In addition to submitting to this Creative Invite HUAWEI encourages all artists to post their submissions on Instagram, using both hashtags #DONTSNAPSHOOT and #DE.

One artist, selected by HUAWEI and their guest judges, will receive €3,000 and a trip to London to extensively test the HUAWEI P9 photographic features. Two finalists will receive a HUAWEI P9 and €1,500 each.
A new era of smartphone-photography begins with the HUAWEI P9. In close collaboration with Leica, the revolutionary
dual-lense smartphone-camera has been developed, incorporating over a century of
