Your laptop’s camera is your new work tool, the room on the other side your new studio, and FaceTime, Zoom, Hangouts or any other remote meeting app your new way of making a photoshoot happen. Sounds challenging?

Following the proverb “if the mountain won’t come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain” you could say “if the model doesn’t come to the photographer, the photographer must go to the model”, but in the current situation none of the cases is possible.

However, should that keep you from creating, collaborating, or photographing? As we ask ourselves the same question, our answer is “No. It shouldn’t.” — because honestly, nothing really should.

That’s why we challenge all of our members to participate in a fresh and stimulating photography competition!

We ask you to create amazing pictures from another space without leaving your own. Draft a concept, schedule a video call with models or friends, collaborate on styling the location, and ask them to pose for you while you capture those moments on camera.

See how Bella Hadid posed for Vogue Italia from her own home.

The most creative works and selected profiles will be showcased in a full piece on our blog and shared across all of our channels. The best four will then be awarded with a final cash prize of €1 000, €300, €200, and €100 respectively.

(NEW!) In addition, our partner Pixpa will give a free one-year subscription worth $108 of the Pixpa Pro plan to each of the 4 winners. Visit this page for more information about it.

The winners will be announced on our blog on the 2nd of June. The deadline for submissions is the 26th of May, at midnight CET. If you wish to apply, visit this page and submit your work.

The application process is easy, but it’s reserved to Cherrydeck members only. If you are not a member yet, you can apply to our network here.

We’re looking forward to seeing your creativity spark!

In addition, have a look at all of the open competitions on our blog or at our Opportunities page, here. In this blog post, we’ve also published external photography competitions you can apply to and profit from.

If you wish to support the United Nations in fighting the Coronavirus pandemic with your work, you can apply to their Global Call To Creatives, here. Stay safe! ?
