Our First Annual Amateur Photography Contest
We will have more info next week but…
This is the initial announcement for our 2003 Amateur Photography competition. We're not soliciting images yet but we're putting everyone on notice so they can begin shooting, assembling portfolios, etc.
We will provide details next week but in general terms, we will accept 4 jpeg images from everyone. We will then narrow down the field to a dozen finalists, whose work we will post to gallery pages on the site. We will then select grand prize winners though a reader poll and also through a team of industry professionals. Winners will have their work featured on the site and have an opportunity to shoot for Relix Magazine's Scene & Heard section.
IMPORTANT: we will only permit images taken at shows where photography is permitted. No shots from cameras brought in against band or venue policy.
Also, In terms of amateur status, we are permitting entries from anyone who has not yet received compensation for concert photography publication.
We'll have the official details about where to send your images very soon but until then feel free to look through your images and start thinking about your top 4.
