The CR Photography Annual 2011, in association with Corbis, is now open for entries. Categories: Personal/Non-Published, Advertising, Editorial, Design, Conceptual and, new for this year, Moving Image
Each year the CR Photography Annual (last year’s cover shown above, spreads from last year’s Annual below) celebrates the best in commercial photography from the previous year. The winning work will be published in a special double November issue of CR. Our categories are:
Self-initiated or experimental work which has not been commissioned or published.
Work commissioned by advertising agencies including posters and press ads.
Photography shot specifically for and/or art directed by photolibraries.
Work commissioned by design consultancies for packaging, annual reports, record sleeves, books and any other use.
Commissioned photography for magazines and newspapers including fashion.
This year, in recognition of the fact that so many photographers are also shooting moving image alongside their stills work, we are also introducing a Moving Image Category. Work for this category should be moving image pieces by photographers (no film directors please) that were either shot as part of a wider project involving both still and moving image or were standalone pieces. They can be commissioned or non-commissioned and may be for web/viral use, for exhibitions etc. Broadcast TV commercials or idents may also be submitted if they were shot by people working principally as photographers. As this is the first year we have run this category we want to be as flexible as possible: if you have any queries over whether your piece may be admissible to this category, please contact us on email@example.com or call +44 (0)20 7970 4772
