Production Paradise is announcing the launch of their 2021 Spotlight Awards – a competition with a unique focus for advertising talent.
This is the 4th edition of the awards, the only photo competition that has created a judge’s panel that is solely filled with potential clients for commercial photographers. Judges like Jérémie Atlani (Senior Art Director at Chanel, France), Alayna Kunitake (Art Director at Ogilvy, Australia), Mari Torres (Senior Creative at McCann World group, Germany), Marjorieth Sanmartin (Executive Creative Director at TBWA, Germany), and Jamie Spence (Creative Director at Vogue, UK), among many others, will be choosing the winners who will be announced in early July 2021 – this competition might just be the most global online portfolio review a photographer could ever have.
The awards will have a submission period from April 9th to May 31st, 2021. Photographers may submit imagery in 13 professional categories: Advertising, Architecture & Interiors, Beauty, Cars, Corporate & Industrial, Fashion, Food & Drink, Kids, People & Lifestyle, Portrait & Celebrity, Sport, Still Life and Travel & Documentary.
Each category will have a single winner and all 50+ judges will choose a Grand Prize winner from the professional category winners.
There are over $35,000 worth of prizes, throughout 13 commercial categories and one special category.
Furthermore, in collaboration with ModelManagement.com, we invite photographers to create images that represent diversity, respect for each other or stand for a social cause in a special category: Story Telling: Shoot for a Cause.
ModelManagemet.com will offer photographers the opportunity to book models for this project free of charge, and will donate USD 1000 to the cause of the winner's choice. This exclusive category with ModelManagement.com will be free of charge to enter. One simply needs to meet the requirements of entering images that represent diversity, respect and a stand for a cause that the photographer believes in. Moreover, ModelManagement.com will provide the models needed for the shoot.
