The competition was designed to encourage budding photographers to upload and share their images based on four separate categories: Street, Portrait, Fashion and Abstract photography. Each category was based upon an individual photographer from the Royal Academy’s exhibition: Brassaï for his classic portraits, Capa for street photography, Moholy-Nagy for abstract photography and Pécsi and Munkácsi for fashion photography
The competition was open to entries for 6 weeks and received a magnificent response of over 5500 submissions.
The competition was judged by leading figures in the fields of Photography and Journalism:
Colin Ford CBE – Curator of Eyewitness exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, Laurence Earle - Executive Editor of the Independent on Sunday, Diane Smyth, Deputy Editor, British Journal of Photography, Steve Macleod – Creative Director of Metro Imaging.
'It has been a delight to be involved with the Royal Academy Eyewitness competition. With such a high quality and quantity of submissions, it has been a tough decision. However, the panel feel the winning images best represent their categories and are contemporary pictures which remain true to the styles of the Hungarian photographers’ – Colin Ford
