New Photo Mission: People and Places

By Lucy - 4 min read

Huawei and EyeEm are joining forces – and it’s People And Places that we want to see!

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”
– photographer Paul Caponigro

Don’t underestimate the magnetic powers of portrait photography! Here at EyeEm, we believe that the best portraits are often the ones with context – the ones that show people in their happy places, their favorite environments. We’ve teamed up with Huawei for People and Places – and we’re giving away a Huawei P9, the mobile destined to reinvent smartphone photography!

Your Mission: People And Places is all about people striking poses in unique places. Whether it’s a city’s streets or the great outdoors, a family member or a complete stranger, capture yours to enter this Mission!

Tip: Variety is key! Experiment with different backgrounds and scenarios – smiling faces or an action shot, vibrant colors or black and white, an urban setting or a natural environment.

Your Reward: The photographer who best captures people in places will get a Huawei P9, the dual-lens smartphone co-engineered with Leica – ideal for urban portrait photography! Oh, and we’ll throw in an exclusive leather case too. The star photographer will also feature in an EyeEm image collection alongside a handful of runners up.

If you don’t get lucky this time, you can always pick up the phone at Huawei’s online store – vMall.

Deadline: October 4, 2016
