It’s gruelling, it’s not very well paid – but we’re sure you’ll agree that the results are extraordinary.

  • CuePix has opened its vault of almost 5 000 images taken during the National Arts Festival to the public. The images are free to use – but please credit CuePix and the photographer by name. If you would like a high-res image, contact our Media Office:

We’ve asked members of the CuePix team to choose their favourite photographs of the past fortnight. Here is Jane Berg’s selection:
