Grinderman Photo Contest

First of all, THIS INTERVIEW amused me, particularly the last bit.

Anyway, re: this news should most certainly be allowed.


Grinderman are an explosive musical ensemble comprised of Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey and Jim Sclavunos. The band will be taking their electrifying live show across North America in the coming weeks in support of their acclaimed new album Grinderman2. In lieu of this, Grinderman are seeking aspiring photographers to capture performances throughout the tour. Those interested are asked to submit links to digital portfolios via email for consideration. The band will select a winner for each show on the tour and the winning photographer will be given special access to shoot their local show as a house photographer. The resulting photos will then be posted on the band’s official website and Facebook page alongside the works of professional photographers.

Contest instructions:

*Submit link to an online portfolio of your work to:

*Enter the date of the specific show you wish to be considered for in your subject line. Ex. “11/17/10 Show”

*Provide your full name and mobile number in the body of the e-mail

*Send us your e-mail no later than 48 hours before the show.

If you plan to enter and have questions about the contest, please send them to:


  1. Shit! I wish I'd known about that Grinderman contest earlier :(

  2. I know...they REALLY didn't promote this enough. I only found out about it randomly. I was searching for Grinderman photos and came across it. If I won, I'm not sure if it'd really be good or not...lot of pressure to take good pictures, AND I'm afraid I'd miss some of the show. Who am I kidding, though? All-in-all, it'd rock to win.
