Preview: Peaches and Cream IV

Monday 28 April 2014
Words Darren Skene

I refer not to the summer desert or the song by 112. No, in this case I refer to the wonderful annual open photographic competition, exhibition and award which we are extremely proud to partner with for 2014.

Founded in 2011, and now onto it’s 4th year, Peaches & Cream was initiated by Millennium Images director Jason Shenai in collaboration with Crane Kalman Brighton Gallery, with the aim of discovering and rewarding the best emerging photographers who grasp the art of storytelling through their lens and thus provoking thoughts and emotions.

The competition opens today to anyone and everyone around the globe to submit their photography work, which will be judged by highly esteemed experts from the photography and publishing industry: Richard Kalman, owner of Crane Kalman Brighton Gallery; Richard Evans, art director at Atlantic Books; Jason Shenai, owner of Millennium Images; Jonathan Blyth, co-founder and creative director of Fotonow; Federica Landi, manager of Milim Gallery.

The 11 best pieces will be shortlisted and exhibited at DreamSpace Gallery in October 2014 where the winners will be announced.
