The competition lays down the challenge to aspiring photographers around the world to shoot new - capturing something from a different angle or something never previously photographed - using a megapixel camera phone. To inspire people to enter, the stellar line-up of professional photographers have themselves been 'shooting new' using the Nokia N90 advanced imaging device. More than 60 brand new images from these photographers can be viewed at www.seenew.com. As well as hoping to inspire entrants with their images, the five photographer's will also be judging entries and offering a money cant buy prize - the chance to spend a day with them assisting on a photoshoot.
Pekka Rantala, Senior Vice President, Multimedia Marketing, Nokia, said: After pioneering the concept of mobile photography, were now pioneering an exciting new photography challenge. The See New Competition is designed to encourage people to explore the possibilities of camera phone photography and uncover new photography talent from around the world. Its a unique competition both in terms of the caliber of professional photographers involved and by its global scale.
Award-winning photographer Nick Waplington added: Photography as a medium has developed to the point where its around us, in all manners, at all times. Camera phones have played a big part in this, pushing the boundaries of when and how so there are many more opportunities to shoot new.
The Nokia See New competition is open to anyone over the age of 18 with a megapixel camera phone. Deadline for entries is 16 December 2005. Full terms and conditions can be found at www.seenew.com.
