Getty Images challenges convention at Spikes Asia

The Spikes Asia Festival festival kicks off on September 23rd in Singapore and as part of its mission to move the world through imagery, Getty Images is inspiring Spikes delegates to look beyond stereotypical images when describing people and communicating concepts, inviting creatives to ‘re-picture’ visual representations of key concepts like success, beauty, age and family.

It has often been said that if we can visualize it, we can create it, including a better world. And we can - using pictures, platforms, and influential channels such as media and advertising to ignite important cultural shifts.

Spikes Asia #Repicture competition

To celebrate our involvement at Spikes Asia this year, we’re asking you to take part in our quest to re picture clichéd concepts through the power of pictures. Widen the visual representation of Beauty, blur the lines of Family and Community, and create a new vision of Success.

Help us challenge convention by sharing a personal image (a “Photo Entry”) that shows an authentic, empowering perspective on one of the concepts below or another concept of your own choice. Concepts:  Age, Balance, Beauty, Community, Expertise, Family, Father, Femininity, Hero, Innovation, Leadership, Love, Masculinity, Mother, Success, Team, and Wealth

Share your #RePicture Photo Entry on Twitter or Instagram using the #GettyContest hashtag to enter to win a USD200.00 gift voucher (code) from Photos.com. See more on how to enter the Competition and other details below.
