Sony World Photography Awards; Moving Image Award

Entry Start; 1 June 2011  Entry Close 6 January 2012

The Moving Image Award seeks photographers who are experimenting with moving image narrative formats, using all the tools available through editing software and sound to create new forms of storytelling, combined with the use of the photographer's eye. We want entrants to explore how photography can evolve into new forms of visual narratives using audio, music, video, animation and graphics.

With a wide range of categories available to enter, from Commercial to Nature and Wildlife, entrants can seek inspiration in almost any walk of life. 

Entries must be no longer than 3 minutes but can be an excerpt from a longer piece. It will be at the judges liberty to request to see the full-length piece, however, they will be judging the 3 minute video as a stand-alone piece of work.

Please note, you must be an Advanced or Premium Member to enter this competition. Advanced Members can submit 1 entry and Premium Members can submit up to 3 entries. Find out more about upgrading your membership here.
