Here at Pop-Up, we believe that there is an abundance of creative talent in the city of Nottingham. As you know, our quest is simply to give that talent an opportunity to be seen by a much wider audience.
For this reason, we are inviting you to enter a photography competition exclusive to our fine city.
It could be a creative image, an image of something creative, perhaps something representing Nottingham’s creative history, or, our creative future. We challenge you to come up with photographs that will make us laugh, cry, listen, hop on a tram, start a conversation, or start a revolution.
Simply email your image to firstname.lastname@example.org and remember to include your name, telephone number and age.
We are announcing a photography prize for amateur and professional photographers alike. Entrants can share their work across social media #picturethisnotts; and the five finalists will have their work displayed on www.popupnottingham.co.uk.
The overall winner will also see their work transformed into something quite unique that will be showcased at a major exhibition event.
The competition is open to anyone over the age of 18 on the submission date who can take photographs!
You can only enter once, but you can submit up to three shots.
Midday Monday 12th March 2012.
In addition to having photos displayed to million of people online, there are some great prizes to be won.
Shortlist: A judging panel of 10 Pop Up Nottingham representatives from all disciplines will evaluate all submissions and will choose the five best submissions.
Finalists: The public will choose the winning image with an online vote.
Scores will be made up of the following criteria, each of equal weight:
There is no equipment restriction; mobile photos are very welcome. However, we would prefer submissions in JPG format.
There are also restrictions on size: Please ensure that any image sent is over 1MB in size and below 2MB. However please keep your originals as we might need these if you make the final shortlist
