Clothes Show Li’ve is continuing its support for young fashion and design talent with the return of the second ever Young Fashion Photographer of the Year Competition in association with Nikon. This years competition invites budding 16-25 year old fashion photographers from across the UK to create a picture that encapsulates the historical era ‘Cool Britannia, a term coined to sum up the mood in Britain during the late 1990s which was closely associated to the fashionable London scene, the Britpop music movement and the early years of the New Labour government of Tony Blair. Revisit this era and use your imagination and photographic skills to create and shoot an image which demonstrates what Cool Britannia means to you in 2007. The closing date for entries is 17th October 2007.
A panel of judges will choose the ten best entries whose work will then be displayed at Clothes Show Li’ve 2007 – which runs at the Birmingham NEC between 7th and 12th December 2007.
The overall winner will receive Â£2000 prize money, a one week placement with a top photographer (I’m interested in this kind of prizes), Â£1000 worth of Nikon photographic equipment and a VIP lunch at the show for the winner and 3 friends (yamy…).
The runners-up will have their work displayed at the show, plus will get the opportunity to take their own pictures in the photography pit at the fashion theater on the day of the competition.
