Competitions: D-Comp: Light Play

Win an exhibition spot

We are happy to announce a very exciting D-Comp opportunity to close out 2012: In partnership with Jax Wine & Tapas Bar in Newmarket, Auckland, we are giving readers the opportunity to have their work professionally printed, framed and displayed for sale in a dedicated exhibition at the swanky Jax venue!

As well as being a high-quality boutique wine and tapas bar, JAX also doubles as a photography gallery and their next exhibition will exclusively feature this issue’s D-Comp winners.

Theme: Light play

Deadline: 5:00PM, December 17, 2012

Brief: Interpret the theme “light play” as you wish. Show us how the summer light plays on a beautiful landscape. Make light of photographic rules and play with convention. Take it in part or in full, do with it as you will – just show us images that are technically excellent and creatively striking.

Each photograph will be judged by an expert panel on its technique (10 points), creativity (10 points), subject matter (5 points) and impact (5 points).

Submit your image below and if our panel of judges chooses yours as one of the top ten it will be professionally printed and framed free of charge and publicly exhibited at JAX Wine & Tapas Bar in Auckland.
