I received an email from Ryan Porter on behalf of Paramount Pictures to present a unique photography competition to our students.
“I’m contacting you on behalf of Paramount Pictures to present a unique photography competition to your students. The project is based on The Lovely Bones, a major motion picture we’re releasing on December 11. Adapted from the best-selling book of the same name, it’s a ‘story of life and everything that came after;’ a stunning tale of a young girl who watches over her family from heaven. Shot by visionary director Peter Jackson, the film looks to be an aesthetic masterpiece.
Photography is a major element in the film. The young girl/main character, Susie Salmon, captures as many memories as she can through her pictures, which is what gave us the idea for the competition.
It’s a simple and fun challenge- “How will college remember you?.” To participate, a student submits 4-5 standard-size photos that personify his or her college experience. They can be presented as a collection, sequence, or story- whatever captures the essence of their time at Cal State Fullerton. The participants have complete creative control, and what makes it an amazing event is that it promotes photography with the spirit of college.
We’d love for CSF’s photography department to participate in our college competition. Entries from CSF will compete only with other Orange County universities. With your approval, I’ll swing by your department with a few flyers and a submission box (I’ve attached a sample flier for your enjoyment). At the end of the competition I’ll pick up the box winners will be awarded free movie tickets and prize packages. The photos will be returned to your department where they would make an excellent collection to display.”
Taipei, Taiwan (Chinese Taipei) - The Call for Entries for the 2009 Taiwan International Graphic Design Award is open until 31 August 2009. Organised by the China Productivity Center, with the support of Icograda’s professional members in Taiwan (Chinese Taipei), the Award has been supported by the Department of Commercial Affairs of the Ministry of Economic Affairs since 2004.
