Worldwide call out for submissions

This is a worldwide call out for submissions to an exciting new project:

Drink Me Event and Exhibition, Durham, UK.

You may have or know someone who has, languishing in a cupboard at home, strange and unknown bottles of alcohol or indeed, unusual non alcoholic brews. They are the kinds of bottle that turn up at a party, are bought whilst drunk on holiday or are a well-meaning present from friends. They invariably remain unopened.

If you have, we would like you to become a contributor to our event and exhibition.

To photograph your bottle, follow the instructions below:

1. Locate your bottle. Example appears on

2. Using white paper, write a couple of sentences about how you came to have it and print  

    your name and location on the paper.

3. Place it behind the bottle, or lie the bottle on top, so the writing can be seen.

4. Take a good quality, lots of megapixels, digital photo.

5. Email it to  Beth J Ross at by 7th December.

6. Tell everyone you know about the project.

We will print off the work for the exhibition, and post information and photos of the event on the Empty Shop website.

If you would like to donate your bottle to the opening party/event (you don’t have to in order to participate) please contact us on to arrange to drop it off or send it. This exhibition is open to all. Worldwide submissions welcome. Multiple submissions are allowed. No bottles containing animals, for obvious reasons.
