Europe Through a Lens – November 2014

Written by

They say a picture paints a thousand words, so we've set out to discover what photography might be able to tell us about today's Europe.

Here at E&M, we don't just want to know what young Europeans think about Europe, we also want to find out how they see and feel the continent. As part of the newly-revamped Sixth Sense, we have introduced a photo competition called Europe Through a Lens and are publishing a selection of our readers' photographic work on a regular basis. All you have to do is submit images that you think best represent our European theme of the month.

Now that the clocks have gone back and the days are getting shorter, we've selected the theme of "Europe at night". So think maybe moonlit skies or street lamps casting shadows onto deserted pavements, perhaps even a club dancefloor or the queue for the last bus home... In the end though, it's up to you and your powers of imagination: feel free to interpret the theme however you wish!

The prize

The top three entries will be published on the E&M website each month. The winner of first place will be interviewed about their work for Sixth Sense and offered the chance to pitch a piece for the next edition of the magazine. We'll also aim to use as many entries as possible within future magazine and blog articles, so you can show off your skills and get your photos out to a wider audience.

Our judges will be on the lookout for particularly creative and original images. These might tell a story or illustrate an unusual aspect of European society. One thing's for sure, though; they'll all exhibit a deeply personal approach to Europe.

Closing date for this month's competition: 25 November 2014

Come on, get snapping!

If the Editorial team had an actual office it would have to stretch from the corner of Britain to the edges of Spain, Sweden, Germany and beyond. (With frequent trips to America too) .  The term 'from the editorial office' then, is very much a figure of speech.
