New Photo Mission: Pivotal Ideas

By Lucy - 4 min read

We’re looking for unique perspectives and composition in this new Mission with BCG

Think about the structures that evoke awe: the technology that gets you, theskyscrapers that make you look up, the organizations that suddenly make the worlda better place. When you see them, and witness their power, it’s hard to imaginethem before they reached their present state. But each of these brilliant structuresstarted as an idea. Each revolution began as a flash of inspiration. Or a question youare implored to ask.

For your next mission, we are looking for images that represent the Pivotal Ideasthat precede action. The ones that spark a revolution. The questions you ask, the beliefs you transcend, and the boundaries you push, to build the structures of tomorrow. The Boston Consulting Group(BCG) is sourcing innovative and cutting-edge imagery for the BCG HendersonInstitute. Learn more about EyeEm’s partnership with BCG here.
