Jury Quotes

"Wonderful Photographs"
- Billy Cunningham, ICP

"It was such a pleasure to view the work of talented, fresh photographers. There was such a vast array of styles and creative techniques employed in the finalists' images. That diversity is reflected amongst the winners: we have the surreal work of the Emerging Talent winners and we have a mix of landscapes and documentary-style photography of the Future Voices winners."
- Jessica Lum, PetaPixel

"Using the Morpholio app was also an interesting experience. Photography can be so subjective, but EyeTime is an interesting way to track viewers' habits and behaviors when looking at an image. In a way, it almost quantifies subjectivity."
- Jessica Lum, PetaPixel

"It was inspiring to review."
- Aurelie Jezequel, Editor-in-Chief of Resource

November 2nd, 2012
Please note due to the impacts of Hurricane Sandy, the second phase of competition has been temporarily postponed. More info to follow soon.

All the best,
The Eyetime Competition Team

October 1st, 2012
Dear EyeTime entrants,

Thank you for submitting your photography and we are thrilled to see the overwhelming response as well as the spectacular work.

Starting today, the public viewing for finalist selection begins. Finalists will be selected on a complex formula of special competition EyeTime data. Including but not limited to EyeTime viewing, EyeTime hits, EyeTime zooms and more. This EyeTime comes from those you invited, as well as public viewing on the Morpholio community.

Please see the following important notes:
  1. Yes... Entrants are permitted to Facebook, Tweet, email, post, etc... their entry to as many people as they want, but the viewing for EyeTime needs to be in the Morpholio app to accumulate the various forms of EyeTime.
  2. Please note as the EyeTime number you see reflects the full EyeTime for that image, it will NOT reflect the official competition EyeTime.
  3. Self EyeTime will not count and excessive viewing time from a single source will be automatically flagged, limited and evaluated.
  4. Always visit the EyeTime competition Page or Morpholio Facebook for the most recent news and updates.
  5. Both competition buckets at Morpholio rotate all content every 5 minutes to give all participants equal exposure through Morpholio Community.
  6. To directly find a person or a collection, go to Pinup and search for names and titles.
Good luck to all.

The EyeTime Competition Team

Call for Submissions (Closed)

EyeTime 2012 invites students and young professionals or enthusiasts to submit a collection of their photography comprised of up to three digital images. By submitting your work, we invite you to share your voice with the collective intelligence of a community of visual thinkers. The competition is free to all entrants.

The proliferation of device culture, social networking, and cloud technology are changing the way we create, and connect on a daily basis. For photography, this means that technology is not only transforming the process of production, but also the processes through which we share, critique, and organize ourselves around the work we do. The competition is first, and foremost an experiment in distributed intelligence. By leveraging the "wisdom of crowds" every entrant can see and understand how his or her work is experienced by others. It has been predicted that in 2020, there will be 50 billion mobile internet connections worldwide, the equivalent of seven devices per person. Thus, this competition is not simply about the existence of technology, but rather why and how we harness it as artists.

As the paradigm shift from analog to digital is paired with the emergence of platforms for the digital consumption of images, photography inherently reassess its methods, media and subjects, in order to establish a dialogue with an audience whose visual abilities are increasingly expanded by technology. Thus, this competition challenges you to confront the world with your photography. By sending it out into the field you will test yourself and your work. You are the artist, the curator and the critic. EyeTime 2012 poses the following questions: How are your photos perceived? What does it take for an image to make a difference within the continuous overflow of data and information we currently inhabit? How can images impact evolving forms of media in order to engage audiences with their message? What is your message?

Eyetime 2012 was assembled by photographers, professors and students as a means to publically promote the research, exploration and investigation currently happening amongst today's emerging talent. The competition is supported by the ICP (International Center of Photography), APA (American Photographic Artist), ADC (Art Directors Club), and is hosted by The Morpholio Project. The guest jury includes participants from Wired magazine, Wallpaper magazine, PetaPixel, Resource magazine and the ICP. Sixteen finalists will be selected in each category: Emerging Talent and Future Voices. We look forward to your participation.


Category 01: Emerging Talent (students only)
Emerging Talent aims to discover upcoming photography voices within academia. The submitted images (digital photographs) can be in any order, and of any subject that represents the thoughts, explorations and ideas of the applicant.

Category 02: Future Voices (young professionals or enthusiasts)
Future Voices is oriented to all young photography enthusiasts and professionals 35 years of age and under. The submitted images (digital photographs) can be in any order, and of any subject that represents the thoughts, explorations and ideas of the applicant.


EyeTime Jury:
EyeTime captures and records the amount and type of viewing time an image receives. For every second an image or a collection is viewed by others the entrant will accumulate various types of EyeTime. The EyeTime jury (users contributing EyeTime) will be made up of the general public searching for collections and the up to 15 people you invite.

Please note:

Guest Jury:
The guest Jury will select a Winner(s) from the EyeTime finalists.
