As SXSW Music festival is right around the corner, Neiman Marcus has been on the quest for some ‘street-style’ photographers to take photos for their NMDaily blog through a Facebook contest on Neiman Marcus’s Facebook page.
To enter, applicants are asked to fill out a questioner as well as send in a few samples of their photography. The winner of this contest will attend SXSW music festival as a correspondent photographer on behalf of Neiman Marcus and their photos will be posted on NM’s Facebook, Twitter as well as their blog.
SXSW is held in Austin, TX from March 9th until March 18th. The festival, which is hosted by the SXSW Austin-based music station, includes films, live music and activities.
This is a great opportunity to focus on various curated forms of expression, as neither the photographer is a selected professional, nor are the people they would be photographing.
Users can access this contest through Neiman Marcus’ Facebook page, by clicking on the SXSW Tab http://www.facebook.com/neimanmarcus as well as on their blog, http://www.nmdaily.com
