The 2014 Student Focus Competition is now open for entries. 

This year’s brief asks students to enter an image for the front page of a newspaper. It can be sensational or low key, from a local cat rescue to an international environmental concern. It can document your family, your friends,  your neighbourhood, your people, your country or your world but it must make us want to learn more.

Most of today’s front pages are made of pixels rather than paper, but they still have to do the same job they’ve been doing since 1880. They have to tell us a story in one frame and they have to make us want to read on and ultimately, buy the paper.

Draw attention to an issue that means something to you. Create tomorrow’s news in one image.

Think you’re up to the challenge?  Read the full brief and details here, and speak to your tutor about submissions today. 

The World Photography Organisation’s Student Focus programme offers an international platform to support and connect the next generation of photographers. Engaging with over 200 international institutions, the annual Student Focus competition selects ten students from across the world to engage in talks, forums, exhibitions, symposiums, portfolio sessions and more.
