Posted: 04-Oct-2005 [Source: Nokia]

[Nokia invites owners of megapixel camera phones to submit entries in competition to be judged by five internationally acclaimed photographers. ]

Espoo -- Internationally renowned photographer, Juergen Teller; leading American photographer, Philip-Lorca DiCorcia; award winning London-based photographer, Nick Waplington; Raghu Rai, one of India's most respected documentary photographers and Jiancheng Dong, a prominent landscape and documentary photographer from China are heading up the Nokia Nseries See New Competition which is launched today.

The competition lays down the challenge to aspiring photographers around the world to 'shoot new' - capturing something from a different angle or something never previously photographed - using a megapixel camera phone. To inspire people to enter, the stellar line-up of professional photographers have themselves been shooting new using the Nokia N90 advanced imaging device. More than 60 brand new images from these photographers can be viewed at www.seenew.com, Nokia Nseries' online community for mobile photography enthusiasts.

And the five photographers aren't just inspiring entrants with their images, they'll also be judging entries and offering a money can't buy prize: the chance to spend a day with them assisting on photoshoot.

"After pioneering the concept of mobile photography, we're now pioneering an exciting new photography challenge," said Pekka Rantala, Senior Vice President, Multimedia Marketing, Nokia. "The See New Competition is designed to encourage people to explore the possibilities of camera phone photography and uncover new photography talent from around the world. It's a unique competition both in terms of the caliber of professional photographers involved and by its global scale."

Commenting, Nick Waplington said: "Photography as a medium has developed to the point where it's around us, in all manners, at all times. Camera phones have played a big part in this, pushing the boundaries of when and how so there are many more opportunities to shoot new."

The competition is open to anyone over the age of 18 with a megapixel camera phone. Deadline for entries is 16 December 2005. Full terms and conditions can be found at www.seenew.com.
