You can take part in the competition starting now, the deadline is 19.01.2018.

Rules are very easy:

  • Photos should be in the best possible resolution, originals without signatures or watermarks. If you are sending more than one photo, please use a file sharing program like YouSendIt or similar.

  • Don’t forget to send also photos of the band members, audience, complete band or anything you consider of interest for the artwork.

  • Add your name, address (postal zip code too) and email address.

  • Be sure to include the date and location of the show, at which you took the photos and the "transfer of photo right". If you will send photos in more than one occasion during the next months, one copy of the "transfer of photo right” with the first photos is enough.

  • The photos will be delivered to Tarja, who will personally select the ones that will be used for the “ACT II” artwork.

    Every photographer / fan whose photo (or maybe more than one photo) is chosen, will receive a free “ACT II” DVD or BluRay (at your choice).
