Kodak offers FREE* photos and awards public photography prize at Australia’s largest Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition
Press Release

  • Print FREE* digital photos at the Kodak Marquee located at Marks Park, Bondi
  • Enter the Kodak Digital Photography Competition to win great prizes
  • Share photos with family and friends instantly with EasyShare-one weekend demonstrations

Kodak Australia is continuing its sponsorship of Sculpture by the Sea
and one again inviting visitors to experience FREE digital photo
sharing. The intrinsic connection between photography and the
exhibition ensured Kodak’s ongoing partnership in the highly popular
exhibition.

Now in its ninth year, Sculpture by the Sea Bondi is Australia’s
largest annual outdoor free to the public exhibition of contemporary
sculpture. Staged along Sydney’s spectacular Bondi to Tamarama coastal
walk, the exhibition attracts over 400,000 visitors and exhibits over
100 works by artists from Australia and overseas.

As the leader of digital imaging in Australia, Kodak is delighted to
have signed on as Major Sponsor of Sculpture by the Sea to enhance the
free to the public exhibition by offering a range of interactive
digital photo activities. Kodak encourages visitors to experience its
new digital technologies including the Kodak EasyShare-one – the
world’s fist wireless digital camera at this extraordinarily photogenic
art exhibition.

“We received such a wonderful response from visitors about the free
photo sharing activities we provided in 2004 and we believe Kodak will
help an even larger number of visitors connect with the exhibition this
year. Through the sponsorship, Kodak is enabling consumers who capture
digital images to experience the thrill of printing and sharing their
own pictures instantly in Mark’s Park,” said Steve Morley, General
Manager, Digital & Film Imaging Systems, Australia and New Zealand.

Kodak is providing a number of benefits for the duration of Sculpture by the Sea, including:

Free* digital photos for all visitors at the Kodak Marquee in Marks
Park allowing them to print digital photos instantly from their digital
camera’s memory card using the Kodak Picture Maker kiosks

Kodak EasyShare-one Demonstrations at the Kodak Marquee on weekends
will offer visitors a chance to experience instant sharing on the
world’s first consumer wireless camera, the Kodak EasyShare One -
allowing consumers to email pictures wirelessly right from the camera
near a Telstra Wireless Hotspot

Kodak Digital Photography Competition is open to all visitors wishing
to submit their favourite digital memory of the exhibition – supporting
the acceptance of digital photography for all consumers. The Kodak
Gallery Album on the Sculpture by the Sea website will display the Top
5 daily finalists of the competition and the grand winner will receive
$2,000, a Kodak EasyShare-one (the world’s first wireless digital
camera), plus the winning image will appear in the Sydney Morning Herald

The Primary School Education Program will benefit from the use of
Kodak’s latest digital cameras encouraging an understanding of the
possibilities with digital technology in early school years. Each child
attending a workshop will be able to take home their own magnetised
merit card featuring a photo of their sculpture to display on the
family fridge

Education Packs, including a complimentary Kodak one-time-use camera, will be given to each primary school group

The Kodak Sculpture Prize awards a $5,000 to a Sculpture by the Sea
sculptor. Kodak offers this award to support emerging artists in the
development of their career and profile in Australia.

Mr Morley added that Sculpture by the Sea is a complimentary partner
for Kodak as the event is one that inspires photography. Many visitors
to the exhibition equip themselves with a camera to capture and share
the beauty of Sculpture by the Sea with pictures. Kodak’s second year
sponsorship of the event has benefited the artists and the community as
well as creating a true brand synergy.
