It’s time once again for Shanghai’s
only favorite music + arts festival! And you can be part of it this year if you fancy yourself savvy with a camera. This year JUE Festival is teaming up with fashion brand ospop to launch the JUE Next Generation Photo Competition. Not only will they showcase a selection of 15 winners as part of the festival, they’re also offering a cash prize of 10,000RMB to the winning photographer, and 3,000RMB to the runner-up!
Here’s more from JUE on the theme of this year’s competition:
The initial inspiration for ospop. products was the humble Jiefang shoe. Jiefang shoes are mostly worn by workers on construction sites and are famous for their durability in all kinds of weather and circumstances. These rubber shoes are never fancy, but their reliability and comfort are second to none. Just like the workers who wear them, they have entered the Chinese psyche as a symbol of diligence and endurance, common but noble nonetheless.
In celebration of this spirit, “Work” is the theme of this year’s JUE NEXT GEN competition. All photographers in China, whether professionals or passionate hobbyists, are invited to submit their photos around the theme of “Work” by March 3 for a chance to win.
They’re now open for submissions, and you can submit your entry on their website until March 3. All photographers (pros or amateurs) are invited to participate. 15 finalist photos will be exhibited at Central Studios in Shanghai from March 9th to the 23rd.
And don’t forget to vote for your favorite work. There are plenty of submission to browse already! The photo with the most votes will win the “People’s Choice Award” and goodies from ospop.
