Over the years, we have been proud to sponsor many worthy charities including Teenage Cancer Trust, Dallaglio Foundation and Macmillan. In 2017 we increased our commitment to creative talent by establishing the JJ Foundation.
Our aim? To inspire, support and motivate young photographers and filmmakers in the pursuit of their creative goals and careers.
As part of JJ Foundation, we are running a photography competition for young people and have some incredible prizes up for grabs, from free studio hire to a DSLR.
No competition is complete without a knowledgeable and talented judging panel and it’s with that that we are thrilled to announce our lineup for the JJ Foundation Photography Competition 2017. Joining Johnny Jones (JJ Media Chairman & Co-Founder) on the panel will be Rick Truscott, Rob and Nicky Carter and Nick Turpin.
(represented by LGA) is a fashion/beauty photography and filmmaker who shoots regularly around the world for many of JJ’s clients.
Rob and Nicky Carter
are an art/photography duo who blur the boundaries of their photography, paintings, light installations and film. In fact, we have pieces of theirs in Studio, ‘ZONE’! Their work is held in permanent collections at the V&A, London and the Museum of Neon Art, Los Angeles. Collectors include Sir Elton John and The Beckhams.
was the founder of the international street photographers group http://in-public.com/
and in 2010 he established Nick Turpin Publishing. Nick has also taught and lectured on contemporary street photography at Museums, Universities and on TV. He has had numerous worldwide exhibitions including Tate Britain & Museum of London and published 4 books: Street Photography Now, 10 years of in-public, London Street Photography 1860-2010, On The Night Bus,
Also a photographer, he recently completed a series of portraits entitled ‘Shoot the Owner.’ He sought to capture a selection of our unique and individual photographic and film locations and their owners. Very rarely seen in front of the camera, the creators of these inspirational locations were photographed in their homes, styled in their own inimitable way. Johnny has created a wonderful selection of 90 photographic prints capturing each owner’s unique and wonderful character, whilst cleverly depicting how their homes are a reflection and an extension of themselves. https://www.instagram.com/johnnyjonesjj/

Submission closing date: 30th of November
