WE'RE LOOKING FOR THE BEST ON-SET PHOTO OF ALL TIME

Produced By magazine’s back-page photo contest is livelier than ever!  Over the past couple of years, we’ve featured explosive pyrotechnics, exacting historical re-creations, daring stunts, exotic locations and even good old on-set goofing around.  And we want to put YOUR best photos from the sets you’ve worked on in the magazine.  It doesn’t matter if you work in film, TV or digital media, or whether you were the lead producer or the assistant production coordinator—a great photo is a great photo, and we’re in the business of printing great photos.

If you think you have The Best On-Set Photo of All Time, send it on in to BOSPOAT@producersguild.org

Winning photos  should…
Prominently feature or be taken by PGA members.
Not be images of you (or anyone else) just hanging around with famous people.

Winning photos must…
Be available at a resolution of 300dpi.
Be owned either by you, or by a third party who has agreed in writing to freely license the photo for publication in Produced By.  

We can’t wait to see those fantastic pics.  Send them to BOSPOAT@producersguild.org today!

PGA DODGER DAY 2019 TICKETS AVAILABLE

We sell out every year so don't wait to long to purchase your tickets!

Come join us for our annual Producers Guild of America Dodger Day on Saturday, August 10th at 6:10pm, as your Los Angeles Dodgers take on the Arizona Diamondbacks.  The people have spoken, and we’ll be sitting again in the All You Can Eat Right Field Pavilion next to the visiting bullpen, in Section 302, Rows E thru R.

The Producers Guild has acquired 100 tickets for $46 each.  (Normally priced at $49.)   “How does this all you can eat thing work? “ you ask.  Your ticket includes unlimited Dodger Dogs, nachos, popcorn, peanuts, Coke products and water.  Alcohol is extra.  You just go downstairs under our section and get in a short cafeteria-like line and grab what you want and go back upstairs.  You can go down as many times as you want until the end of the 7th inning.  You can also go to other food vendors on the field level to buy different items.  Outside food can also be brought into the stadium, as well as sealed bottles of soda and water, up to 1 liter each.

The Dodgers have won the National League West Title for the last six years (2013-2019), and have been to the World Series the last two years, unfortunately losing to Houston Astros in 2017 and the Boston Red Sox in 2018.  If they can make it back to the World Series this year, will the third time be the charm?


Parking is $25 at the gate, or $15 in advance.  Go to www.dodgers.com.  Lots 13 & 14 on Stadium Way near the Fire Station are only $5 (at the gate or in advance.)  It is an extra 10-15 minute uphill walk to the stadium.  Parking gates open 2 ½ hours before the game (3:40pm) and Stadium gates open 2 hours before the game (4:10pm)

Batting practice usually ends around 5pm, so get there early to maybe catch a ball in our section and to avoid the parking hassles.  There is also a designated Uber and Lyft parking lot for drop offs and pick-ups.

Purchase your tickets here: https://www.producersguild.org/event/dodgerday2019
