New Photo Mission: South

By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

We’ve teamed up with travel lifestyle magazine Hayo to explore every interpretation of the concept “South”!

Photographers are curious people – interested in their surroundings, intrigued by people and always chasing the next killer shot. It’s only natural then, that many photographers have a serious case of wanderlust and are constantly looking for their next adventure.

With that in mind, we’ve teamed up with Hayo. Hayo is a lifestyle magazine for travellers and are just about to publish their very first print edition – so no heavy filters please! In this premier edition, they are inviting artists, writers and photographers to explore the theme of South – whether that’s a location, a concept or a state of mind. So grab your cameras as we explore what “South” means to you!

Your Mission: What says south to you? Is it a location, a state of mind, a direction or a lifestyle? From delicious styles of cooking through to impressive landmarks and locations – we encourage you to get creative and really explore this theme! Tag your photo “South” to take part.

Your Reward: The five best images which best capture an interpretation of “South” will be featured in Hayo’s first print issue, with full credits. Photographers will also win a copy of the magazine. The top twenty images will be featured in an online EyeEm Image Collection.

Deadline: May 9, 2015
