Metro Photo Challenge 2013
For 2013, we’re going to ask you to capture more of a process than a thing. And it’s a process with which both you and your camera have a lot of experience: sensing the world around you.
- The sixth sense
Six photos (one in each category) will be selected through the “Public Vote” and six photos (one in each category) will be selected by the local jury and be sent to the global final. The Global jury will select six photos (one in each category) as Global Winners. Out of these six Global Winners, one will be selected as the Grand Winner. Grand Prize – Photo Expedition to Ghana, West Africa, in the first quarter of 2014.
The Global Grand winner will be announced November 4, 2013
