We here at Tucker and Bloom love our records and so when we we’re approached by our friends at Flea Market Funk and Dust and Grooves about supporting a contest centered around record collection photography we we’re imidiatly intrigued. Check out the details below. We are sending a North To South messenger bag to the first place winner and there are a ton of other cool prizes.
Wax On Film: A Vinyl Photo Contest is an opportunity for vinyl collectors of all walks of life to showcase their true love for vinyl. It’s put together by Jamison Harvey of Flea Market Funk and Eilon Paz, of the acclaimed vinyl documentary photo site Dust & Grooves. The mission of this photo contest is to help preserve vinyl heritage, as well as the artists that make it, just as our contestants do with their collections. We want you to submit photos of your own vinyl collection!
We urge you to be creative with your photography. It could be a straight on shot, a collage, a digitally manipulated image, or any other creative art piece in the medium of photography. Submissions will be judged by Jamison Harvey (DJ & creator of Flea Market Funk), Eilon Paz (Photographer & creator of Dust & Grooves), influential world famous DJ Rich Medina, Brian Ho (art director & creator of Dreams In Audio) and Brian Cross aka B+ (photographer & film maker from Mochilla). All finalists of the contest will be featured in articles on Flea Market Funk as well as Dust & Grooves.
