Y2i Photography Project
Y2i Photography Project
ENTRIES FOR THE 2018/19 COMPETITION HAVE NOW CLOSED.
What is the Photography Project?
The Photography project is a competition organised by Y2i in conjunction with UIA, enabling students to submit their own photos from their Year 10 Israel Programs. Students can win up to $1000 towards post-high school travel to Israel and a portable speaker.
How does it work?
Students can pick up to 5 photographs to submit via the online portal on this webpage. These photographs need to be accompanied by a caption describing the moment.
We will then collate the submissions and create a shortlist of photos, Y2i Facebook and Instagram followers will have the opportunity to vote. Those shortlisted will have their work exhibited at our Donor function in March where we will announce the winners!
In order to participate in the Photography project, students need to have participated in a Y2i approved year 10 Israel program in 2018/2019.
The idea is that the photos capture the experiences you are having in Israel particularly capturing people. Along with the photo, submission students need to identify the image and write up to 100 words about the moment being captured.
It can be significant for the photographer, the people they are capturing or for the group in general.
Winner Selection Process
The finalists will have their photos exhibited at our Donor function on the 10th of March and will be invited to attend the event to share their experiences.
Second prize: Will be determined by Y2i’s online voters through social media. Prizes include a $500 voucher towards post-high school Israel travel and a portable speaker.
First prize: Will be determined by our panel of judges and the winner will receive $1000 towards post-high school Israel travel and a portable speaker.
Examples of Photo entry Style
We have provided images from last years Photography project (in the banner at the top of the page) to provide some examples of images we are looking for. You are not limited to these areas but they may help you consider what types of images you want to submit.
We would also love for you to specifically display people on the Israel program within your images.
You may also use or social media pages to find inspiration:
We are looking for images displaying people experiencing Israel in many different situations. These can include food, culture, religion, landscape and many more aspects of what Israel has to offer. Please tag Y2i on any photos that you post whilst on your trip.
