the prize is to be photographed by mick in east london on the 11th of november; photographs will be released for the band’s use, as well as being publicised by idea generation gallery, which opens its rock: music exhibition the same week.

the winning band will also be featured in nme and granted free rehearsal time in the zippo rehearsal rooms, opposite the idea generation gallery in shoreditch. footage from the rehearsal rooms will be streamed onto redchurch street and a number of industry folk have been invited to view the bands’ work for potential festival and record label signings. zippo rehearsal rooms sessions will also be granted to runner up bands.
