Global youth photography competition!!!

The Shoot Nations 2010 exhibition will be opened at the UN in New York on International Youth Day where the winning photo will go on permanent display in a light box along with winners of previous years.

For those with limited access to cameras, computers and with poor bandwidth etc, there is the option to produce drawing to enter ‘The Best Overall Drawing Worldwide’.

Shoot Nations is an annual event. Together with Shoot Experience, sponsored by MTV, The Independent, National Geographic, Olympus, The Future Mapping Company we are looking to engage as many youth across the globe in this competition as possible.

The Shoot Nations 2010 exhibition will be opened at the UN in New York on International Youth Day where the winning photo will go on permanent display in a light box along with winners of previous years. We will also exhibit and run workshops across three continents in 2010/11. After the UN, the second confirmed venue for the exhibition is the Mayors Office/GLA in London.

A shortlist of the standout entries will be revealed on mtv.co.uk with users voting to select the Best Photo online via MTV’s website. The winner will receive an all expenses paid trip to New York for the launch of the Shoot Nations exhibition on 12 August at the United Nations Secretariat building. The first judge to confirm is Jenny Matthews and we have celebrity support on its way…

The theme for this years competition is urbanisation or ‘city living’.
