The Sunday Times Generation Next Awards is a yearly event that reveals what the youth aged 8 – 23 in the country like the most. This event is run by HDi Youth Marketers and they have decided to add an extra category, besides favourite brands, this year.
All budding photographers between the ages of 8 and 23 should send in their photos taken with a DSLR, digital point and shoot, old school film camera or even a cellphone.
The only rules are that the photo must be 2 – 3 MB in size and they may not have been enhanced or worked on using photo applications like Instagram.
The theme for the photo is: Story of your city
Different categories are Kids and Tweens (8 – 12); Teens (13 – 19) and young adults (20 – 23)
The judges’ criteria: Originality, authenticity, composition and that ‘WOW’ factor.
Send photos via email to email@example.com. Include your name, age and contact details.
Closing date: 31 May 2013
There will be cool prizes to win and your photo may even be featured in Times Media newspapers like The Times, Sowetan and Sunday Times.
