Grand photo competition

« Born to be better! Until 25 November 2019 »

Want to enter the competition?

Here's a photo contest to reveal your augmented reality! The aim? A positive interpretation of technological progress that must place Europeans at heart of your image. We want you to show us a potential new individual : organisation, leisure, simplification, efficiency, time-saving tricks, etc. Up to you to unearth situations that illustrate your aim in the best way possible. Going beyond the "enriched me" ambiance, also show individual engagement and their new freedom that flows from a positive input of technologies when each person takes up their part in the bigger responsibilities that underline a reasonable usage of technologies!

An exceptional jury consisting of Karol Palka (photographer) shall reunite to select the most beautiful images. Moreover, the ones that win the most votes shall be placed on the podium of the internet users.

Next Wipplay

Human Inside

The technological progress does not have any meaning if it hasn’t been used to aide humans and their environment. This philosophy of the company Orange - called HUMAN INSIDE - is broken down to three creative worlds that we ask you to illustrate for our photography contests :

Next Wipplay

Promoting photography

In the past 3 years, the group Orange has established a close tie-up with Wipplay, a start-up dedicated to popular, talented and spontaneous photography. For Orange, a company that discovers, supports and promotes the most promising start-ups, to be associated with Wipplay was but natural to incarnate the desire to advance the world that surrounds them.

The platform gives rise to occasions where one can show their talents, by calling for photographic contributions on a weekly basis, open to one and all : budding photographers, established or professionals.

Wipplay engages in taking over and inspiring its own community with original themes for photography contests. With a “large depth of field”, the Wipplay team nourishes the creativity of more than 60 000 contributors and awakens new prodigies each day. Popular photography is fully realised here.
