We’re thrilled to announce that Steve Scalone and Craig Wetjen co-Founders of Project Street 7.30 will be hosting our charity print auction at Lenscape. And you’re invited to take part.
If you haven’t heard of the Project Street 7.30, it’s a unique photographic challenge where 30 photographers are set the task to shoot, edit, print all in 7 hours, culminating in an auction of the pieces with all proceeds going to a selected charity. Project Street 7.30 has raised more than $18,000 in Melbourne and Adelaide alone and due to its huge success they plan to travel to all capital cities in Australia.
Annually the AIPP has a charity print auction and we can't see a better way to help than to invite Steve & Craig to come to Lenscape.
In changing things up a little, here are the details...
Arrive one day early, Friday 4th May, to take part in the pre-Lenscape shenanigans.
Photographers have a few short hours to shoot, edit and submit their work for print, of which 30 will be selected at random to be used in the special charity print auction, which will take place Saturday evening 5th of May at Lenscape.
