Will you be the 60th contributor?Press release:
Are you a budding photographer looking for your big chance to exhibit
alongside some of the great creative minds of our time? Would you
relish the chance of being the 60th contributor to a groundbreaking
project? The Institute of Contemporary Arts is collaborating with Sony
Ericsson to launch a pioneering initiative, All Tomorrow’s
Pictures, to help celebrate its 60th anniversary and is inviting
members of the public to take part via an innovative competition.
59 high profile names - spanning film, design, art, literature, music,
fashion, science and politics and including Bloc Party, Peter Blake,
Chapman Brothers, Alison Goldfrapp, Helena Christensen and Nathalie
Press, have committed to produce images for a book and exhibition
inspired by the theme of ‘Tomorrow’. All images
will be taken using a Sony Ericsson K800i Cybershot phone. One lucky
member of the public will be chosen to complete the final 60th image
for the project.
The winning participant will get to see their work form part of a
visionary exhibition as well as having their image unveiled in a
beautifully produced hardback book at a gala charity event, both at
London’s ICA. In addition, the winner will also receive a
Sony Ericsson K800i Cybershot phone, a Bluetooth printer, a
year’s membership at the ICA and a day with a professional
photographer to learn tips from a master.
A judging panel comprising Ekow Eshun, Artistic Director of the ICA,
John Harber, Managing Director of Sony Ericsson UK & Ireland
and two of the 59 contributors will decide upon the all important 60th
contribution from a member of the British public.
To enter this unique project, images can simply be sent via mobile MMS
The competition goes live on 7 February and will be open until 2 March.
Further information and inspiration for pictures can be accessed via www.ica.org.uk/tomorrow
John Harber, MD Sony Ericsson UK & Ireland said: “This
competition offers a member of the public to become part of history
while looking to the future for inspiration. The Sony Ericsson K800i is
one of the world’s most innovative and feature rich imaging
phones, so our creative talent will be well equipped to successfully
capture their visions of tomorrow.”
