Welcome to the first Photojournalism Now: Friday Round Up for 2018.
Today we are sweltering in Melbourne with 42 degrees Celsius, that’s 107.6 Fahrenheit! Yes, it’s hot! But it’s summer downunder…
As with every new year, it’s great to look back on the past 12 months. Last year Photojournalism Now: Friday Round Up featured the work of literally hundreds of photographers from around the world, some well known, others not so, all doing really amazing, and important work.
Today’s post features some photographic highlights from the posts between July and December, 2017. Next week will feature the first six months of 2017.
But before looking back, a couple of announcements. There are two photography competitions you may like to consider entering, the Head On Photo Awards, Australia’s largest photography competition that is open to international entries, and a left of field competition in Berlin:
Head On Photo Awards
The annual Head On Photo Awards are now open for entries. There are four categories: Portrait, Landscape, Mobile and Student. Over 14 years there have been 78 winners and 770 finalists, with over half a million dollars in prizes awarded.
The 2018 prize pool is worth over $60,000 in cash and product including some awesome cameras from Fujifilm and Olympus. Importantly, winners are exhibited throughout the Head On Photo Festival (May 2018) in Sydney, with selected works also touring internationally. It’s a great opportunity to gain visibility in a recognised and respected festival.
Deadline: 25 February 11pm (Sydney, Australia).
Where and how does money flow in the water sector?
The Water Integrity Network in Berlin has launched its 2018 photography competition on the theme: Where and how does money flow in the water sector? It’s an interesting question to try and visualise.
Deadline: 16 February.
