August 22, 2013

Are you an aspiring photographer looking to showcase your creative flair?

Nokia, a global leader in mobile communications, has partnered with Talenthouse and Dazed & Confused to give 3 aspiring photographers the chance to join Nokia's official media team at the 2013Burton High Fives in New Zealand.

The aim is simple: to discover the best ‘urban city/street style’ themed photo captured in ‘low light’ conditions.

The 3 winning photographers will have a chance to join Nokia’s official photography team on a road trip in New Zealand - one of the most beautiful places on earth - and have their work featured in influential style magazine: Dazed & Confused.

Submit your photo which can be taken on any device making sure it expresses the creativity and mentality of the urban lifestyle through low light photography.

This could be fireworks, individuals with a real character, smoky gigs, moody street scenes, neon lights or wherever your imagination takes you.
Nokia, Dazed & Confused and reknowned photographer Tyrone Lebon will select 50 finalists to receive the new innovative Nokia Lumia 925 smartphone ‘trial’ devices.

These finalists will then be asked to upload their low light photos, captured on the Nokia Lumia 925, to their Talenthouse portfolios.
Low-light photos never looked this good. Award-winning PureView technology, Carl Zeiss optics and six physical lenses. The Nokia Lumia 925 lets you capture the great moments, day or night. #NokiaXBurtonNZ #Lumia925
