HARMAN announces 2013 UK student photographic competition

The theme of this year’s Harman Technology photo competition is “Pride & Prejudice” (A reflection on the world today) and it is open to students of any age who are undertaking a full or part-time course at a UK based school, college, or university.

Judges will be looking for images that as well as being technically excellent, provoke an emotional response and show an understanding of the brief.

As in previous years’ there will be two categories and students will be free to enter as many prints as they wish in one, or both categories.

Category 1 is for photographs from conventional ILFORD or Kentmere black and white film and printed by the student on either ILFORD or Kentmere traditional black and white darkroom papers. Category 2 is for inkjet prints from digital capture printed on HARMAN CRYSTALJET ELITE RC inkjet paper.

In each category there will be prizes for the winner and a runner up.

The winners’ prize will consist of:

* A certificate and title of either HARMAN technology Student Photographer of the year 2013 (digital) or ILFORD PHOTO Student Photographer of the year 2013 (darkroom)

* Winning image, professionally printed and framed

· £150 worth of product from www.HARMANexpress.com

The runner up in each category will receive £100 of product from www.HARMANexpress.com

Additionally, the college that submits the highest total number of eligible prints will receive £250 of product from www.HARMANexpress.com

The competition closes on 31st January 2014

Michelle Parr from HARMAN technology Education Liaison UK said, “We were thrilled to have such a positive response to last years competition so have followed the same recipe this year. We have a great relationship with a lot of college and universities throughout the UK and have used their comments and feedback to set the theme again this year.”
