A brilliant new photography competition in Cambridge is now open for entries, offering prizes and the chance for photographers to have their work offered for sale in galleries around the world.
YellowKorner Cambridge, specialists in limited edition fine art photography, and Anglia Ruskin University’s Cambridge School of Art have teamed up for the Cityscape competition, which has the theme ‘Alternative Cambridge’.
The competition is supported by the Cambridge Independentand our photo editor Keith Heppell – winner of the UK Regional Photographer of the Year award – will join the judging panel along with Joe McCullagh, Cambridge School of Art, and Glen Smith, YellowKorner Cambridge.
While Cambridge has many famous sites – with its stunning architecture and chauffeur-driven rowing boats gliding along the River Cam – YellowKorner Cambridge and the Cambridge School of Art encourage photographers to discover new parts of the city or photograph these sites renamed from a different angle.
Gallery Director Glen Smith said: “Cambridge is a vibrant city with a cultural scene that embraces the visual arts. Together with the Cambridge School of Art, we hope to nurture local talent and shine a light on new artistic visions for the city.
School Principal Joe McCullagh said, “This is a great opportunity to celebrate our talented students and alumni and inspire local youth to be the creators of the future.
Eligible entries will be featured on the YellowKorner Cambridge social media platform and reviewed by a jury based on a truly artistic approach, impact, creativity and style, lighting and balance colours.
Cambridge is one of 150 YellowKorner galleries around the world that offer a broad panorama of traditional and contemporary limited edition fine art photography. Each print is available in different formats, finishes, frames and is made to measure.
The competition is open to UK residents and four prizes are available:
- 1st – A copy of your entry work in Giant – 100 x 150cm
- 2nd – A print of your artwork in Large – 60 x 90cm
- 3rd – A print of your artwork in medium – 50 x 70cm
- Junior Prize (under 18) – A copy of your artwork in Giant – 100 x 150cm
The winners will also present their work to the YellowKorner committee.
If the committee approves the work, the piece will be sold in YellowKorner galleries around the world, subject to a contract.
