LONDON.- Saatchi Gallery and Huawei announced the judges for the #SaatchiSelfie competition are Tracey Emin, Idris Khan, Juergen Teller, Juno Calypso and Saatchi Gallery CEO Nigel Hurst.

The #SaatchiSelfie competition was launched on the 23rd January as part of the forthcoming From Selfie to Self-Expression exhibition opening at Saatchi Gallery on 30th March. The competition closes on Sunday 12th March when the judges will select a shortlist of ten from the thousands of selfies entered by the public. In addition to having their selfie showcased at the Saatchi Gallery the ten shortlisted winners will also receive Huawei’s new P10 smartphone, and the overall winner will receive an incredible photographic experience with a world-renowned Leica photography ambassador. The overall winner of the #SaatchiSelfie Competition will be announced at the show’s launch in London on 30th March 2017.

“To date we’ve received more than 8000 submissions from over 100 countries,” said Nigel Hurst, CEO, Saatchi Gallery “We have been enormously impressed with the way many of the entries have approached the creative challenge we set, and lived up to the spirit of the exhibition that their work will be part of. With one week left to go before the competition closes, I am confident we will continue to see even more beautiful and creative selfies.”

From Selfie to Self-Expression
Opening at the Saatchi Gallery on 31st March 2017, From Selfie to Self-Expression presented by Huawei will be the world’s first exhibition exploring the history of the selfie from the old masters to the present day, and will celebrate the truly creative potential of a form of expression often derided for its inanity. The show will also highlight the emerging role of the smartphone as an artistic medium for self-expression.

From Selfie to Self-Expression will showcase key artworks, many of which feature interactive, digital and user-generated content, by artists as diverse as Christopher Baker, Juno Calypso, Tracey Emin, Van Gogh, Mohau Modisakeng, Rembrandt, Cindy Sherman, Rafael Lozano-Hemmerand Velazquez. Showing alongside examples of many influential artists’ work will be selfies that have quickly become icons of the digital era – from the beautiful and sublime to the mad, bad and downright dangerous.

Huawei’s partnership with the Saatchi Gallery is a demonstration of its commitment to supporting creative expression through photography everywhere. It follows the launch last year of the game-changing Huawei P Series smartphones which reinvented smartphone photography with the world’s first dual-lens camera co-engineered with iconic camera brand Leica.
