Get your submissions in now for DIY photo exhibition

14 November 2014

Next week submission close for a local guerilla photography exhibition offering photographers of all stripes the chance to have work displayed in a unique show.

Privateering Light is a photographic event conceived by the students of the Southern Institute of Technology’s photography course to give any photographer, designer or creative the chance to exhibit work to be ‘stolen’ by those who attend the show in Queenstown on November 22.

The emphasis is on lo-fi, cheap accessibility, so photographers are encouraged to print up to three images as affordably as possible – think crudely photocopied zines sneakily produced on  the workplace copier – on A3 paper and send them to:

Privateering Light
67 Erskine Street
Lake Hayes Estate
Queenstown 9304
New Zealand

Each print should also have a message written on the back, along with your name, website and email address. They must be received by November 21.

The images will be plastered to the wall for the exhibition night, and those attending the opening are welcome to rip their favourite down to take home with them at the end of the night – after all images have been judged, of course.

We at D-Photo love the inclusive vibe of the Privateering Light event and have donated a one-year subscription to the prize pool, so get your entries in now for a chance to win that along with a bounty of other goodies.

If you would like to attend the show on November 22 at Remarkables Primary School Hall you must register here – there is also a pre-event field trip and post-event function being organised.
