OffBeat seeking photographs for upcoming July 2012 edition

OffBeat, a monthly publication that focuses on New Orleans and Louisiana music and culture, is looking for music and food-related photographs for its July 2012 edition. Submissions featuring the following are sought as soon as possible:

  • Live performance shots of the Original Pinettes Brass Band
  • Photographs of Helen Gillet (not necessarily performance shots) from the last three months only, including any shots from her CD release party at the Allways Lounge on Friday, June 15.
  • A shot from the 2011 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, if it is more than a tight performance shot of one act. Photos of one of the performers for the 2012 Essence Music Festival, scheduled for July 5-8, would also be welcome.

If you have photos that fit the bill here, please send thumbnails to OffBeat Art Director Elsa Hahne, and do so in short order.

The monthly magazine pays $30 per published photo. OffBeat is publication that is distributed for free throughout the New Orleans metro area, with copies also sent to paid subscribers throughout the United States and other countries. Photos are also published on the magazine’s website.
