This year we've been pleased to supply our Kyoso photo awards software to the Royal Photographic Society - both for its annual International Photography Exhibition and for Science Photographer of the Year. The IPE is now closed and being judged, and today the Society announced the shortlist for SPoTY - as well as a free public exhibition this October.
In 2014 we were asked to build an online system, from the ground up, to sell and manage entries for the BJP's International Photography Awards - a prestigious competition where photographers around the world enter series of photographs in the hope of winning a gallery show in London and a place in the British Journal of Photography. By the time we closed it down, around 5,000 images had been received, and our server was feeling the strain.
We're now pleased to pass on the news that our former colleagues at Apptitude have now completed a rebrand, and are now known as 1854 Media - 1854 being the year the British Journal of Photography was first published. And we're equally happy to announce that MN Digital has assisted with the launch of the company's new website at 1854.media.
If you pass through a train station or shopping centre this month, there's a good chance you'll see something unusual on the screens that usually display advertising. Portrait of Britain, a collaboration between British Journal of Photography and JCDecaux, is showing 100 portraits on screens across the country - and we're proud to say that we were involved in the early stages of the project.
