We’re teaming up with Canon and the Gibson Hotel to find the best amateur MOtographer in the country.

Movember Canon Photo Competition

With Mo’s everywhere It’s time to get creative. We’ve teamed up with Canon and Picturk to bring you the inaugural Motography Challenge – see what we did there! We’re looking for the best photos across three categories that sum up what Movember 2012 is all about, the passing of knowledge and awareness. The best snaps, as deemed by our panel of esteemed judges, will receive a Canon EOS 1100D. The camera. delivers beautiful photos and video and comes with the Essential Photographer's kit that Canon is giving away with DSLR cameras this Christmas in camera stores nationwide. We also have an amazing runner-up prize from the Gibson Hotel in Dublin of two nights B&B with dinner on one night as well as some spot prizes of Mo goodies for pictures that give us a tickle!

The categories are:

Looks like a Mo
Everyday objects that look like they’ve really gotten into the swing of Movember. Go crazy and be as creative as you want – we’re looking for originality and creativity. Feel free to rock out any technique and trick you can to create impactful and interesting images.

Moustachtic Moments
Building on this year’s theme Movember & Son and the transfer of knowledge – Send us a portrait of two people that captures the passing if wisdom; not just through generations, it can be teachers and students, coaches and players or even your boss and a colleague… presuming your boss is wise! Again, Judges will be looking for creativity and the essence of knowledge. Seriously, we’re looking for photo’s that capture expression, personality, and mood.

The Mo
We’re looking for great portraits of the hairy-lipped that are making it happen this Movember. We’re looking for photos that capture expression, personality and mood, and images that have impact, originality and, dare we say it again, creativity!
