Win chance to shoot at music festival

March 20, 2008

A pair of tickets and access to the press photographers’ pit is up for grabs at Fairport Convention?s festival in Cropredy, Oxfordshire which takes place from 7-9 August.

The winner of the competition, organised in conjunction with Amateur Photographer (AP) magazine, will accompany AP?s technical editor Angela Nicholson in the photographers’ pit.

Supergrass and the Levellers are among the bands expected to perform at the annual event, alongside veteran folk band Fairport Convention.

A camping ticket is provided as part of the prize but the winner needs to bring their own tent and pitch it themselves, according to organisers.

The three-day ticket is worth £72.

To enter the competition, post your best music/gig prints (maximum size A4) or transparencies, along with 50 words on why you think you should have access to the press pit, to: Fairport competition, Amateur Photographer magazine, IPC Media, Blue Fin Building, 110 Southwark Street, London SE1 0SU.

The closing date for receipt of entries is 31 May 2008.
