Fotolia is adding a new spin to its creative TEN project – splitting up ten artists into five artistic pairs (one photographer and one designer). Together, they will create an original digital artwork that depicts their vision of the future.
The first duo, photographer Eric Pare from Quebec, and designer Mike Campau of Michigan, will present the fruits of their collaborative labor, “Creating her own future”.
Starting on March 12, Fotolia is launching an international contest for designers and photographers, which will be launched on Facebook and accessible at www.tenbyfotolia.com.
Professionals and amateurs alike will have the chance to challenge all five TEN duos. Designers will be asked to present their interpretation of Campau’s design, and photographers will be asked to submit their best shots taken using Pare’s techniques, which will be explained in detail in the making-of video.
Participants have until March 31st to upload their entry to the Facebook page. Entries will be selected based on public votes, as well as a jury of experts. The winners will be announced on April 8th.
Followers can download the PSD file of “Creating her own future” complete with layers, effects, photographic meter settings, and more, as well as the Fotolia source files, free for 24 hours on Monday, March 10th, by going to www.tenbyfotolia.com.
Users can watch a free “making-of” tutorial video, as the artists share their techniques and creative processes. The photo used to create the image, as well as 10 other photos created during the shoot will also be available for sale on www.fotolia.com.
