FRESH M.I.L.K. PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION â€“ CLOSES DEC 31 2008
$125,000 PRIZE POOL $50,000 TOP PRIZE
NO ENTRY FEE, OPEN TO ANYONE, JUDGED BY ELLIOTT ERWITT (MAGNUM PHOTOGRAPHER)
M.I.L.K. Licensing is currently holding Fresh M.I.L.K. â€“ a $125,000 international competition to find photographs that capture spontaneous and humorous moments shared between friends, family and lovers around the world.
In 1999, British publisher Hodder Headline (now Hachette Livre) held a global photographic competition called M.I.L.K. designed to find unique and geographically diverse images on the themes of friendship, family and love. It was not only the richest in photographic history, but also one of the most significant, drawing participation from 17,000 professional and amateur photographers in 164 countries. In total over 40,000 images were received by M.I.L.K., including at least four Pulitzer Prize winners. The 300 winning images were chosen by Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt and became the basis for a published collection.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the original M.I.L.K. competition, M.I.L.K. Licensing (now a subsidiary of PQ Blackwell), in association with Elliott Erwitt, is conducting a new competition founded on the themes of friends, families, lovers and laughter to create a new collection of 150 images. The 150 winning images will be published in a new book entitled Fresh M.I.L.K.: Friends, Families, Lovers & Laughter in Fall 2009, and on selected licensed products. All of the featured photographers will retain copyright of their images in exchange for granting M.I.L.K. a non-exclusive licence.
We are inviting both professional and gifted amateur photographers from around the world to submit their images online now. 150 images will be chosen as finalists and the overall winner, chosen by Elliott Erwitt, will receive $50,000.
This is a chance to have a photograph become part of a world-renowned collection and be published in a prestigious international book.
