Sydney prepare yourself for Australia’s first ever iStockalypse! iSTOCKaWHAT? Don’t fret, the world isn’t ending anytime soon.

Instead three days of photo-filled fun, education and experience awaits, bringing together local and global photographers. iStock by Getty Images is hosting a global photography summit on the sunny shores of Bondi from 6 – 8 November.



The first iStockalypse event was held in 2005 in Las Vegas and has since travelled the globe and is finally making its way down under. The multi-day event brings together iStock contributors, photographers and professionals to share in their camera knowledge and passion for creating quality stock images. The event schedule is filled with workshops, seminars and practical sessions where attendees can get behind the lens and chat with the experts of the Getty Images’ creative team.

Local photographers (that means Aussie’s only) are asked to snap an image that captures the warmth of “Everyday Australia” and submit it by 20 October to Getty Images. Think laid back, summer days, easy going, happy days and illustrate the true Australia you experience everyday. You can be as creative as you like and entries shot on mobile devices such as smartphones are welcome. The winners will be judged on composition, originally, technical skills and their application of the brief.
