Shoot City - photography event - SHOOTING THE SQUARE MILE

On Saturday the 30th September 2006, hundreds of snappers will be taking to the streets of the Square Mile to take part in the latest Shoot Experience – Shoot City.
 
A Shoot Experience is a photographic treasure hunt aimed at all level of photographers from weekend snappers, photography students to professionals. 
Teams are given clues and tasked to find and photograph the solutions.
 
SHOOT CITY
The City of London has some of the most beautiful buildings with some amazing stories to tell. By solving  clues, you'll be taken on a journey and discover fascinating facts about London's centre of commerce.
 
Shoot City takes place on Saturday 30th September, starting at the Light Bar on Shoreditch High Street.
 
This event is taking place in conjunction with the City of London's photography exhibition, "Making Spaces" which is taking place from the 29 th September to the 27th October 2006 at 1 Spital Square, off Spitalfields Market. The best images from Shoot City will be featured in this exhibition.
 
WHEN : Sunday 30th September 2006. Registration opens at 10: 45am. The event finishes at 7pm
WHERE : The Light Bar, Shoreditch High Street ( http://www.thelighte1.com )
HOW MUCH : £12 per person (must enter as team - minimum 2, maximum 4)

THE DETAILS
Teams will need one digital camera per team and bags of creative energy. For most of an afternoon they must race through the city deciphering clues and capturing the area on camera.
Teams return to the Light Bar to download their photos and watch as the judging commences. 
Emphasis will be placed more on evoking emotional response than technical proficiency, so don't worry if you're not a professional photographer.
 
The day finishes with a drinks party and prize giving.
