New Photo Mission: Youth Of Today

By Lucy - 3 min read

Let’s empower the next generation and champion 21st century kids!

Today’s young people will be tomorrow’s artists, tomorrow’s leaders and influencers – but the media sure does give them a hard time. Let’s cut them some slack and give them the credit they deserve! That’s the focus of this Youth Of Today Mission.

We’ve teamed up with the guys behind The Phoblographer to showcase the life and strife of being a postmillennial child. The photographer who best captures the Youth Of Today will be interviewed and have their work featured both on The Phoblographer and on the EyeEm Blog. What are you waiting for?
