SONY World Photo Student Competition

Every year the SONY World Photo Organization holds a student competition on a theme with major equipment prizes and travel to London, UK if you are selected. This year the competition is open to all OCADU Photo students between the ages of 18-30 (along with schools around the world).

The competition is split into two challenges, with a shortlist of 10 students selected after the first challenge. The second and final challenge will then be given to the finalists.

2020 First challenge: Invisible lines

The world we live in is structured around a variety of invisible lines. This could be in a natural environment (ie oceans, mountains, forests), in our society (ie gender, wealth, race), or intellectually. Show the judges the stories of people fighting against that and trying to break the invisible lines that most intrigues you in a positive way.

  • Choose and upload at https://www.worldphoto.org/sony-world-photography-awards/student-focus/submission (password: 2020@student) a zip file with the image series of 5-10 images that the student thinks is responding best to the challenge of ‘Invisible Lines’. These image series will represent your institution in the 2019 Student competition.

  • When uploading your zip file, please keep the size below 10MB
  • Please name the images as follows:

Berlin-Toronto Exchange Exhibition

Fall 2019 Berlin-Toronto Exchange Exhibition Opportunity

During the fall term, an exchange exhibition will take place between Photo students at OCADU and the University of Europe in Berlin. Student work from each school will be installed at the partner school, printed from selected digital files. OCADU Photo students in the 300 and 400 level are invited to submit up to 5 images from a series.

This exhibition is planned in coordination with the teaching exchange between Professors Peter Sramek of OCADU and Walter Bergmoser of the University of Europe, who will teach this fall at the opposite school. The OCAD works will be installed in Berlin by Peter Sramek and the UE Masters students.

For the OCADU students, there will not be a pre-determined theme, rather students are invited to submit work that represents a key conceptual direction in their own photographic output. Selection will be coordinated by Peter Sramek. Not all work will be included.

Files will be uploaded as a folder with the student’s name into the folder Exchange OCADU in Berlin:
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1sASbXt6WQVVpmYCuKqnwiox5ruWVVHki?usp=sharing

Image files must be named ‘FirstinitialLastname_Imagenumber’, in tiff or jpeg format and set to 300 ppi and approximately 20×24 inches in dimension.

Files which are too small will not be considered for printing.

A text document with the student’s name, year level, project title and up to 50 word statemen.t is to be included. Not all of the submitted works will be selected and you may wish to include fewer than 5 as a more specific edit.

Deadline: September 15, 2019
