SHOOTOUT

SHOOTOUT: June 2019 - Home

Now, on with June’s SHOOTOUT! The judge for this one is none-other than Murphys Film’s Garth Murphy and the prize is his zine: Mono. It’s a brilliant zine celebrating Garth’s best monochrome images of Liverpool from 2017.

The brief is fitting to the zine: Home. Garth wants you to capture something about your home. Here’s what he had to say:

“The idea being whether it be your house or your city, take a chance to slow down and have a look at the smaller details which make up your home”.

SHOOTOUT: May 2019 - TELL A STORY

Welcome to the YOUR EXHIBITION SHOOTOUT announcement for May 2019. 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.

The brief is dope too: TELL A STORY. Karl would like you to emulate what he does in 48 by posting an image or two that TELL A STORY. This brief could be interpreted in many ways, so we look forward to seeing what you come up with.

SHOOTOUT: April 2019 - GET LOW

Welcome to the YOUR EXHIBITION SHOOTOUT announcement for April 2019. 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.

Now it’s time for the April SHOOTOUT, and it comes courtesy of Jason Brewer and he’s donated a very special zine: Oddments Volume Two. We absolutely love this zine. There’s a clear evolution from the first volume, and the imagery is beautifully diverse due to the sub-narratives. To learn more about this zine, check out the A LOOK AT article we published here; a great zine for anyone to pick up.

SHOOTOUT: March 2019 - Happy Accidents

Now it’s time for March’s SHOOTOUT, and it’s a pretty awesome one! We’re stoked to have Jules Le Moal being the judge for this one, and he’s donated a very special zine: Useful Idiocy. If you’re fortunate enough to already have a copy of this zine, you’ll know how great it is. It’s certainly a wonderful zine to have in anyone’s collection.

SHOOTOUT: February 2019 - SURREALISM

This month’s theme is SURREALISM. This is deliberately quite a loose brief, so feel free to experiment. Steven liked the idea of ‘surrealism being the art of combining of dreams and reality’, and so interpret that how you’d like! Maybe you'll try cross processing, lens-whacking, shooting expired disposable cameras, or whatever else you can dream up. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

SHOOTOUT: September 2018 - "Self Portrait"

Welcome to the first YOUR EXHIBITION Shootout. This will be 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. As this is the first one, this will be trial and error, so do bear with us whilst we iron out the details. 

Each month we will have a guest photographer donate the zine, set the theme, and judge the images. For the first one, we are proud to have Daniel Keys judging this one. Some of you may be familiar with Daniel's thought-provoking work already, but if you're not, we recommend checking out his profile, his articles and the article we produced on his zine: Silent Spring

As for the first theme, Daniel has set a broad theme: Self Portrait - there's a catch though: you're not allowed to directly be in the image. How do you take a self portrait without being in the image? Well that's down to you. Interpret this theme how you'd like; we look forward to seeing how creative you can be with this brief.

Each Shootout will last a month, so this first one will run from today, September 1st, and close at the end of the month, September 30th. To participate, simply upload your chosen analogue photo to Instagram, tag us in the image, and use the hashtag #YEShootout. Daniel will then judge his favourite, and we'll go from there.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask us via DM on Instagram. Otherwise, let the Shootout commence!
