Prom has been a milestone of the high school experience for generations. As time passes and culture changes so do the high schoolers in colorful dresses and ill-fitted tuxedos posing awkwardly in front of the camera.

We are looking to give prom a fresh new look!

Are you going with a date? A group of friends? We want to know how you plan to celebrate prom this year.


The brief:

We are looking for a female-identifying photographer currently in high school that is going to prom. We want you to give prom goers everywhere a fresh perspective on what the age old tradition looks like today.

You will be creating an intimate photo story following your peers and what you expect your/their prom experience to look like.

The photos will feature subjects styled in Topshop’s Prom 2018 collection, clothing provided by Topshop.

Paid opportunity
Must be U.S. based
- Shoot Date: First weekend of February
- Delivery: Early/Mid-February
