Winners of the NME Music Photography Awards with Nikon 2013 are to have their photographs displayed at an exhibition held at The Printspace in London, opening later this month.
Internationally famous music brand NME and camera manufacturer Nikon will host a guest-list only, private viewing of winning photography on 23rd October, which will be attended by the great and the good of the music industry. Winners will see their artwork displayed alongside a collection from Pieter M.Van Hattem, winner of the Outstanding Contribution to Music Photography award, who will also be attending the event.
Following the private viewing, the exhibition will be opened to the public and free to attend, running from 24th October – 6th November 2013.
Now in its fourth year, the NME Music Photography Awards with Nikon aims to find the most stunning and original music imagery from both amateur and professional photographers.
Images shot by amateurs were accepted in categories including live, portrait, documentary, festivals and under-18s for the chance to win a Nikon 1 J3 camera worth over £500, while professionals competed for the Photographer of the Year award to win a Nikon D600 kit worth over £2200!
NME editor Mike Williams adds: "Every year NME is proud to launch the NME and Nikon Music Photography Awards. It's an incredibly important competition to us, allowing us to seek out fresh photography talent and celebrate some of our most iconic shoots from NME's past. The standard of entrants continues to improve every year and this event provides new blood with a phenomenal platform to showcase their work. The exposure has allowed past winners to go on to achieve brilliant things, including shooting professionally for NME. We’re really looking forward to seeing the winning photography on display!"
Jeremy Gilbert, group marketing manager at Nikon UK Ltd, adds: "The partnership with NME has gone from strength to strength over the last few years – we really value the competition as an excellent platform to showcase the work of both undiscovered and established music photographers."
