Leica x 1854 Commission Series
Witnesses of: The Everyday
This commission opportunity is now closed
Witnesses of: The Everyday is the first theme of the new Leica x 1854 Commission Series, a new collaboration by 1854 and the historic camera brand Leica.
Once a month from March – May 2021, one photographer will be awarded a £5000 commission fee to create their unique body of work centered around a new theme, and a place on the new and lucrative Leica Lab.
This commission is exclusive to 1854 Access Members.
We are all witness to moments of beauty – ones that emerge suddenly and pass fleetingly through our daily lives. But how do you capture them? And how do you make the ordinary, extraordinary?
In collaboration with 1854, Leica is offering photographers the chance to create new bodies of work using Leica’s industry-leading equipment. Introducing the first new theme in the Leica x 1854 Commission Series, Witnesses of: The Everyday.
The winner of the commission will secure a place on the new Leica Lab programme – one of the world’s leading online educational courses for developing photographers – along with a £5000 commission fee.
What do you have to say about the everyday?
Photographers are asked to submit 10 images and 100-word proposal for the consideration of the judges. Documentary proposals and more creative or interpretive approaches will all be considered.
