Entries are being invited for the third International Open Image Competition. Selected entries will be shown in a two week exhibition at the Waterloo Gallery in Baylis Road next spring.
This competition is open to all areas of creative media to support the promotion of talent within the fields of digital imaging, virtual reality, web art, photography, installations, painting, sculpture & mixed media.
It provides a channel for a collective of thoughts, skills & ideas to be expressed, explored, discovered and promoted. It is an opportunity for established professionals and emerging talent to have their work appreciated by a mix of their industry peers and the wider public at large.
The theme for this years competition is 'My World'.
Each person that enters (IOI) 2004 by the deadline will receive one ticket for the Children with Leukemia Christmas Grand Draw. The first prize is £15,000 cash or a car.
The Waterloo Gallery is a Photolink Initative, and although originally intended to be a showcase for young photographers, has evolved into a community gallery close to the South Bank for all artists and groups, particularly those with a local emphasis, and in so doing is bringing art and its appreciation to those sections of the surrounding community who may be otherwise unable to access it. Photolink is a small charity based at Waterloo Action Centre.
Entries can be submitted as JPEGs online or on CD, prints, slides or video. The closing date for entries is 17 December 2003.
The selected entries will be showcased in a 2 week exhibition at the Waterloo Gallery from 28 March to 10 April 2004.
