The PhotoVoice team would like to say thank you to all of you who attended and contributed or bought prints at the auction on Tuesday 20th November 2012.
The evening was very successful and thanks to the generosity of so many people we were able to raise vital funds for the ongoing work of PhotoVoice.
Here is a slideshow showcasing a selection of the projects and participant interviews from 2012
A special thank you to all print donors & buyers, trustees & ambassadors, staff and all supporters whose contribution helped make the auction an enjoyable evening. And also a special thanks to our sponsors Thompson Reuters and ReedSmith.
This year the auction had a number of changes in format and venue including our new hosts LBi and our auctioneer Sebastien Montabonel, contributing to the overall buzz of the night.
Special guests included project participants Keyarn Nelson from the Lookout project, and bursary recipients Bianca Tennant and Vaneesha Cunningham who were the fantastic photographers for the evening.
The Bidsmart text bidding system (with the added smartphone app) saw a return this year to run the Silent Auction, which allowed for a larger number of absent bidders taking part from around the world.
Top selling prints included Marcus Lyon’s large scale Trabants-XII, kennardphillips’s well known Photo Op and Carinthia West’s 1976 Pink Floyd Contact Sheet from the album cover of ‘Animals’.
It was said that our collection of 85 prints was one of the best to date, so a fitting tribute to the 10 years that the auction has been running. The prints completely transformed LBi’s space into a fantastic gallery of top quality photography.
the event so we can improve things for future years.
