Europe Through a Lens – November 2014

ETAL logosmall

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!

For September, we have chosen the theme "On the edge of Europe", but of course it's completely up to you and your powers of imagination as to how you interpret it – anything from natural borders in the form of mountains or bodies of water to political and social frontiers.

Summer in Europe

ETAL logosmall

They say a picture paints a thousand words, so we've set out to discover what photography might tell us about today's Europe and are pleased to be able to announce our first set of winners.

Given the high standard of images submitted to very first edition of E&M's new photo competition Europe Through a Lens, judging was no easy task. This month's theme "Summer in Europe" inspired a number of original images, ranging from sun-drenched picnickers and abandoned sandcastles to more adventurous scenes of exploration and discovery.

After much deliberation, the judges decided to award first place to Tobias Melzer for A lovely day for the beach, praising the incongruity and peculiar innocence of the photo. They were struck by contrast between the drab grey sky and gaudy beach gear and by the fact that it was not a typical image of a glorious summer's day. Tobias, who is from Germany and has been interested in photography since he was a child, captured the image near Whitley Bay in the north-east of England while on holiday last August.

They say a picture paints a thousand words, so we're setting 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. So we're introducing a new competition Europe Through a Lens to Sixth Sense and are going to be 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.

With the summer holiday season upon us, we're kicking things off with the theme "Summer in Europe".  So think maybe beaches, sunshine, sandcastles... In the end though, it's up to you and your powers of imagination: everyone is completely free to interpret the theme as they wish.

The prize

The top three entries will be published on the E&M website each month, but we'll also aim to use as many entries as possible within future editions of magazine, 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 August 2014

Come on, get snapping!
