Source Issue 5 – Call for submissions
Totality, on behalf of Source magazine, would like to invite photographers of any level to submit work/s for our Words X Images project where the chosen work will not only inspire a creative writer to write a short story, but also be published in Source issue 5 alongside the short story it inspired.
Five photos will be selected as the shortlist and sent out to writers to inspire a short story piece. Three overall winners will be chosen based on the best short story and photo collaboration, chosen by Totality. Each published winner (three photographers, three writers) will receive a £100 prize.
Source Magazine is a celebration of the lifestyle that can be enjoyed in and around north London’s Woodberry Down (Finsbury Park). For this reason the photographer must either reside in, or belong to a club located within the key boroughs (Haringey, Islington, Hackney); if not, the subject matter must be placeable within the key boroughs (eg. a recognisable landmark in the background)
Deadline for entry: 9am on 27th February 2017 (so get snapping!!)

Nikon Photo Contest International is open for entries!
The Nikon Photo Contest International has been held by Nikon Corporation since 1969 to provide an opportunity for photographers around the world to communicate and to enrich image-making culture for professionals and amateurs alike.
In the last 10 years, with the wide penetration of digital cameras with video capabilities, the environment surrounding image-making has dramatically changed. Adapting to this change, the 34th contest was reconceived, changing its name and its structure, and it continues to evolve to create new standards and provide new opportunities for discovery.
The Nikon Photo Contest nurtures an aspirational community that supports photographers and filmmakers who wish to share important stories and influence the way people think through images.
