I see you see me through your camera...
Redferns, the organisers of the David Bowie photographic retrospective, David Bowie: Pin Up, have kindly agreed to a special BowieNet only view at the gallery on the afternoon of Saturday June 25th.
This means that a group of around fifty BowieNetters will be able to browse the pictures in relative comfort, without having to rub shoulders with the hoi polloi. };-)
Spaces are strictly limited and will be selected randomly from a list of those of you wishing to attend...presuming there are fifty of you who would want to be there on that particular day.
I'll treat this like a normal contest and we'll leave the books open until the end of May to give you plenty of time to be sure you can definitely attend before you put your name forward.
Once you're positive you will be able to make it on the day, send an e-mail to me at TotalBlamBlam@davidbowie.com with a subject line of "I wanna be at the BowieNet view".
Usual rules apply: Only one entry per BowieNet account and please remember to enter using your BowieNet e-mail or at least supply your BowieNet user name.

I'll post the list of fifty winners at the beginning of June. Speaking of winners...
