FROM THE PIT 2020 – PART 2 – Deadline is 19 APRIL 2020 (note deadline extended due to the Covid-19 lock down)
Part 2 of the exhibition will run during the second half of May at Flying Out records.
We are looking for images of New Zealand musical legends and people who are (or were) known internationally. They need to be New Zealand musicians (or associated with NZ even if they weren’t actually born here) and be pictured performing on stage.
So get digging through your archives!
Images can be from any time period (recent or ancient) – scanned film is fine! As long as they are big enough to print A3 size, we’re happy.
Send us UP TO 5 IMAGES. If you send us more than 5 images we’ll only look at the five you’ve listed on the entry form.
We’ll then look at all the entries and work out what we can use in the exhibition
Deadline for entries is 19th April 2020
Entry form is here (you must complete this before sending any images): https://forms.gle/tyByuiyt8rGfLb9A6
Once you have completed the entry form, send your images via dropbox/google drive folder or wetransfer.com etc to [email protected]
FROM THE PIT 2020 – PART 1 (CLOSED)
NOTE – SUBMISSIONS FOR PART 1 ARE NOW CLOSED
Following last year’s highly successful exhibition we are going to be running the exhibition again during New Zealand Music Month (May 2020) – From The Pit 2020. Just like last time, it will be a printed exhibition hanging in Auckland with an accompanying audio visual version. We’re hoping we might also have some prints on display outside of Auckland – let us know if you can help with this!
The number of images in the exhibition will be determined by the venue space (to be announced later).
The exhibition is open to submissions from photographers who regularly shoot live music in New Zealand. We are looking for photographs of New Zealand artists playing in New Zealand, taken anytime since January 2019. We want the exhibition to be fresh and relevant.
We launched the exhibition at the Taite Music Prize last year, so we’re especially interested in Taite winners and shortlisted artists!
If your image is chosen to be in the exhibition you’ll need to pay for the printing but you’ll get to keep print after the exhibition. They are a thing of beauty!
Last year we were able to give a small rebate to each photographer thanks to one of our excellent sponsors to help offset the cost of printing. Some photographers donated their rebate to our official charity, but this was not expected!
We need 3-5 images from you by 31st January 2020. These need to be sized big enough to print A3 so we can check quality for printing.
