Art Of London and Fujifilm launched their partnership with a photography masterclass and tour of their ‘Brighter Future’ installations in London’s West End with Fujifilm photographer Mr Whisper.

To celebrate their partnership Fujifilm and Art Of London are hosting a photography competition inviting participants to take their own photos of the ‘Brighter Future’ art trail.
Entrants are invited to submit a photograph to the Art of London Instagram account with #ArtofLondonxFujifilm, showcasing a photograph that captures these special sculptures. To ensure entry entrants must tag Fujifilm, Mr Whisper and Art of London. The competition closes on Tuesday 4th October, 2022.
Bal Bhatla, known as Mr Whisper who led the masterclass, commented:
“Today’s tour around the ‘Brighter Future’ installations in London’s West End was a great way to launch the photography competition between Fujifilm and Art of London. We had great fun visiting the fascinating installations from curators such as Harry Hill and Zarah Hussain. I hope I managed to pass on some useful tips to those lucky enough to join me on our tour of the West End.”
Theo Georghiades, General Manager, Fujifilm added:
“We are excited to be partnering with Art of London and their ‘Brighter Future’ installations. We hope our photography competition will inspire visitors to the West End this September. The top 10 images will feature in our digital exhibition and the overall winner will receive the recently launched instax mini Evo hybrid instant camera and printer as a prize. This exciting new addition to the Fujifilm range offers 100 different combinations for photographers to express themselves and create one- off, unique shots.”
