The National Theatre’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in The Night-Time and London School of Photography collaborate for the LSP 2014 Awards Photography Competition.
On Tuesday 2nd December 2014, the London School of Photography, in partnership with the National Theatre’s production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, held an awards ceremony for the 2014 LSP Awards Photography Competition at ME London.
Alessia Francesca Muoio, 25 years old from Calabria in the South of Italy, was chosen from over 1000 entries as the overall winner and was presented with her prize by Anna Schmitz, General Manager of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the Gielgud Theatre. Alessia’s prize includes a course at the London School of Photography, as well as tickets to see the show and a backstage tour.
Alessia Francesca Muoio is a young Italian photographer. She began to take pictures 2012 and earlier this year decided to move to London to pursue her photography.
Alessia said: “This image is part of a series of photographs I’ve entitled Inside of You, everything is hidden inside the human eyes. I am here in London to study photography and I am really pleased about this exciting opportunity to share my work”
Anna Schmitz said: “We are delighted to have been involved in the London School of Photography’s competition and to see such inspiring and revealing photographs. On behalf of the National Theatre, I am proud to present the prize to Alessia and look forward to welcoming her to the Gielgud Theatre where she will see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and meet with our Company.”
This year’s LSP Awards took inspiration from both the play and best-selling book, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, by Mark Haddon. Entrants were asked to submit photographs inspired by the word “Curious”. A selection of photographs from the competition will be displayed at an exhibition at ME London for the next month.
Winner of seven Olivier Awards, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is based on Mark Haddon’s award-winning novel, adapted by Simon Stephens and directed by Marianne Elliott. The show continues in London’s West End at the Gielgud Theatre, has recently opened on Broadway, and a new production will begin a tour of the UK and Ireland this month.
