THE EAST RIDING Cultural Partnership – which seems to be a partnership body on the East Riding LSP (Local Strategic Partnership) – is organising a PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION to celebrate “the diversity and uniqueness” of the East Riding and to help create a “sense of place”.
Photographs could include landscapes, buildings, wildlife, characters or events from the iconic to the quirky.
The competition will be followed by an exhibition at the Beverley Art Gallery with a smaller show of the prize winners touring local communities throughout the East Riding.
The competition will run in two stages.
1. From October 2010 to September 2011 community groups will run local contests, inviting people to send in their impressions of the East Riding.
2. In autumn next year, groups will select their winners and these photos will be entered into an East Riding-wide competition, where judges will select the top 150 photographs for exhibiton at the Beverley Art Gallery. Prizes will also be awarded.
All photos will feature on a ‘Capturing the East Riding’ website to showcase local talent.
The competition intends to encourage more people to get involved in the arts and is aimed to appeal to all groups, not just photography groups. As many different organisations as possible are encouraged to get involved. It may be a sports club, or a theatre club, or maybe even a group of friends that are interested.
If your group would like to participate in the project, please contact Annabel Hanson, leisure, tourism and culture policy officer, on (01482) 391678 or at e-mail email@example.com, by Friday, 2 July 2010.
