Photograph Award: Amazing experience being in the judging panel!

IdeasTap Photographic Award: Finalists

Last night, in a gallery just off Brick Lane, the finalists for the IdeasTap Photographic Award were announced. IdeasTap, Magnum Photos and a whole host of members were present to admire 12 shortlisted collections of amazing photography from the IdeasTap community, but there could only be six finalists on the night…

Chaired by IdeasTap founder Peter De Haan, the judging panel included Magnum Photographer Peter Marlow, Sunday Telegraph photography critic Lucy Davis, London University of the Arts Photography Lecturer Adrian Mott, Art Programmer Maggie O’Regan and award-winning freelance photographer (and IdeasTap member) Ambra Vernuccio.

The award was split into two different age groups, 16-22 and 22-30, and separated into conceptual, photojournalism and environmental categories. All in all, we had almost 350 applicants.

Each of the 12 shortlisted applicants received a mentoring session from a Magnum photographer and had their work made into a book by Blurb publishers. Of the 12, the six category winners will get £1,500 towards another photography project.

Two overall winners from each age group (to be announced next spring) will be the recipients of a £5,000 cash prize and internships at Magnum Photos – one with the Magnum in Motion team in New York (one week); the other a six-week paid internship with Magnum in London.

Here are the results…
