CAPTURED! COMPETITION

1 Jun 2018 - 26 Sep 2018

A photographic & digital art exhibition

Et tu Brute?

Theatre North at the Princess is presenting Bell Shakespeare’s production of Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare on Friday 31 August 2018 at the Princess Theatre.

The play is a political thriller, a masterpiece of intrigue, a struggle for power in the Roman Republic. Does this sound familiar in Australian and world politics today?

What makes a politician, what makes us vote for them, who is the person we see in the often captured media image?

Theatre North at the Princess, Hotel Grand Chancellor Launceston and Stallards Camera House invite photographers and digital artists to capture/create an image of a known politician, any politician – the public persona, the private individual or a side that the public may not see. Entrants go into the running to win some very attractive prizes.

 

ENTRY FORMS available NOW from the Princess Theatre Box Office, Hotel Grand Chancellor Reception, Stallards Camera House or download one HERE
