Chasinghosts are some of Australias finest paintspotters, so when I heard about their new project, I was pretty stoked! Its about time the passion of the multitude of people snapping shots of graffiti and street art across Melbourne was recognised, and having such an auspicious new competition in the hands of the Chasinghosts team? I can think of no one better – read on below for more details about the whole shebang, and if you have "That One Shot" laying around, get into it!
"Over the last few years the Melbourne Street Art Scene has exploded with amazing work from local and international talent. This in turn has inspired hundreds of photographers to find creative ways to capture the evolution of Melbourne’s streets. In 2013 we are calling on the photographers of Melbourne to submit their favourite single shot as part of "That One Shot" Melbourne’s first Street Art Photography Award.
A short list of the top 12 entries will be reviewed by a panel of five industry judges including Toby from Just Another Agency and local photography legend Nicole Reed. First and second prize packs, and a "Peoples Choice" award, will be presented to participants on the night of the event.
We have a great selection of local and international sponsors such as Lomography, Light Leaks Photo Studio,Very Nearly Almost Magazine, Boywolf clothing, and Uppercup supplying goods for the prize packs.
The event will be hosted at Husband in South Yarra on Friday the 13th of December where photos from all 12 finalists will be displayed.
Entries open on Monday the 21st of October and close on the 30th of November 2013, head to Thatoneshot.com for more details and to enter."
Cant wait to see all the entries, and can’t wait to see who wins!!
