Create In Brighton is proud to announce the launch of a second competition entitled Hidden Depths. This is another fine collaboration with Tiger Beer and is a part of their Hidden Depths campaign that has already been taking place across London.
FIRST PRIZE IS £1000!
Earlier this year, Create In Brighton hosted its inaugural and very successful competition in association with Tiger Beer, calling for graphic designers, illustrators and photographers to enter with an answer to a brief. The winner, Matt C Stokes, won £1000 and was presented with his cheque at the Grand Final event at Coalition on Brighton’s seafront. Ghostpoet played a free live show afterwards and everyone had a thoroughly good time.
This second competition is Instagram based and anyone who is living, working or studying in Brighton & Hove can enter. For a chance to win £1000, people must upload an image to Instagram that they feel best represents the ‘Musical Hidden Depths of Brighton’.
The entry must be hash tagged #hiddendepthsbrighton to be counted.
The deadline for entries is 16.11.12.
Create In Brighton is on Instagram with the profile name ‘createinbrighton’.
Our judges are esteemed photographers Kevin Meredith (AKA Lomokev), and James Kendall, editor of Brighton Source Magazine. Both are talented photographers who also use Instagram regularly as well as having a thorough and longstanding knowledge of the city and its musical and cultural happenings and history.
Kevin Meredith (AKA Lomokev) is a Brighton based photographer and teacher of photography. He is prolific within the city and has published several, successful books. He has featured in a range of publications including National Geographic, Russian Esquire, and on the BBC news website and Rolling Stone.com. In 2006 he sat on the panel of judges for flickr.com’s “Blink of the Eye” photo competition in New York and judged again in 2008 for pixish.com’s “The SXSW Gallery Show” competition. http://lomokev.com/
James Kendall is owner and editor of Brighton’s best loved guide to the city, Brighton Source. James is often spotted about town, writing and photographing gigs, exhibitions, events, restaurants, clubs, you name it. He is an authority on what makes this town tick and knows its musical heritage and happenings like the back of his hand. Added to all this, he is a keen photographer and will be speaking at the Miniclick Photography Talks as part of Brighton Photo Fringe 2012 on 13th November. For one of his recent projects, he photographed his grandmother-in-law’s rather old tinned products from yesteryear, and caught the attention of The Guardian, who featured them in their G2 section, as well as the BBC and ITV. http://brightonsource.co.uk/
As part of the campaign, bottles of Tiger Beer will be available for only £2.50 in nearly all venues listed on Drink in Brighton until the end of November.
Once again, there will be another FREE live show taking place at a Grand Final at Coalitionwhere the finalists work will be on display, winners will be announced, prizes presented and a big name act will play an amazing show for the general public to attend.
