Campaign has joined forces with Image Bank, the UK’s largest

picture and film library, to launch a creative photography competition

that aims to unearth the hottest talent in the industry.



The competition is open to readers of Campaign worldwide and will be

judged by a high-profile panel, including the photographer, Nadav

Kander, and the designer, Wally Olins.



They will be joined by Roland Schenk, the creative director of

Campaign’s publisher, Haymarket Publishing; Rebecca Willis, the travel

editor of Vogue; and Image Bank’s photographer, Paul Biddle and its

managing director, Mark Cass.



The competition will encompass six categories with deliberately loose

definitions to give entrants a free rein creatively. The six categories

are: Street Life, Private View, Young and Old, Global Brief, Sporting

Life and Working World.



Cass said: ’There is a pool of untapped talent out there and we want to

encourage contributions from people who are looking for an opportunity

to be creative.’



The six category winners will each receive pounds 250 worth of

photographic goods at Metro/Tapestry. The overall winner will win a

weekend trip to New York, including a visit to Image Bank’s head office,

and pounds 1,000 worth of Metro/Tapestry goods.



Competition and entry details are available on page 15 of this issue and

on the Image Bank Website (www.imagebank.co.uk).



Image Bank represents work by top international artists, photographers

and cinematographers.



The library supplies stills, illustrations and film footage to clients

ranging from advertising and design agencies to film and production

companies.
