NME Music Photography Awards 2014
The NME Music Photography Awards 2014 is now accepting entries. The best rock photographers know that with just one click of a shutter, they’ve got the power to capture a moment that can define a generation and live forever in music history. Whether its Arctic Monkeys first ever gig in the murky back room of a Sheffield pub of the moment Mick Jagger swaggers onstage for The Rolling Stones’ first every Glastonbury performance, the winners of the NME Photography Awards with Nikon know that great rock photography can plant an image in people’s minds that will stay with them for a lifetime. But you don’t have to be a master of the craft to capture an amazing rock photo. With Nikon’s range of compact cameras and DSLRs, specially designed for high-action shooting, you’ll be well kitted out become one of NME’s legendary photographers – and they’re giving NME readers the chance to win one.
Nikon knows that it’s all about catching those iconic moments – such as David Bowie thrashing Mick Ronson’s guitar with his teeth to Peace’s Harry Koissner throwing himself into an incendiary crowd – and turning them into a shot you’ll want to keep forever.
