Since the dawn of the digital age, the number of ways you can express yourself creatively has grown fervently. The art world has embraced a whole host of new mediums with open arms, including CGI, video games, and yes, even memes.
What the modern era has also done for young aspiring artists is made everything more convenient. With a smartphone, anyone can now instantly capture treasured memories at any given moment. To show its appreciation for this movement, OPPO announced a new program labeled the “See Beyond” Creators Awards.
OPPO, a leading smartphone brand, created this unique platform to inspire the new generation of photography enthusiasts all around the world. The platform sets the stage for users to create and discover the beauty of life wherever possible. Not only that, but the Creators Award exists to showcase the creative talent and visual storytelling of gifted individuals, and it intends to offer financial support, mentorship, and visibility as well. The best part is participants were able to submit their work using any smartphones (not just OPPO users).
All photos shared with OPPO are first reviewed by event staff. After that, the event committee selects 500 entries from the submission pool to be shortlisted. The shortlist is then curated and evaluated by a panel of renown judges in their respected fields to decide the final winners.
The winners are then given the opportunity to display their work at OPPO’s “See Beyond” Photographic Exhibition held in multiple cities around the world. From August 16 to 18, it’ll take place at the Bell Tower, Raffles City Changning in Shanghai, and finally at the Machinegebouw, Westergas in Amsterdam from August 30 to September 1.
If you get the chance, peruse the gallery supported by passionate creators and get to know the origin behind each photo.
