Huawei NEXT-IMAGE Awards is back this year

Now on its third year, the Huawei NEXT-IMAGE Awards 2020 has been officially launched in the world and the technology giant is once again extending its invitation to Filipino smartphone photography and videography enthusiasts. Through this content, Huawei is encouraging participants to showcase their most "uplifting and inspirational" images.

Huawei shared that last year alone, there were more than 520,000 entries submitted and a good number of those were from Filipinos which many ended up winning runner-up awards.

According to the company, this NEXT-IMAGE Awards 2020 is open to all Huawei and Honor smartphone users. The contest will offer amateur smartphone photographers and visual storytellers who share their uplifting images more than 70 chances to win cash prizes up to $10,000 including a brand new Huawei P40 Pro with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage.


There are a total of 6 categories in which participants can join, and those are the following.
  • Near Far: Uncover life's hidden gems whether they are close-up or at a distance using the telephoto, wide-angle, or macro shooting features on the phone's camera.
  • Good Night: Moody or mysterious, make the most out of shadowy settings through captivating low light photography.
  • Hello, Life: Share the magic and inspiration found in everyday life, a thousand words encapsulated in a single picture.
  • Faces: Use portrait photography to frame the human expressions in the most creative of ways.
  • Live Moments: For up to 10 minutes, shoot a mini movie that highlights a positive story yearning to be shared.
  • Storyteller: In 3 to 9 images, convey a narrative, an emotional journey, a profound change - whatever life around us is bursting to be told.
