If you think you’re the next Steven Klein or Mert and Marcus, then W magazine is ready to give you a chance. Starting tomorrow, the fashion magazine will accept submissions on their website for their first ever photography contest, “W: The Art Project.” The theme is obsession, so be prepared to fully consume your life with that one fixation you so love in order to submit the perfect picture.
From what we imagine will be a countless number of submissions, a panel of judges will pick only twenty, but the public is going to have the final say of just which photographer’s talent is high fashion magazine worthy. (AKA, beg and plead every person you’ve ever met to vote for you.) The prize for that one lucky winner not only includes a published moment in the glossy, but also a brand new camera and a three-month mentorship from art consultant Blair Voltz Clarke. Go quickly tell all your aspiring photographer friends. [NYMag.com]
