I’m pleased to announce that the European photography TV talent show, Master of Photography, is back and applications are now open for photographers to apply to take part in its third series!
I thoroughly enjoyed watching season 2, where contestants competed in a series of photographic challenges in different countries to prove their creative and technical skills. The usual reality-TV format held true, where a panel of industry expert judges eliminated one contestant each week until there was a winner.
Here’s some scenes from the show on YouTube.
Making the application to become a contestant
You know what, I’m going to apply and maybe I’ll get my 15-minutes of fame. What’s the worst that can happen?
The following are the application criteria, as per the Master of Photography website:
Could you be the next Master of Photography?
We’re searching for the best photographer in Europe,
so if you’ve got talent behind the lens, this could be your shot.
Entry is open to amateurs and professionals
who are over 18 and hold a European passport.
Before filling in the form, please remember to have :
–a selection of your best photos (a minimum of five, a maximum of ten)
–a short video in which you introduce yourself in English (maximum 2 minutes)
The next few steps will take you through the entry process.
Well, I still haven’t put together the two minute-video, but I’ve shortlisted the following 10 images which I’ll consider submitting in support of my application – I’ll think about it a bit more. The premise is that I would like them to see the range of my photographic interests/skills, including…fine art, stock, editorial, architecture, nature, etc. Basically so they know I’m not just a one trick pony: Here’s some potentials:
When is the closing date?
You still have a month as the closing date is November 15th, 2017.
Wish me luck and also good luck to you if you do apply.
Here’s the link to apply once again.
I’m an eccentric guy on a quest to visit all corners of the world and capture stock images. I’m determined not to waste my life away as a corporate drone and have devoted five years to making it as a travel photographer and freelance writer. I hope to inspire others before it’s too late.
I’m proud to have written a book about my adventures which includes tips on making it as a stock travel photographer – Brutally Honest Guide to Microstock Photography
Check out my new photo review service, where I’ll help take your images to the next level and get them sold regularly!
Thanks! Hope they come up with a variation in Canada so you can apply :))
Good Luck !

Good luck. Do you know when they will tell you if you in? Or when the 3rd series airs?
They’re going through applications and should know in mid-January. I guess they’ll start shooting in the summer to air in Autumn 2018.
