The World’s First Photography Competition Judged by AI and a Leica Photographer with Huawei Announced

Share

Huawei has launched a competition to spark a renaissance in photography and discover the next stars of Western Europe’s photography scene, as rated by the HUAWEI P20 Pro’s AI and Alex Lambrechts, a top Leica photographer.  The campaign is the latest activity for the HUAWEI P20 Series launch campaign and brings to life Huawei’s leadership in AI photography.

“We have trained the AI in our P20 Pro smartphone to understand what makes an amazing photo” explains Andrew Garrihy, CMO Huawei Western Europe. ‘This innovation is helping us to identify emerging creative talent across Europe and showcase their photography potential to others. ”

Budding photographers will be encouraged to submit their photography by some of Europe’s most influential opinion leaders, chosen for their passion for photography, art and design. Photos can be uploaded via an interactive Chatbot on FB Messenger and will be reviewed and rated using the AI algorithm on the HUAWEI P20 Pro. Trained using 4,000,000 images taken by professional photographers and picture editors the AI will then give each photo a personalised AI score based on parameters such as focus, jitter, deflection, colour and composition.

The competition, which is open to the public, is open for the next eight weeks and will feature five different themes over the course of the competition, including ’A New Renaissance’, ‘After Dark’ and ‘Deep in Detail’.

A prize will be awarded for the best photograph within each theme, giving entrants five chances to win a HUAWEI P20 Pro. The top overall winners (10 in total) will ultimately be selected to win a trip to Italian art capital Florence, home of the Renaissance, to attend a Leica photography masterclass.

The photos captured in Florence will then be judged by Huawei’s AI and a top Leica photographer, and for one lucky winner, there’s the ultimate prize of being whisked away for a grand tour across three of Europe’s most picturesque countries. The best photos from the competition will be sold to raise money for a local charity.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 15 July 2018

Share

‘How to fail’ is a podcast series by journalist and novelist Elizabeth Day, whereupon she interviews celebrities and asks them to list three examples, demonstrating their  failures in life. Perhaps, not surprisingly, men somewhat balked at the idea that they’d failed at anything and when pressed, admitted to losing tennis matches, or the inability to get souffles to rise, whereas women confessed they had trouble limiting the list to just three failures. Naturally, my thoughts drifted to my own failures, where to start… trying too hard to find love as a teenager complete with ‘mistakes’…, not selling my first cottage before the property crash in 1990 when I was 21, progressing too soon with pregnancy following major liver surgery, I could go on, of course. Day explains “the only way to survive [life crises] is to surrender to the process”. Like Day, it dawned on me that I had my work and I am lucky because my work here at TheAppWhisperer, comfortably means I am never fully alone, I always have the most gracious company, by my side. And you’ll see them in his weeks’ Mobile Photography & Art showcase, a glowing example of true, dear artists. And, actually, when looking at my failures, I could also see my successes, which curiously ran alongside. Had I not been so starved of love as a young girl, I may not have met the man that I married, who worships, not only ever area of my physical body, but also my mind, he is my nourishment, he is my strength. Had I indeed sold my cottage in 1990, then I would not have had a place to rehabilitate, following major life saving liver surgery in 1993. Had I not become pregnant in late 1995, my dear son, Jake would not be here, with us today. The riches of life can sometimes only be learned from our failures. As Day who listed divorce as one her failures explained, as she folded her wedding dress into a box, wrapping it carefully in layers of tissue paper for the nice woman in Shropshire who had bought it on eBay realised, this wasn’t failure at all, it was a part of life, she had learned from it and now she was letting it go, the failure had departed, the creator had returned.

Enjoy this triumph of a showcase, each singular image has the capacity to provoke and to surprise, each one, full of life.

Thank you to all artists for submitting your works. If you would like your work to be considered for entry in to our weekly Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group, please submit it to our dedicated group, here.
