Getty Images have launched its inaugural Contour by Getty Images Portrait Prize, which aims to recognise excellence in portrait photography by an emerging photographer with fewer than five years industry experience.
At Getty Images, we are keenly aware of the skill level and attention to detail which portraiture photography requires. In 2013, to celebrate excellence in portraiture by emerging talent, we are launching our first ever Contour by Getty Images Portrait Prize.
A distinguished panel of experts led by famed fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh will judge the work:
· Georges Mohammed-Chérif, Founder and President, Buzzman
· Alain Genestar, Founder, Polka Magazine and Gallery
· Jean-Jacques Naudet, Founder and Editor-In-Chief, La Lettre de la Photographie
· Laurence Vecten, Director of Photography, Glamour
Entries will be accepted from June 13 through to August 5, 2013 (at 11:59 p.m. GMT/6:59 p.m. EST.) and can be submitted through Getty Images’ grants website.
Applicants should submit 10-20 images from their portraiture work along with a biography, brief explanation of their approach to portraiture, and description of what they would like to accomplish in their careers. For detailed information on how to enter, visit http://www.gettyimages.com/grants
Winners of the Contour by Getty Images Portrait Prize will be announced in October 2013.
