Klinko & Idrani 2010 Student Photo Competition

Bron Imaging Group has partnered with the iconic photographic team of Markus Klinko and Indrani.

The Bron Imaging Group bi-annual BIG ED photographic contest will be hosted by the power couple this spring. The theme of the contest is an intimate portrait of the girl or boy next door. The image could be a brief glimpse of an intimate moment, something that plays on the voyeuristic. Possibly the image could be something more Rockwellian centered around a boy scout troop or a combination of the two, remember it is M&I…

The competition will run from February 1st to July 1st. Markus Klinko and Indrani will select the winners, along with a hand picked panel of stylists and magazine editors.
