New Street Photography Competition for Australians

Australians encouraged to capture the energy of the street in the

G-Street Photography Contest

Sydney, Australia – March 6, 2012 – G-Technology by Hitachi, which offers a range of premium external storage solutions perfect for the creative community, today announced the launch of the G-Street Photography Contest, giving budding street photographers the chance to be exhibited in an exclusive event and gallery exhibition.

The contest has two sections, including digital/film and mobile photography, encouraging everyone to participate no matter what type of street photography they’re into. Two of Australia’s top street photographers, Michael ‘Misho’ Baranovic and Tamara Voninski, have signed on to judge the competition, but people can also vote for their favourite entry to win the people’s choice award in each category.

Michael ‘Misho’ Baranovic, who is judging the mobile section, said “I’m really excited to be part of the G-Street Photography Contest. It’s a great opportunity to promote the emerging practice of mobile street photography and give some up and coming photographers the opportunity to have their work exhibited.”

Tamara Voninski, who is judging the digital/film section, said “Street photography is a unique way to capture the times in which we live and the essence, beauty, wonder and struggle of everyday life. I’m looking forward to this competition and seeing the world through the eyes of the next generation of street photographers.”

As well as both the Judges’ and Popular Choice winners receiving premium G-Technology external storage products, designed to match the Macs and iOS devices, top entries will also be exclusively exhibited in Melbourne’s No Vacancy gallery from 19-21 April.

Entrants can hit the streets, then hit up G-Technology’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/GTechnologyAP to upload your shots. Entries close 19 March and the winners will be announced on 2 April.

      It is actually unclear. I can see no real competition rules, so there actually is nothing saying Australians ONLY that I can see. I’ve emailed them to find out.

        Yes, it is Australian residents, 18 years and older. If you click through to the competition page the terms are there.

    Hey again, Wayne…
    I just “liked” their Facebook page, and once you get past there, it does say you need to be an AUS resident.
    Cheers,
    Diana
