This is your chance to become a commissioned sports photographer, and win some great prizes along the way.
Channel 4 brings you Momentum, a photography competition in partnership with the BT Paralympic World Cup and Blipfoto – the unrivalled online creative community of daily photographers – to find the most instinctive, challenging and extreme sports photographers out there.
Momentum aims to uncover
fresh, hard-hitting action
sports photos, and photographers
capable of changing
perceptions about disability sports.
Together, we want to uncover dark and hard-hitting action sports photos that challenge the perception of disability sports. If you're a budding photographer with an out-of-the-box approach, this competition is perfect for you.
Launched in tandem with the BT Paralympic World Cup 2011, the competition runs from 23 May to 10 August. Finalists will be nominated by the Blipfoto community and the ultimate winners awarded some fabulous prizes.
Finalists will also be drawn to the attention of the C4Paralympics team, who may – depending on the quality of submissions– negotiate individual commissions to undertake photographic work as part of Channel 4’s continued disability sports coverage.
Photos will also be fed into the Channel 4 paralympics website, reaching a much wider audience and adding a whole layer of colour and texture, pushing the creative bar for the event that much higher.
