Another year has passed, which means one thing: the results of Morphoplio’s EyeTime 2015 contest finalists are in!

Last year’s competition was a proven success with work being submitted from a range of photographers around the world. It’s contests like these that give young emerging artists a platform to have their voice and perspectives heard. Today, there is an abundance of photos online being published every minute, but much of the work goes unseen or adds up to a mere number of “likes” on Instagram. Thankfully, Morpholio has granted students and young professionals have a chance to cut through the vast pool of online content for a chance to make a difference.

This year, the EyeTime contest was focosed on two categories: Future Voices and Emerging Talent.

The submissions were judged by a panel of many industry professionals, including some familiar names from last year’s competition such as Billy Cunningham of the International Center of Photography, Lin LeeYuan of MOLD, and Resource Magazine’s very own Alexandra Niki and Adam Sherwin. The finalists were selected based on how many views, or “EyeTime,” a photo received by the public. The more time people spent viewing the image, the better chance for that person to be considered. In addition to last year’s competition, Morpholio made it clear to continue to honor the life of photojournalist and humanitarian Jessica Lum, who tragically passed away in 2013.
