The global technology leader, Xiaomi, has a surprise for mobile photographer enthusiasts.
Running on its second year, the Xiaomi Photography Challenge invites everyone to submit their most creative photos taken using any Xiaomi phone. With this year’s theme “Ordinary | Extraordinary”, the contest aims to showcase and discover the uniqueness of everyday life. Photos will be divided into four categories–Natural look (portraits), Piece of the World (landscapes and “big” scenes), Dreamscape (light in the darkness) and Why So Serious? (creative photos).
This year’s challenge boasts a distinguished panel of judges, including Gueorgui Pinkhassov and Jerome Sessini who are both members of the world renowned organization Magnum Photos. Xiaomi senior vice president Wang Xiang, as well as vice president and Xiaomi India managing director Manu Jain, will also join the panel to pick the top 100 finalists. Deadline for the submission of entries is on November 22.
Mi Fans around the globe will have the chance to cast their votes and choose the grand winners by logging in to Xiaomi’s website from November 27 to December 6 2018.
The first Xiaomi Photography Challenge was held in 2017 with more than 13,000 participants from around the world. The grand winner last year brought home 30,000 USD.
