The Hockley Flyer and YBA Publications are holding a competition to find the best photograph for the front cover of the new magazine; Historic Jewellery Quarter. This is a brand new magazine which hopes to give an insight into the Jewellery Quarter’s past.
They are looking for a photograph that captures the very essence of the Jewellery Quarter and its heritage. Perhaps a photo of a typical jewellers or silversmiths workshop? Past or present photographs are welcome!
I spoke to the guys down at the Jewellery Quarter Heritage who gave me some background and also an idea of what they are looking for…
The Hockley Flyer magazine has been published by us for nearly a quarter of a century and we also published the first (and second) History & Guide to The Jewellery Quarter over 20 years ago, which is almost sold out.
During that time we have accumulated over one thousand items on the history of the Quarter – far too much to publish as a ‘book’ so we decided to publish a quarterly magazine ‘Jewellery Quarter Heritage’ which will hopefully run for several years.
What we are always short of is photographs, some that we do have cannot be reproduced good enough for a magazine cover. That is what the competition is about – to obtain pics of ‘existing workshops’ in their ‘real working state’.
To enter simply email the photograph(s) with your name and address or use the form available here. Please be sure to read the terms & conditions and note that entries not chosen may be used in future issues of the magazine. The competition winner will win a subscription to the first four issues of the magazine, and will hopefully be announced at the launch on 6th September at Vertu Bar.
