Our Hidden depths competition is now open... Win £1000. In association with Tiger Beer

Hidden Depths

Create In Brighton is proud to announce a second competition taking place this Autumn 2012 entitled Hidden Depths. This is another fine collaboration with Tiger Beer and is a part of their Hidden Depths campaign that has been taking place across London.



All you have to do for a chance of bagging the jackpot is:

  •  Upload a photograph to Instagram that you think best represents the ‘MUSICAL HIDDEN DEPTHS OF BRIGHTON’. This might be a gig, a band back stage setting up, a music venue behind the scenes, buskers, barbershop quartet – you name it. Be creative.
  •  You must also follow ‘createinbrighton’ on Instagram so that we can follow you back and make announcements along the way.
  •  You must hashtag the photo you enter with #hiddendepthsbrighton so that we can see your entry.
  • Your photos must NOT be set to private to be able to enter!
  • As an entrant into our competition we will need to contact you regarding the final event on 18.11.12 and full rules. Please email a copy of your entry and your full name, address, age, telephone number to info(at)createinbrighton.co.uk by 9am 16.11.12. 


The Judges

Our judges for Hidden Depths hail from Brighton as well as being professional and very well respected photographers. Both also use Instagram on a regular basis and can spot a ‘hit’ from a ‘miss’ despite the relative ease of the application that turns regular photos into something a bit more special.

Kevin Meredith (AKA Lomokev) is a Brighton based photographer and teacher of photography. He is prolific within the city and has published several, successful books. He has featured in a range of publications including National Geographic, Russian Esquire, and on the BBC news website and Rolling Stone.com. In 2006 he sat on the panel of judges for flickr.com’s “Blink of the Eye” photo competition in New York and judged again in 2008 for pixish.com’s “The SXSW Gallery Show” competition. http://lomokev.com/

James Kendall is owner and editor of Brighton’s best loved guide to the city, Brighton Source. James is often spotted about town,  writing and photographing gigs, exhibitions, events, restaurants, clubs, you name it. He is an authority on what makes this town tick and knows its musical heritage and happenings like the back of his hand. Added to all this, he is a keen photographer and will be speaking at the Miniclick Photography Talks as part of Brighton Photo Fringe 2012 on 13th November. For one of his recent projects, he photographed his grandmother-in-law’s rather old tinned products from yesteryear, and caught the attention of The Guardian, who featured them in their G2 section, as well as the BBC and ITV. http://brightonsource.co.uk/
