The One Life Photo contest ("Contest") is open to international artists, who are 13 years of age or older as of the date of entry. All entries which are prohibited by applicable law shall be deemed to be void. One Life Photo ("One Life Photo") reserves the right to verify all eligibility requirements. Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. Employees and their immediate families (defined as spouses, parents, siblings, children, grandparents and in-laws) and any members of their households employed by One Life Photo or any of its affiliates, parent corporations, subsidiaries, advertising and promotion agencies are not eligible to participate. Minors under the age of 18 may enter online by providing their parent or legal guardian's e-mail address. One Life Photo will notify parent or legal guardian when their child has entered a contest at www.onelifephotos.com. Parent or legal guardian will have seven (7) days to object by e-mail to their child's entry. If a parent or legal guardian sends an email stating their objection within seven (7) days of being notified by One Life Photo, such child's entry and information will be deleted. Minors under the age of 18 who are selected as a potential winner will also be required to provide One Life Photo with a parental permission form, which will be sent to the parent/legal guardian's email address of potential winners under the age of 18. The form must include a parent's or legal guardian's approval signature and be returned by mail or by fax to an address and fax number provided on the form within seven (7) days from the date of notice in order to be eligible to receive a prize. Any minor who does not provide this parental permission form within seven (7) days will forfeit his or her right to be declared a winner and/or win a prize, and an alternate winner will be selected.
How do I submit work?
One Life only accepts submissions through our quick and easy online form. All applicants will receive a gorgeous online portfolio and will be eligible for the Story Award (does not affect the selection of the Grand Prize winner). Portfolios are fully editable (you can change/add images and modify your bio) until the deadline.
The Basic entry is $29, and the Professional entry is $69. The Basic Entry makes you eligible for the Story Award; The Professional entry makes you eligible for all of those awards, plus the Grand Prize award.
Every photographer who submits to One Life will be given an online See.Me portfolio to view and share with your social network and use as a professional resource. After you complete your submission, you will be sent a confirmation email with your username, password, and direct link to your portfolio, which you will be able to start using immediately.
The Story Award:
The Story Award award focuses on the story you tell (more so than the technical aspects of your photography). Viewers will collect their favorite photographers and help decide who will win the Story Award, so share your portfolio with friends, family and colleagues using e-mail, Facebook, Twitter and other social networking tools, and get your fan club to collect your works today! The highest collected artists will have their submissions reviewed by Artists Wanted to determine the Story Award winner, who will win $7,500 in cash or a trip around the world plus a feature presentation on the new See.Me (formerly ArtistsWanted.org), a feature in the One Life Photography Annual Catalogue.
