Entering the EUREKA AWARDS competition

Posted on April 17, 2012


Our work based learning requires us to submit our own work into a competition and for this I have chosen to enter one of my own pieces for the Eureka Competition.

To enter yourself, Click Here:


The Theme: Photographers may submit recent work relating to the themes of science, technology, engineering or the environment. Each entry must be accompanied by an explanation of no more than 100 words of how the work relates to the theme.

The Requirements:

  • Entries must be made by e-mail, to eurekaphoto@thetimes.co.uk
  • Images may be black and white or colour.
  • Still images must be uploaded as jpegs and files must not exceed 1280x1024px at 72dpi.

The Deadline: All entries must be submitted before 5pm on April 30, 2012. Late submissions will not be accepted.

The Shortlisted: Photographers who have been shortlisted will be notified by e-mail by May 8, 2012. The shortlisted images will be published on http://www.thetimes.co.uk and a selection of them will appear in Eureka magazine, as chosen by the Eureka picture editor, and in an exhibition at the Royal Institution from June 6, 2012 to June 19, 2012. The winners’ work will be published in Eureka magazine on June 7, 2012 and on http://www.thetimes.co.uk.

The Prize: The winners of the Single image award, the Project award and the Moving image award prizes of £1,000 chosen by the panel of judges will be announced at an awards night on June 6, 2012. The overall winner will win a commission to create a still or moving image special project for Eureka magazine.

My Submission: I have chosen to submit one of my own single still life photographs that I photographed within my ‘Still Life’ project.

This chosen photograph displays the incorporation of technology, that being shown through the light element of it and the juxtapostion between the old film basis of photography and the newer expirimental technique of light drawing.

Below is a screenshot of me entering the competition for further evidence that I have done so:

All that’s left to do now is to wait to hear back from them so until then, fingers crossed!
