Sony EricssonSony-Ericsson photo competition winner : Are you a budding photographer looking for your big chance to exhibit alongside some of the great creative minds of our time?

59 high profile names - spanning film, design, art, literature, music, fashion, science and politics and including Bloc Party, Peter Blake, Chapman Brothers, Alison Goldfrapp, Helena Christensen and Nathalie Press, have committed to produce images for a book and exhibition inspired by the theme of ‘Tomorrow’. All images will be taken using a Sony Ericsson K800i Cybershot phone. One lucky member of the public will be chosen to complete the final 60th image for the project. In addition, the winner will also receive a Sony Ericsson K800i Cybershot phone, a Bluetooth printer, a year’s membership at the ICA and a day with a professional photographer to learn tips from a master.

A judging panel comprising Ekow Eshun, Artistic Director of the ICA, John Harber, Managing Director of Sony Ericsson UK & Ireland and two of the 59 contributors will decide upon the all important 60th contribution from a member of the British public. To enter this unique project, images can simply be sent via mobile MMS. The competition goes live on 7 February and will be open until 2 March. John Harber, MD Sony Ericsson UK & Ireland said: “This competition offers a member of the public to become part of history while looking to the future for inspiration. “The Sony Ericsson K800i is one of the world’s most innovative and feature rich imaging phones, so our creative talent will be well equipped to successfully capture their visions of tomorrow.”

Sony-Ericsson photographic history
Matthew Gordon, 36, will join the likes of Peter Blake, Chapman Brothers, Alison Goldfrapp, Corrine Bailey Rae and Jon Snow after his picture was named the winning public entry in landmark project - All Tomorrow’s Pictures. The project, a collaboration between the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) and Sony Ericsson as part of the ICA’s 60th anniversary, made photographic history in February with the launch of a competition challenging members of the public to capture their vision of ‘tomorrow’ on their mobile phones. Matthew’s innovative shot entitled ‘Endless Possibilities’ won over judges with its perceptive comment on the future and will now feature alongside images from 59 high profile names - spanning film, design, art, literature, music, fashion, science and politics who also committed to produce images along the same theme using a Sony Ericsson K800i Cybershot phone.

All 60 images will go on display at an exhibition and be unveiled in a beautifully produced hardback book at a gala charity event, at London’s ICA in May 2007. The judging panel comprising Ekow Eshun, Artistic Director of the ICA, John Harber, Managing Director of Sony Ericsson UK & Ireland and contributors Alison Jackson (photographer) and Gordon Moakes (Bloc Party) had the challenging task of selecting a winning 60th image from the high standard of applications sent in. Alison Jackson said “Matthew’s image was a very strong, clever image and an incisive comment on technology, on the future and on the lines between infinity and claustrophobia.”

Gordon commented “This multi-layered image within a small enclosed space draws your eye around the scattered people but it’s difficult to know where it blurs into plain reflection. This is especially resonant in light of my time in Japan at the moment which in which there is little space and it’s overdeveloped. I like the theme of identity within it, what people will be in the future and a somewhat science fiction idea of cloning people as a workforce. As an image, it grabs you instantly, but there is much more to think about than the first look.” In second place the judges chose Khaleeda Kabani’s image ‘Her First Paycheck’ for its engaging narrative and strong social commentary. In third was Arthur Bixler’s haunting and macabre image ‘Untitled’.

Matthew’s prize also includes a Sony Ericsson K800i Cybershot phone, a Bluetooth printer, a year’s membership at the ICA and a day with a professional photographer to learn tips from a master. Both runners up will also receive a Sony Ericsson K800i. Matthew said, “I am absolutely thrilled to win this competition. I use my K800i cameraphone to take pictures of things I normally wouldn’t be able to with a conventional camera. “The picture in the lift ‘Endless Possibilities’ really captured a moment, a feeling of overcrowding, random individuals drawn together in a very small space. It really seemed like a glimpse into the future.”

Sony-Ericsson cameraphones
John Harber, MD Sony Ericsson UK & Ireland said: “This cameraphone competition has shown what a hotbed of photographic talent we have in the UK. Using a cameraphone, like the Sony Ericsson K800i means that you not only get fantastic image clarity, you can be spontaneous and take shots on the move.”
