The Fujifilm Student Awards 2013 is now open for entries. This year’s Award is run in conjunction with ChooseFilm.com and Metroprint, the online arm of Metro, the respected London pro lab.
The theme for this year’s Award is ‘The Colour Of….’ with students being briefed to capture an image that that illustrates how colour lights up their world.
All images must be taken on Fujifilm Professional film and submitted via www.fujifilmstudentawards.co.uk – entry is free and students can enter as many photographs as they wish.
In a new twist to this year’s awards, entries will be open to all students in the UK, not just those undertaking courses involving photography. This decision was taken following several requests from students who are keen photographers but not actually studying photography. In addition to being named Fujifilm Student Photographer of the Year 2013 the winner will also be presented with £200 worth of film from Fujifilm, a professionally produced folio of prints and a one-to-one printing/consultancy session with one of Metroprint’s top printers. The winning image will also feature in an exhibition to be held in London next summer.
This year sees the introduction of a monthly ‘Curator’s Choice’ where one image will be selected and featured on the Award’s website and social media channels. The winner of each monthly award will be presented with a free 12” x 16” professionally produced print of their winning image by Metroprint as well as 10 rolls of Fujifilm film. Each monthly winner will also feature in the winner’s exhibition in Summer 2013.
The college or university that submits the most entries will win £200 worth of Fujifilm Professional film.
