Olympus support dedicated student digital photography competition - Competition aimed at emerging young British talent
The competition, now in its second year, runs until October 17th 2003 and invites all students to submit a digital image that captures the question, Can You See Sound?. The winner will win a fully comprehensive prize that includes a commission to shoot a music feature for SLEAZENATION, potential representation from PYMCA and be fully equipped with the Olympus Digital SLR, the pioneering new range set to enhance digital photography through an incredible advance in lens technology.
Entries can be uploaded to either www.olympusdigitalsleaze.com or www.sleazenation.com or sent to ODS, Studio 213, Westbourne Studios, London W10 5JJ.
Olympus will stage an exhibition in early 2004 to showcase all entries as well as promoting the talent through a series of slide shows on the acclaimed digital photographic website www.steal-life.com
A recognised mix of talent, from all sides of the camera, will judge all of the entries:
Dennis Morris Celebrated music and social commentary photographer
Moloko Leftfield dance act
Steve Lazarides SLEAZE Creative Director and PYMCA Director
Neil Boorman SLEAZE Editor
Andrew Parker Olympus UK Marketing and Communications Manager
Andrew Parker, Olympus Marketing and Communications Manager, comments, "The
success of last year was such that ODS has become an integral part of our activity,
hence the commitment to providing an experienced and passionate judging panel
with a great opportunity for the winners. The digital age has been quickly embraced
and, most importantly, has allowed creative talent an immediate, and often previously
unexplored, outlet. ODS aims to support talent, offer advice, confidence and
direction. Like dance music in the 90s digital photography is open to
all and should be enjoyed."
