If photography is your passion and earning money your goal, here is a deal for you. Google has announced Google Photography Prize, a global competition for students to create new themes for iGoogle.
How does it work? Winning submissions will be available for Google users around the world to display on their personalised iGoogle homepages, and will also be part of a special exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in London. The Google Photography Prize is open to higher education students around the world, and runs until May 31. You can enter by submitting a series of five photographs at google.com/photographprize.
Thirty-six top entries will be shortlisted and made open to an online public vote on June 11. The top six vote-winners will then be flown to London for the opening night of an exhibition of their work at the Saatchi Gallery, and the ultimate winner will be decided by a panel of art critics and artists, including Idris Khan, Martin Parr, Michael Hoppen, Susanna Brown and Tim Marlow.
So, what will you get if you win this apart from fame? A lot of moolah! Because Google says the winner will receive $7,500 and an invitation to spend a day with renowned photographer Martin Parr!
So, what are you waiting for? Log on to the iGoogle page and make the best of this competition.
