We Challenged Our Photo Editors To Create Visual Stories

By Cherrie - 5 min read

Here’s how EyeEm’s Xavier, Brada, Jonny and Madeline fared.

The curation team at EyeEm are capable of remarkable things. They’re helping picture editors and publishers around the world communicate visual narratives, day in day out. With thousands of editorial photos available to license on EyeEm Market, we set them a challenge.

Xavier, Brada, Jonny and Madeline were asked to tell a visual story using only five photos. The photos had to be available on EyeEm Market and licensable for editorial purposes – that being newspaper and magazine articles, for descriptive purposes on blogs, websites and in non-commercial presentations.

Here’s how they got on.

Curated by Brada: “Traditional Mongol wresting is an important part of Mongolian culture – and Claudia’s images offer a real insight into this, allowing us to discover the world through all its local peculiarities. Not only that, but her profile is consistent and these images tell a real story.”

Curated by Jonathon: “The UEFA Euro 2016 tournament kicks off on June 10th and I wanted to illustrate how we can use editorial sports content to capture the emotion within the game. The Euros will be accompanied by massive sponsorship deals, big brand logos and an array of huge profiles to grace the pitch.”

Curated by Madeline: “Fashion stories are in high demand from publishers. I pulled these photos together to show just how well EyeEm Community members capture on-trend content, covering the needs of even the most rigorous fashion editors.”
