Mobile Photography – Final Call for Entries to Huawei and Dazed ‘Reveal the Real You’ Photography Initiative

Share

Global smartphone manufacturer, Huawei, and youth culture magazine, Dazed, are issuing a final call for creatives to enter their ‘Reveal the Real You’ initiative. Due to high demand, entries to the community-led photo project have been extended to October 1st 2017 and will see three collaborators awarded a £10,000 bursary to donate to the community cause of their choice. The project is the latest partnership from Huawei that aims to inspire people to use their smartphone as a tool of self-expression.  

The campaign officially launched at the Peckhamplex cinema on 4th September 2017 with a large-scale street exhibition featuring images shot by emerging photography talent and Peckham local, Campbell Addy. Addy used the project as an opportunity to shine a light on social diversity within the local creative community and showcased ten images including a portrait of King Owusu who featured in the historic all-black Pirelli 2017 calendar.

Commenting on his work, Addy said: “I want to shine a light on the artists of South London, breaking down the expected view of artists as the privileged middle class. I am championing the people of Peckham who are ‘doing the most with the least”.

Addy’s images were shot on the Huawei P10 and serve as a call to action – inspiring other young people to pick up a camera and document the causes and community that have had an impact on their lives. People interested in entering simply need to share a few sentences on their chosen community and 3 – 5 relevant images from their photography portfolio and as Reveal the Real You gathers momentum it will culminate in a shortlist of twenty photographers being given Huawei P10 smartphones to document their stories. A panel of expert, independent judges will then award three winners £10,000 each to donate to the charity of their choice as well as being an exhibition of their winning imagery to raise the profile of their cause further.

Evidenced by its partnership with Leica, the camera brand that democratised photography by taking cameras out of the studio and onto the streets, Huawei believes in photography as the medium through which anyone can share their stories and opinions thanks to its smartphones. ‘Reveal the Real You’, harnesses the power of mobile phone photography, making it possible for anyone to shine a spotlight on communities, causes and ideologies that they feel passionately about.

Andrew Garrihy; Huawei Europe, CMO said: “The photography capabilities on our phones allow anyone to take thought provoking images. Putting that power in people’s hands, has given everyone a platform to tell their story and help others understand more about their passions and beliefs through images. Reveal the Real You is simply an extension of what people do every day. We want to give inspired, committed people the opportunity to make a difference in their local community; give them a platform to get their voice heard and make things they never thought possible happen.”

Reveal the Real You is one element of a wider partnership Huawei has formed with Dazed, which will see Huawei smartphones act as the lens that shine a light on a variety of causes, creations and conversations that were previously hidden or hard to reach.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus Reviewed – DxOMark

Share

Just published by David Cardinal for DxOMark the Apple iPhone 8 Plus review makes interesting reading. “The Apple iPhone 8 Plus is the best-performing mobile device camera we have ever tested. Its overall DxOMark Mobile score of 94 sets a new record, beating out the 90 points for both the Google Pixel and the HTC U11, as well as the 92 that its sibling iPhone 8 just scored. Its Photo score of 96 is also a new record, blowing past the Pixel’s 90. For Video, its score of 89 is among our highest, but tied with the HTC U11 and slightly below the Pixel’s 91. Of course, the Pixel is nearly a year old now, so it makes sense that Apple’s new flagship is breaking new ground”, said Cardinal.

Mobile Photography – TrueView Interview – ‘Why I create Self Portraiture’ with Cecilia São Thiago from Brazil

Share

Our TrueView Interview section is an area where we ask one singular question, to mobile photographers and artists and it is captured to video. This time, we asked highly accomplished Mobile Photographer and Artist, Cecilia São Thiago from Brazil to consider and answer ‘why I create self portraiture with my smartphone’. It is an interesting question to ponder, there are over 1.8 billion photos shared around the internet each day, many of these are selfies. The difference, we feel in our questioning is that we are asking artists. Therefore, do artists take self portraits because it gives them the opportunity to view themselves from the outside? That a considerable amount of other thoughts will, we hope, be uncovered in our new series of TrueView Interviews, enjoy!

Many artists are working on their videos right now and each video is as unique and individual as each artist. We are fully conscious and respectful that you are all capturing a part of yourself and sharing it with us and we love it.

Thank you for being a reader and viewer of our wonderful site. If you would like to view our previous TrueView Interviews, please go here.
