Simon Skinner - 2 months ago

Fujifilm has made a final call for creatives across the land to submit their pictures, from any device, be they smartphones or ‘traditional’ cameras, for its exciting new photography exhibition ‘My Life’.

As PhotoBite reported when breaking news of the new exhibition a short time ago, the event aims to showcase what life is like through the lens of people in the UK and is looking like it may well become the largest crowd-sourced photography exhibition the UK has ever seen.

‘My Life’ is all about everyday life for the British public, with a focus on under 25’s; their cultures, relationships and daily lives, that make the UK what it is to them and promises to provide a snapshot into Britain’s next generation.

The process is FREE and simple to enter. All you need to do is head over to Fujifilm’s dedicated website, pick from one of the six categories that you feel is most suitable for the image[s] you’d like to submit, and then submit up to three photographs.

All entries for the exhibition, successful or not, will receive a print of each image submitted directly from Fujifilm.

Entry is open until Friday 13th September and the exhibition will take place at London’s Truman Brewery between the 24th – 27th October 2019.

All entries will be automatically entered into an exciting competition to win one of nine instax SQ6 cameras, or a Fujifilm X-T100 mirrorless camera.

Fujifilm has partnered with The Mix for this initiative; a charity that provides information and emotional support to young people under the age of 25, through social, online and helpline services. 

Karina Thomsen, Head of Marketing, Photo Imaging at Fujifilm UK Ltd, said: “We are excited to see what the UK looks like through the lens of the UK public, and really showing the value of photography being printed out and shared away from social media. 2019 is a huge year of change in the UK and we feel that this exhibition allows us not to only showcase the country’s culture and identify, but also the chance to understand the emotional, creative and cultural impact these events are having on our younger generations.”

For every photo chosen to feature in the exhibition, Fujifilm will donate £2.50 to help support young people under 25 across the UK. 

Zoe Bailie, Director of Brand and Development, The Mix, said: “At The Mix young people tell us that they want to be seen and heard. They have had it with negative stereotypes and people judging their world and lifestyles. By partnering with Fujifilm on this ambitious project we are allowing thousands of people to show us through photography what it’s really like to be young today – the good and bad, the ups and downs. I can’t wait to see all the images representing young people’s lives printed for the exhibition. I’m sure it will be truly impactful.”

You can submit up to 3 photos per entry and for your chance to see your images in the exhibition visit Fujifilm’s dedicated pages HERE
