Your Photos at The School of Visual Arts: Overnight Success

By Severin - 3 min read

Take part in our latest Mission to get featured at the renowned art and design college in New York on October 27

How do photography experts curate differently than an algorithm? We’re teaming up with the MPS Digital Photography degree at New York’s renowned School of Visual Arts to find out.

The SVA team, consisting of faculty, staff and students, will review the submissions of the Overnight Success Mission and curate a selection of images. EyeEm Vision, our algorithm that applies an aesthetic score to images, will also curate a selection. The results will be published on the EyeEm blog and be presented at The School of Visual Arts in New York on October 27.

Ramzi Rizk, EyeEm’s co-founder and CTO, and Katrin Eismann, Chair of the MPS Digital Photography Department, will present the results as part of Rizk’s talk on Augmenting the Photographers’ Workflow with Artificial Intelligence.

To get an idea of what we’re talking about, check out this recent article on TIME:
Is This Computer Algorithm Better Than Photo Editors?

Mission: Stay up past bedtime and revel in the hours when everyone else is asleep. Explore the nocturnal wonder of your home, city or landscape. Snap the peace and quiet that can only be experienced after the fall of darkness. Get photographing between dusk and dawn to enter Overnight Success!

Prize: The top 5 photos from this Mission will be reviewed by photography experts from New York’s School Of Visual Arts. They’ll also be shared in an EyeEm image collection and across our social media channels.

Deadline: October 19, 2016

How To Take Part: Add the tag Overnight Success to a new photo or go back and add it to one you’ve uploaded before.
