MET2TATE - Liverpool through your lens
Met2Tate is designed to inspire and capture a unique vista of Liverpool, its atmosphere, people, places, nooks, crannies and secrets as seen by you.
This is a photography competition for everyone. Whether it is the first time you’ve ever picked up a camera or you’re a budding David Bailey, the emphasis is on capturing Liverpool through your eyes and encouraging anyone to try their hand at photography.
HOW IT WORKS
What you will need:
- A camera (your camera phone will work too)
- A Met2Tate map
- A touch of creativity and a little inspiration…
How to play:
Four ‘pic-stops’ are distinctly marked with a camera icon on the map.
Your challenge is to walk the trail from Tate Liverpool to Metquarter or vice versa, via Mathew Street, and Derby Square and capture what you encounter on camera.
At each ‘pic-stop’ we invite you to simply stand and see. Look up and down and around, pay attention to your other senses; smell, touch, sound, let the surroundings sink in. Spend as long as you need at each ‘pic-stop’ and think about what Liverpool means to you, your quarter of the Met. Show us your vision of the ‘pool.
Once you are feeling suitably inspired grab your camera and capture something of what you see; a person, a fleeting moment, a window reflection, a flyer on the ground, a panorama, the sky, a sign, anything or everything, your creativity need know no bounds.
Once you have a photograph from each ‘pic-stop’ simply upload your photos to the website.
Your photos will be viewable in the on-line gallery and the best will be profiled each month.
WHAT YOU CAN WIN
Win a camera and have your photograph on show at Tate Liverpool!
The winning photos will be exhibited at Metquarter in 2008.
When walking the trail and taking your photographs please remember to be respectful to the people and places that may find themselves in front of your lens - make sure you have permission to photograph those under the age of 16.
