The past couple of years have seen technological advances that have equipped photographers with brand new tools with which to capture, and present their stories to the World.
To recognise this The PPY created this category in the 2010 awards to allow photographers to showcase their mastery of this emerging strand of our industry.
In Digital Film you can enter up to 3 'journalistic' films where the entrant captured the content during the qualifying period.
This is to be uploaded in the form of a web link to the location of where the piece is hosted, eg: Vimeo, YouTube or even a personal website.
Each film will be narrative driven but should also demonstrate a visual aesthetic firmly routed in photography.
They are likely to (but not restricted to) utilise the new breed of Digital SLR cameras that have an HD video capture facility; such as the EOS 5D Mark II, but could contain some elements of still images, graphics and captioning as well as sound, voice over or commentary. Technical merit will be carefully considered.
The only restrictions are for it to be self-advancing (i.e: once started, it will play to the end without the viewer needing to use navigation) and have a maximum running time of 15 minutes.
If the piece is a collaboration please make sure that the appropriate credits are supplied with the links.
