The Annual 2017 - call for submissions
The call for submissions for the biggest Capture edition of the year is now open. The Annual is a showcase of the year's best and strongest work from Australian and international professional, emerging, and student photographers shot between 31 July 2016 and 31 July 2017. Will your work make the cut?
Also included in this bumper edition are a collection of feature articles, The Year in Review, which provide a snapshot of the industry in 2017 across a variety of genres including Wedding & Portrait, Editorial, and Advertising. We'll canvas opinions from some of the sharpest and brightest minds in the industry, both here and from overseas.
You won't want to miss this very special edition, and don't miss the opportunity to make a submission of your very finest work for consideration.
The deadline is 21 August 2017 at 11:59pm Eastern Standard Time (GMT +10). Plus it's free.
All the details are available below.
Full instructions on how to make a submission are at the end of the survey, which takes two minutes to complete.
