Inspired by the work of our long time contributor photographer Huang Ruide, TWOC has launched the “Most China” photo contest! We invite our readers and photographers from around the world, whether you pursue photography as a hobby or a career, to send us work that you feel showcases one of China’s extremes, or simply captures your own feeling of what best represents the country.
How to Participate
A submission can consist of a single photo or a series of up to five photos that tell a single story. Please title your photo or series, and indicate the month, year, and location where each photo was taken in the file name. Each entrant can make a maximum of two submissions, and each submission can consist of five photos maximum.
A panel of experienced text and visual editors and photographers will judge each submission on its originality, technique, storytelling ability, and interpretation of the contest’s theme. No submissions with political themes, please, or commercial work advertising a business or a product.
To submit, send your photos to email@example.com in high quality (maximum 10 MB) with your full name, phone number, email address or WeChat ID, and Instagram handle (if you want to be tagged). You may include an optional caption of up to 30 words for each photo as a separate attachment. Alternatively, upload your work onto Instagram, Google Drive, Flickr, Visura, or an online photo-sharing service of your choice, and send the URL to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your contact information.
All photos must be taken in China or an overseas Chinese community between 2017 and 2022. By submitting, you acknowledge that this is your original work and you have the right to distribute it. Should your work be selected as one of the winners, you grant TWOC the right to republish it on all its print, digital, and social media platforms. One winner and one runner-up each will be selected in the “China” and “Overseas” categories, and they will get their winning entries published in our magazine along with a cash prize (1,000 yuan for the winner, 500 yuan for the runner-up) and one year’s subscription to our print and digital magazine. The deadline for submission is July 31, 2022, and the results will be announced in September.
