The folks at vivo has recently launched the VISION+ Mobile PhotoAwards 2021 in partnership with National Geographic. They are looking to encourage the joint creation of images, public education and the exploration of aesthetics.
vivo VISION+ Mobile PhotoAwards 2021
The VISION+ Mobile PhotoAwards is aimed at promoting mobile photography. It will act as a platform for global conversations surrounding mobile photography as well as encourage participants from professionals, enthusiasts and mobile phone users.
It was first launched back in 2020 by both vivo and National Geographic where it received more than 135,000 mobile photography submissions and presented 38 awards to finalists from nine countries as well as regions including China, UK, France, Spain, and Russia.
This year’s competition features six internationally acclaimed photography experts and academic disciples. The contest will also introduce more categories across three groups; Open Group, Youth Group and a new Professional Group.
The new Professional Group includes three new categories; News, Creative, and Documentary Projects, where they look to encourage professional photographers to interpret and express their feelings on modern culture, social trends, and the defining moments of the year. The Open and Youth Groups emphasize the beauty of daily life, human emotions and memories. The Open Group includes six categories; Portraits, Night, Sports, Nature, Life and Places. The Youth Group is a Special Feature that focuses on the subject of Surroundings.
They’ve said that it will feature 33 awards across all categories and winners will receive awards and creative support from vivo. Apart from general awards such as cash prizes, smartphones, and certificates, vivo will also collaborate with industry partners to provide winners with opportunities in commercial photography, urban outdoor exhibitions, and the publication of photographic works.
Pokdepinion: It seems nice and all, but when I went to the website, it’s in Chinese. That may deter people from joining for people who don’t understand the language. Or maybe.. they have another url for English. Hopefully that’s the case.
