The Equinox Experience Admission Token

The Equinox Experience Admission Token

25.00

This TOKEN will grant you the admission to THE EQUINOX EXPERIENCE Flickr private group where you can submit up to 3 photos.
    •    YOU NEED TO BUY THIS TOKEN FOR THE SUBMISSION.

 

NEW - FACEBOOK: By purchasing the token you also have access to the secret group on Facebook. This is for two reasons: A. Many people have trouble accessing and posting on Flickr. B. Once the Flickr group has been set as "Private" is no longer possible to change it to "Public" and this does not allow, once the competition, to show the photos that have been submitted.


NEW - DEDICATED CLOUD: We also know that the images of Facebook lose quality and resolution. For this reason we have organized a dedicated Cloud where to send your photos in High-Resolution. We chose this solution for speeding up the creation of the video for their first public performance. REMEMBER: ALL of your pictures will be featured in the projection and not just the 20 selected by the jury.


PLEASE NOTE
The fee is considered as a contribution for the expenses of prints, framing, organization, installations, catalog and rent of the exhibition space for the THE EQUINOX EXPERIENCE.
