Competition Statement:

The proliferation of device culture, social networking, and cloud technology are changing the way we create, and connect on a daily basis. For photography, this means that technology is not only transforming the process of production, but also the processes through which we share, critique, and organize ourselves around the work we do. The competition is first, and foremost an experiment in distributed intelligence. By leveraging the “wisdom of crowds” every entrant can see and understand how his or her work is experienced by others. It has been predicted that in 2020, there will be 50 billion mobile internet connections worldwide, the equivalent of seven devices per person. Thus, this competition is not simply about the existence of technology, but rather why and how we harness it as artists.
As the paradigm shift from analog to digital is paired with the emergence of platforms for the digital consumption of images, photography inherently reassess its methods, media and subjects, in order to establish a dialogue with an audience whose visual abilities are increasingly expanded by technology. Thus, this competition challenges you to confront the world with your photography. By sending it out into the field you will test yourself and your work. You are the artist, the curator and the critic. EyeTime 2012 poses the following questions: How are your photos perceived? What does it take for an image to make a difference within the continuous overflow of data and information we currently inhabit? How can images impact evolving forms of media in order to engage audiences with their message? What is your message?

EyeTime 2012 was assembled by photographers, professors and students as a means to publically promote the research, exploration and investigation currently happening amongst today’s emerging talent. The competition is supported by the ICP (International Center of Photography), APA (American Photographic Artist), ADC (Art Directors Club), and is hosted by The Morpholio Project. The guest jury includes participants from Wired magazine, Wallpaper magazine, PetaPixel, Resource magazine and the ICP. Finalists are selected in two categories: Emerging Talent and Future Voices. We look forward to your participation.
