Kuala Lumpur - KL Photo Award 2010

Monday, December 14, 2009 | |

More information : http://international-competition.blogspot.com/2009/12/kl-photo-award-2010.html

Deadline : 31st March 2010

AFTER AN IMPRESSIVE AND MUCH PRAISED INAUGURAL 2009 AWARDS, KLPHOTOAWARDS.COM AND TIME OUT KL ARE NOW CALLING FOR ENTRIES FOR THE 2ND INTERNATIONAL KL PHOTOAWARDS 2010 CONTEMPORARY PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION

Portraits are the most photographed genre in photography, from one's family snaps to a full studio session and not forgetting those special occasions. Contemporary portraits however may be derived from a wide range of disciplines in photography, from social images like documentary, reportage and editorial fields, to the more considered studio or 'staged' styles of conceptual 'tableau' images.

As in the previous year, the judges will be seeking to unearth new talent and vision from emerging and established artists alike. For the 2010 event, there will no longer be a distinction between Professional and Non-Professional categories. Instead, entrants may submit portraits either as Individual entries or as a Story.

The Howl Remix Contest. $50 prize. Deadline : January 31, 2010

We (the Industrial Jazz Group) will be selecting a winner based on that set of (admittedly vague) criteria. Said winner will receive $50, and will be given the option (if he or she so chooses) of having their creation included as a bonus track on the next Industrial Jazz Group recording (due out in 2010). He or she will also get a copy of said recording.

Robo-Pharaohs Build Pyramids is the main theme of this contest. The idea is based on a virtual time machine that takes ancient Egyptian Great-Pyramids builders inside classrooms of technical schools. The new target is to build parts of the three Pyramids in sequence. Competing team members should be accurate, fast and cooperative. They should adhere to the main requirement of not using binding material between blocks. The winner team is the "Robo-Pharaoh" which succeeds to finish building assigned parts of the three Pyramids first. During three minutes, red and blue teams compete in order to mimic one of the surviving Seven World Wonders.
