Competition

The Photographic Angle regularly runs photographic competitions which are open and accessible to everyone, regardless of their location, ability, experience, equipment or age.

Each competition has a theme, chosen by our Head of Design, and we welcome submissions that illustrate this theme showcasing originality and a unique viewpoint. The competitions are free to enter and TPA enlists the help of an independent judge who is given the responsibility of selecting the winning entries. One photographer whose entry is deemed the best representation of the competition theme will be awarded a prize.

Throughout the year, our Head of Design will also choose a selection of the best entries submitted to various competition themes for inclusion in one of our future photographic exhibitions. The chosen images will then be printed by the charity and exhibited at no expense to the photographers. If your work is chosen for inclusion you will be contacted via email and asked to send us high resolution versions of your work.

Urban Vista

A city is a living, breathing, pulsating organism. A vast concrete jungle that sprawls across the land acting as a playground for towering metallic and glass buildings. The skyline is often punctuated with construction cranes that enable the city to spread and grow. The forms and shapes of the urban landscape are familiar yet ever changing.

The city also bears witness to a dramatic collision between architecture and people. Cities and urban spaces, along with those who live and work in them, make a great subject for photographers. Dynamic urban images, taken within the confines of a built-up area, can help to tell the story of the city.  They can help to reveal the hidden beauty in the urban environment.

For this competition we are looking for your best shots of city views. That may mean shooting architecture, the streets, or capturing the essence of the city by photographing its people. You may wish to focus on areas of new construction and renovation in order to document the transformation of your city. Perhaps you will concentrate on the finer details of the buildings focusing on clean lines, symmetry, colour, detail and pattern. Or maybe you will be looking to captivate audiences with depictions of everyday life.

We are looking for images that express the city’s character, that make the familiar unfamiliar, that seek out the unnoticed beauty of the urban landscape. Help us to view your city of choice through new eyes.

Competition closes for entries on August 31st 2018

Francisco Willian is an Information Technology Analyst in Brazil. He can be found walking through the streets of Brazil, camera in hand, attempting to uncover the hidden secrets of everyday life. His urban explorations allow him to capture fractions of seconds from the lives of perfect strangers, and these images in turn reveal the character of his city. The result is a visual diary, a collection of heartfelt but common moments, personal memories, places he's been and things he's seen.
