Tanqueray Gin / Magnum Photos Photography Competition & Exhibition Add/Read Comments
Snooth Wine Search:
The exhibition, 'A Taste for Life', will feature images from renowned Magnum photographers which celebrate rich, intense moments in life to reflect the intense taste of Tanqueray. From romance in Paris to crowd reactions in the US Presidential elections, the exhibition will feature a wide range of images which capture intensely deep emotions, reactions and feelings.
Alongside the project, a competition is being run by the makers of Tanqueray gin to give ten photographers a chance to feature in the Magnum Photos exhibition as well as winning a top prize of £5,000. Entrants in the two age categories (18-24) and (25+) will need to capture their interpretation of a 'Taste for Life' and provide their own rich, intense moments. To help guide entrants there will be five categories to enter covering adventure, relationships, cocktails & glamour, achievements and festivals & celebrations.
All entrants will be judged by a panel of experts including Stuart Franklin, President of Magnum Photos, Jeremy Langmead, Editor of Esquire magazine, Alan Sparrow, Picture Editor of Metro, Nicky Catley, Picture Editor of The Daily Telegraph and Kristof Fahey, Vice President of Marketing for Yahoo! Europe.
To inspire entrants, the makers of Tanqueray have commissioned Stuart Franklin to capture his own 'Taste for Life' images. To view these images and enter the competition visit www.ATasteForLife.co.uk. A shortlist of forty entries will be selected for the final judging process and all pictures will also be put forward for the public to vote for a People's Choice to feature in the exhibition.
'A Taste for Life' exhibition will launch with a glittering launch party this spring at iconic design venue Liberty.
If you have any interest in photography the galleries, where you can vote for your favourites, are well worth an inspiring peruse.
