JUE : NEXT GEN is a photography competition that is open to enthusiastic hobby, amateur and professional photographers from all over China. First started by JUE | Music + Art Festival in 2011, this year’s competition is sponsored by ospop., China’s first workwear fashion clothing brand. The theme of this year’s JUE : NEXT GEN is “Work,” inspired by ospop.’s rugged aesthetic and their commitment to displaying the beauty of work — austere, diligent, proud and creative — in their product and brand. If you can recognize the beauty of work all around you, show it off in the competition! Our panel of expert judges will select 15 finalists, who will have their entries displayed in Shanghai’s Central Studios from March 9 – 23. On March 23, 2012, we’ll announce the winner, runner-up and people’s choice award at Central Studios during the JUE : NEXT GEN closing party.

We ask ourselves: what else can kick off the festivities better than an arts & crafts bonanza? So here inBeijing, we will be having a Warm Up To JUE Market on March 10th (Saturday). The market will take place in Yuanfen~Flow, a cool space located in Beijing’s unique art headquarters 798. If you are interested in selling market/fair products such as arts & crafts, delectable edibles, captivating displays/exhibits or more, we would love to have YOU as a participating vendor! We’ll be serenaded by international and local musical acts throughout the day, and surrounded by screenings, exhibits and art installations.
A limited number of booths are available for booking NOW. Cost for a small booth is 300RMB, while large booths are 500RMB. We suggest that vendors also donate 10% of their profits to our official JUE Festival charity partner Morning Tears, but of course, this is completely optional.
So, if you are interested in being part of the Warm Up to JUE Market, please contact us as soon as possible at email@example.com. The deadline for inquiries is approaching fast, so get in touch now!
