You may not be aware of the TV program Master of Photography, it is on the Sky channel. I have only seen one episode so cannot really comment about it much but it is a sort of reality tv contest like so many others but based on photography rather than food. So they are looking for people to apply for a second series, I received this email:
We are producing the second season of Sky Arts Master of Photography, the first European TV talent contest open both to professional and amateur photographers.
We would like to inform you that the online casting session for the Sky Arts Master of Photography is open.
The competition has been created by the Sky Arts Production Hub, a commissioning and production centre of excellence dedicated to creating quality arts programmes for Sky’s 21 million customers across the UK and Ireland, Italy, Germany and Austria.
