve McCurry. His pictures are amazing! He’s a member of Magnum Photos, which is basically the most elite photography group in the world (founded by legendary photographers like Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson). He’s even had pictures on the cover of National Geographic! We want a shoot with him!
Not only do you get the shoot though, you also get flown out to New York with your family to do it! Here are a couple of his lovely pictures:
How do you win this awesome prize? You sumbit your family portraits here (and cross your fingers!).
If you have no family portraits to enter, then use this as your excuse to go and take some. They don’t have to be posed, or in any way technically perfect, the point of a portrait is to capture character. Have fun with it!
The photographs we have of our family are the most precious
So go and get snapping, you’ve got until October 10th to submit your portrait!
