The inaugural Heavy Music Awards will take place at House of Vans London on Thursday 24 August 2017, with attendees from across the industry coming together to celebrate the best in heavy music.
Our Best Photographer category – sponsored by Olympus – saw an incredible 170+ photographers nominated by our judging panel, but we know there is even more young talent waiting to be discovered.
To underline the HMAs’ commitment to shining a spotlight on talent in disciplines beyond just performing music, we are excited to announce the HMA17 Young Photographer Competition, giving one young photographer the chance to build their portfolio by shooting on our red carpet, during the awards presentation and live performances.
How the HMA17 Young Photographer Competition Works
Entry to the competition is open to any amateur photographer aged 18-21. Due to the venue being 18+, we are unable to accept entries from anyone younger than 18.
To enter, send an email to [email protected] containing the following:
- One photo you have taken of a band playing live – photos must be over 1200px wide, and less than 2mb in size
- Your name
- Your date of birth
- The name of the band performing, the venue and the date it was taken
The closing date for entries is 5pm on Friday 21 July 2017. The HMAs team will then select the top entries and post a gallery on the Heavy Music Awards Facebook page. The image with the most Facebook likes by 5pm on Monday 31 July will be crowned winner – and that photographer will get the chance to come to the Heavy Music Awards (with a guest), and mix it with a host of professional photographers.
