Reminder: this is the final week to submit for the Radii Photo Contest: The Place We Live.

Submit up to three photos — individually or as a series — before June 30 to participate. China-based pictures only, please.

You can post your photos on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #RadiiPhoto, or email [email protected].


The Grand Prize winner will get a chance to meet award-winning photographer Chen Man — the “Annie Leibovitz of China,” who has shot celebrities from Rihanna to Victoria Beckham to Benedict Cumberbatch, and just about every A-list Chinese star — in her studio in either Beijing or Shanghai. Also, 800 RMB.

First Prize is an Olloclip Core Lens and Pivot Grip, plus a one-on-one mobile photography workshop with Singaporean photographer and documentary filmmaker Siok Siok Tan.

Five Second Prize winners will receive an autographed copy of Tan’s most recent photo book, Citybook, from which the pictures on this post are taken.
