Welcome to the third YOUR EXHIBITION Shootout. This is a monthly series in which we encourage you to produce new images around a set theme, and you have the chance of receiving a zine from our collection.
Before we commence with this Shootout, we’d like to thank you for taking part in the previous Shootouts. We’ve really enjoyed seeing the great work that you’ve all been producing, and it means a lot to know that you’re being encouraged to try new things.
By now, you’ll know we invite a guest photographer that sets the theme, donates a zine, and ultimately judges the winner. For November, you’re stuck with me, Michael Boorman, for this one. Some of you may already know that I run the site and the Instagram page, but it’s you, the community, that make YOUR EXHIBITION what it is. However, if you are interested to learn more about me, then check out my articles on this site, or my post about the prize for this month’s Shootout (my debut zine): LIFELESS.
Those of you that have purchased a copy of LIFELESS will know that it is a typology of mannequins. As I collect images of mannequins, I was wondering what do you collect? Is there a subject matter that you can’t help but take photos of? If so, what is it? Show me! Simply upload 3-5 images of your chosen subject shot on film to Instagram, tag @YOUR_EXHIBITION in the images, and use the #YEShootout hashtag. Here’s my submission as an example.
Each Shootout lasts a month, so this one will run from today, November 1st, and close at the end of the month, November 30th. I will then pick my favourite, and said favourite will receive a copy LIFELESS.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask us via DM on Instagram. Otherwise, let the Shootout commence!
