In Flickr’s 20under20 scheme a panel of industry judges has picked the 20 most talented young photographers on the platform

“Some 15 to 20 years ago, to explore photography you had to be older, you had to have money to experiment, to buy a decent camera and the photography process was expensive,” said Bernardo Hernández, vice president of Flickr when announcing the scheme. “But today, photography has exploded, devices are portable and we see experimentation starting at a very early age. We believe that the best photography will emerge from people who are experimenting at a very young age.”

 

Hernandez chose the 20 photographers along with a panel consisting of photographers Lou Nobel, Cuba Gallery and Rosie Hardy. The winners (selection of images shown above) will be flown to New York for a gala prize-giving on October 1.

In addition, Vogue phoography director Ivan Shaw has chose Laurence Philomene (seection of images shown below) for the Curator’s Choice Award as part of which, he will mentor her for a year.
