New Photo Mission: Break the Mold

By Kayla - 6 min read

See your work center stage at TED@BCG Milan!

Mission:The world is moving at breakneck speed. These complex times require both wisdom and a bold embrace of diversity and difference to turn the unknown to one’s advantage. In this provocative mission, we invite you to capture moments of diversity as an exchange between the individual and its surrounding. Detach yourself from the result and try to do things you haven’t done before. Act as an observer and as part of the situation at the same time. This way your work will be diverse in its truest sense of the word. We encourage you to be inspired by conversations, flavors, colors, forms, art, people, materials, textures, light and situations to break the mold.

Prize: Winning images will be licensed by The Boston Consulting Group and exhibited as part of the stage design at TED@BCG Milan.

Deadline:May 5, 2017

How To Take Part:Photos tagged with Break the Mold will automatically be entered to the Mission. Include the tag as you submit a photo or add it to one you’ve already uploaded – just select Edit Photo then add the tag “Break the Mold”.
