Life behind the lens: BBC searches for images of Norfolk music scene

Iconic images from around the world are often used as symbols of past glory days within music.
Whether it be The Beatles’ Abbey Road album cover, or Jimi Hendrix setting his guitar on fire, music photos can help capture a moment as well as the imagination.
And now the BBC has launched a new photo competition to find both professional and amateur shots capturing the Norfolk music scene. Photographers are being asked to send in images which they feel best capture the mood.
Those photos adjudged to be the most creative will be entered into the exhibit.
Dubbed Music: In Focus, the exhibition will pull together photos snapped at gigs, rehearsals or events in Norfolk, as well as pictures of local acts playing at events further afield.
It has been launched to complement this autumn’s BBC Music Video Festival, which documents a year of Norfolk music.
Entry is open to individuals of all abilities.
“Everything from cell-phone snaps of gigs to professional promo pictures can be entered, although the organisers will want to hear about the story behind the lens,” the BBC explained.
The project has been put together by the organisers of the BBC Music Video Festival and the Norwich-based Outline magazine who will be involved in displaying the images at The Forum in Norwich from September 26th to October 1st 2011.
Pictures will also be found dotted across city shops, bars and venues.
The BBC runs a number of schemes designed to help budding musicians and other individuals working in the creative industry exposure. As part of its Performing Arts Fund, individuals can apply for funding for instruments, training and development over the course of the year.
