Let your creative self shine sista!

Photographer and Founder of The Sista Code, Melissa Histon, is holding an exhibition at The Project Space, Newcastle, in December 2014 called “Through the eyes of a sista…” and wants to share the space with some budding photographers who have joined The Sista Code movement.

Get creative and have some fun with photography for the chance to exhibit your photograph/s! The Sista Code will be running a photography competition, during which time participants may be invited to participate in the exhibition, “Through the eyes of a sista…”. 

You do NOT need to be a professional or serious photographer to participate – this is for anyone and everyone.

Each Monday, for the next seven weeks, a different photographic theme will be posted on The Sista Code blog and sent to you via email.

Week 1: 29 Sept – 5 October, the theme is “sista”
Week 2: 6 – 12 October, the theme is “circle”                    
Week 3: 13 – 19 October, the theme is “look up”                 
Week 4: 20 – 26 October, the theme is “shine”            
Week 5: 27 Oct – 2 November, the theme is “on the street”        
Week 6: 3 – 9 November, the theme is “this made me smile”                
Week 7: 10 – 17 November, the theme is “calm”

Have fun expressing your creative side and shooting new photographs for the theme each week. There are no rights or wrongs, it’s all about having fun and enjoying inspiring others through your photography.

Each Sunday a selection of finalist images for that week/theme will be picked from Instagram and posted on The Sista Code Photo Gallery and on the Facebook Page. A guest judge will pick and invite 6 images/people from that week/theme to send in their photographic print to participate in the exhibition.

If you are invited to exhibit, we will contact you via email. We will be asking all participating exhibitors to pay a fee of $30 to cover the cost of matting and hanging the images in the exhibition space. You will need to send us an 8″ x 10″ photographic print of your image which we will then matt and hang in the exhibition space. We will notify you where to send your print.

The exhibition, ‘Through the eyes of a sista…’ will run from Wednesday 3rd December until Saturday 20th December 2014 at The Project Space, The Emporium, Hunter Street Mall, Newcastle NSW Australia.

The Project Space is a Renew Newcastle initiative giving creatives the opportunity to exhibit their work.

Best of luck! Have fun! We look forward to seeing your images on Instagram!
