We get requests to publicise exhibitions and competitions amongst other things. Having a global reach as a photo blogger means we have access to so many people that all sorts of companies and organisations are interested in what we say and to whom we say it. We vet these requests and avoid the purely commercial. This request to advertise the 40th anniversary of Vogel’s existence seemed benign enough to pass on, in addition it is a competition that everyone can enter and you might win a TV
“Vogel’s is a Dutch company that offers mounting solutions for audio and video equipment like TVs. Next year, Vogel’s celebrate their 40th birthday. In that time, Vogel’s has seen significant changes in where people position a television in the living room and the way we watch television.
To see what these differences are and how people from various countries and cultures watch television, Vogel’s has launched an international photography competition. The theme is ‘watching television in different cultures’.
We ask photography students and keen amateur photographers to submit a photo, which captures an individual or group from a particular culture or nationality watching television. It could be anythingfrom a typical Dutch farmer’s family in front of the television with a dinner plate on their lap through to a group of English football supporters watching their team play on a big screen in a pub. Fantastic prizes can be won, the first prize is a television.“…..
