Chance to Turn Pro Being Offered by Disability Sport Photography Competition

Amateur snappers can turn pro by winning a new photography competition, with the challenge of depicting disability sports in a ground-breaking way.

The Momentum picture contest is a joint scheme by Channel 4; online photoblogging site, Blipfoto; and the BT-sponsored Paralympic World Cup, an annual international athletics event for the people with a disability.

The organisers are requesting images that “convey human movement, action and physical exertion in a unique or ground-breaking way”, though they needn’t be specifically about disability.

The winner, as nominated by the Blipfoto community and chosen by a panel of expert judges, will have their photos displayed on the Paralympic World Cup website and be considered for a role as a freelance photographer for Channel 4’s disability sports coverage team.

Anyone can get involved by uploading up to three photos to a Blipfoto account with a caption to describe each before the 10th of August.

The BT Paralympics is a yearly contest, held in Manchester, that sees teams of disabled athletes from all over the world compete at athletics, swimming, whelchair basketball and 7-a-side football.

Blipfoto is an online photojournal that encourages users to post a single photo per day.
