Deadline for entries is 2nd November 2011.


To submit your application you'll need to prepare a project proposal (no more than 300 words) interpreting the theme "Reality Remade", as well as short biography (no more than 200 words), this should be accompanied by a portfolio of your work containing between 6 and 12 images (new and or old, and can be taken with any type of camera) supporting your proposal.

From the submissions received, our panel of judges, headed up by professional photographer Peter Dench and the Street Reverb team will select the five best proposals to move on to the final round of the competition.

Here each of the successful applicants will be given an expense budget of £300 and a Sony Ericsson Xperia ray with its 8MP camera, to help complete their project consisting of 5 new images on the theme, created with the Xperia device.
