Guest Speaker, ACMP, Wed 10am 16th July

2008-07-14 — posted by at 03:34

Wed 10am 16th July, a guest speaker from the ACMP, Australian Commercial Magazine Photographers is coming to talk about ‘Trampoline’.

Trampoline is a non-profit organisation committed to the development and promotion of professional photography. Trampoline was formed in 2003 as part of the ACMP (the Association of Australian Commercial & Media Photographers) and currently has committees based in both Sydney and Melbourne. Our aim is to bring together, inspire and educate emerging photographers through events, seminars, forums and competitions, specifically targeted towards students of photography, photographer’s assistants, emerging photographers and photo artists.

On July 24, 2008 we will be screening the 15 finalists for ACMP Projections ’08 in association with Sony. This is a competition we ran at the beginning of the year (now in it’s fifth year), which provides an excellent opportunity for students, assistants and emerging photographers and photo artists alike to gain exposure, raise their profile within the creative community and be recognised as the future of the photographic industry.

Trampoline would like to run a brief informal info session for students (lasting approximately 30 minutes) to explain what we are all about, screen the previous finalists entries of last years Projections competition, and to promote this years screening of which will be held @ ACMI. We would like to extend this invitation to all students of creative arts and design, not limited to just photography, in all year levels.

Photographic compettion

CITY Magazine is accepting submissions for CITY Magazines, City Life page.

For this page, we are looking for an image that a photographer has taken on his/her travels. This one image will sum up the city for the reader. It does not have to be a landmark, but it should portray how the photographer views said city.

I have included some examples of previous City Life Pages below. You can also go to city-magazine.com, click on E-Zine and check out past issues if you would like to see more examples. The current issue is $1 to view, but the past issues are all free.
