Sydney, Australia, August 4 2011 – Corbis Images, a leading visual media provider for the creative community, today announced the prestigious Creatives Behind the Lens competition which recognises the talents of creative professionals in the Asia-Pacific region who double as amateur photographers, will return for its second year.
The competition originated in Europe and debuted in Australia in 2009, and has attracted more than 1,000 entries from across the country in previous years.
The Creatives Behind the Lens competition is open to all non-professional photographers working in the creative industries across Asia Pacific – including Australia, China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. This year’s competition is supported by several prominent media partners including Semi Permanent, Campaign Brief, China Advertising, Longyin Review and Market Builder.
The competition opens today, and entrants have until 31st August 2011 to submit their work online at www.creativesbehindthelens.com.
Submissions will be judged by a local panel of esteemed industry professionals in China, Hong Kong and Australia, including Julian Melhuish, Creative Director at Saatchi Design Sydney, Marc Gafan, Editor of Capture Magazine, Vince Frost, Founder and Creative Director of Frost Design and Australian Photographer Tamara Dean.
The second round of judging will then be conducted by a regional panel.
Winners will be announced in mid-September, and their work will be featured online and published in the Creatives Behind the Lens exclusive print piece, with exposure to thousands of creative professionals.
Previous competition winners include creatives from The Brand Agency, Whybin TBWA, BMF, GPY&R and Clemenger BBDO.
“We’ve seen some exceptionally talented photographers come through the Creatives Behind the Lens competition in previous years, with hundreds of entrants delivering works to an incredibly high standard,” says Michele Yeung, Marketing Director for Corbis in Asia Pacific & Global Channel.
