The Open Photo Contest

Call for Submissions

The Open is a worldwide search for the greatest photographers of our generation. It features both online and live events and delivers one of the largest prize purses in the photo industry. The Open is designed from the ground up to generate widespread exposure and business-building opportunities for photographers. It also connects directly with 50,000 creative industry professionals from North America, Europe, Latin America and Australia – art directors to photo editors and publishers to ad agencies – who tap into The Open to discover new talent. Photographers can also sell gallery quality prints through FotoMoto on their Artist’s Page on The Open.

The Open is comprised of five categories (Action, Street, Nature, People, Open) and two separate events:
1. SOLO: An online competition gallery of single images, where half of the finalists are selected by an expert panel of judges and the other half are driven by public voting, fueled by the major social media platforms.
2. LIVE: A mind-blowing live competition in which 6 invited photographers choreograph the best images of their careers into 7-minute productions. The LIVE event takes place on September 28, 2012 in Vancouver, Canada.

Eligibility: True to its name, The Open welcomes all photographers worldwide.

Prize: The Open delivers one of the largest cash prize purses in photo history: $50,000US. $25,000US for the SOLO competition, $25,000 for the LIVE competition.

Deadline: August 1, 2012
