Are you a keen photographer? Want to get your work noticed? Then why not enterTime Out Magazine'sShare Your Now contest? The contest is your opportunity to get your photography on the front cover of their first March issue. The issue, London: The Greatest City in The World, is due out on the 5th March and as you have probably guessed, is a celebration of England's capital. Time Out is asking for your help, and want you send in pictures of what you love about London. It could be a famous landmark, a bustling marketplace, or even your favourite place to eat. It doesn't matter what the photo is of, but to be in with a chance, they need to fulfil five criteria:
1. Make a Statement
A front cover of a magazine needs to grab the attention of the reader straightaway.
2. Be on the Spot
The composition of a shot is important. Think about the lighting, the colours, and what the image says about the city.
3. Get a Laugh
It doesn't have to be a laugh out loud moment, but it always a good idea to tickle the readers' fancy. Maybe something satirical, or just a blunt truth like in newspaper funnies.
4. Inspire the Reader
It is important to get an emotional response from your reader; something that makes them think 'there might be something in this magazine that I want to do.'
5. Set a Scene
Remember there will need to be text space in your picture so the magazine can inform the reader what is inside.
By entering, you will be put into a weekly prize draw for a chance to win a Galaxy Samsung Camera. Plus the grand prize for the three finalists will include a trip to New York City.
