Adobe recently put forth a challenge to students in the UK with a cash prize of £10,000. The deadline is soon so if you want in on it you better work quick! Since so many of our readers live outside the UK I thought it might be fun to work with Adobe on our own project. They thought so too, so here it is!
The Booooooom + Adobe Remake photo project.
The idea of the project is to remake a famous work of art using photography. This photo by Sarah Hermans is a perfect example of what I’m after as it references Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam” simply, and beautifully. Now I don’t have £10,000 to put up as prize money but I was able to get a copy of the entire Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 Master Collection ($899).
1. This is a PHOTO project! I’m looking for photos only. This means no paintings, drawings, collages. The idea is to put all your creative energy into re-creating and re-staging the image. All the work here happens before you take the photo, rather than afterward. Please refrain from adding special effects and other things to your image on your computer.
2. Please reference classic works of art, I’m not looking for remakes of contemporary artwork, album covers, or fashion photography.
3. This isn’t a rule but if you want a bit of inspiration take a look at: Miranda July as movie extras.
HOW TO SUBMIT
1. Jump over to our FACEBOOK PAGE.
2. Upload a photo to our wall. A limit of 2 submissions please!
3. Where it says “say something about this photo…” write the name of the famous work of art you have remade, and copy/paste this link: http://booo.ms/r46XWc
4. Hit the share button and you’re all done.
The best submissions will be posted in a gallery on Booooooom and one of you will walk away with the prize!
Deadline for submissions is October 21st 2011.
By submitting your work to the Booooooom Facebook group you are giving us permission to post them on our website and pass them along to other blogs and news outlets who want to post about the project!
