How it worked...
- Entrants submitted a 60 second video telling us why they thought they should win the competition. The judges were looking for original ideas with flair - it was the content and message that counted, not the production. Entrants also submitted 3 of their best images to demonstrate their creativity and passion.
A shortlist of 10 entrants were selected to take part in the 3 below challenges.
- Challenge 1: Ahead of the Show, the shortlist were asked to submit a selfie. They were again judged on creativity and originality and a technical spec of how the image was created they were also required to prove it is a self portrait. This time, production values were also important.
A shortlist of 6 were selected and invited to attend The Photography Show on Monday, 20 and Tuesday, 21 March.
- Challenge 2: In the morning on the Monday, participants were set a photography challenge, to be completed within 2 hours inside the exhibition (Hall 5).
A shortlist of 3 were then selected for the live photo shoot.
- Live photo shoot: This last challenge had a focus on communication and directing skills, judged by a panel of well known industry representatives, all live on the Live Stage on the Tuesday of the show.
