Competition Statement:

EyeTime 2013 invites students and young professionals or enthusiasts to submit a collection of their photography comprised of up to three digital images. By submitting your work, we invite you to share your voice with the collective intelligence of a community of visual thinkers. The competition is free to all entrants. 

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 2013 poses the following questions: What are the aspirations by which we evaluate photography today? In an increasingly networked culture, what makes an image capable of cutting through the virtual noise, and starting a new conversation? How do evolving forms of media affect the way in which your message reaches its destination? What is your message? 

Eyetime 2013 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, Resource magazine, Light Stalking, Shutter Sisters, Psychology for Photographers, and the ICP. We look forward to your participation.
