15th December 2011 at 7pm. Deadline 10th December 2011. Midnight GMT
Instant Coffees will feature a special selection encapsulating the theme of CELEBRATION.
We are looking for slideshows, photo-films or multimedia that show celebration in all its forms. This could be a series of images surrounding religious or pagan rites, personal or public events, festivals, or simply a series of images that celebrate the diversity of a community. We would like to give photographers the chance to express their own unique view of this theme and in particular work that re-interprets the idea of celebration.
Submission deadline is 10th December 2011 and you can find submission details here.
We are also very pleased to have Daniel Meadows, photographer and lecturer at Newport’s School of Art and Design and at Cardiff University, along for the evening to give a talk about digital storytelling and his work as a documentarist.*
This event will be a celebration of a year of Instant Coffees and would like to invite you all to attend the evening of festivities, drink, food and other surprises.
* He is best known for his work as a documentarist, in particular for two projects: his Free Photographic Omnibus (1973-74) when he toured Britain in a double-decker bus, establishing free studios in towns and cities across the country; and Capture Wales (2001-2008) the innovative digital storytelling work he initiated for the BBC. Meadows lectures in photography and participatory media at the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies at Cardiff University. He is the author of five books including Living Like This (1975) and The Bus (2001). His photography and multimedia work has been widely exhibited both in the UK and abroad.
