On the 1st of July, the Artisan is launching a major Photography Competition in which the winners will have the chance to have their work displayed on the Artisan ‘Art Wall’ which is situated to the left of the Solent Showcase gallery.

There will be 13 frames in total that will be used to display the winning images and not only that but the overall winner will also win a £35 Gift Voucher from London Camera Exchange in Civic Centre Road and an Artisan hamper.

The competition has one theme and that is Southampton. A fantastic city steeped in history with an incredible mix of old and modern buildings and some lovely spacious parks, and all of that is just in the city centre!

There is plenty of photographic inspiration across the city from Netley Abbey to the Western Docks, Southampton Common and beyond.

To make this a bit more fun the competition is split into 6 categories, which are, PEOPLE, LANDSCAPE, SOUTHAMPTON SELFIE, URBAN/STREET, JUNIORS (ages 5-10 and 11-16) and DIGITAL CREATIVE. There will be 2 winnings photographs selected from each category and an overall winner so that’s 13 chances to win

The competition launches on July 1 and ends on July 14.

The photos will be displayed on the Daily Echo website and you will get to vote on the OVERALL winner from a carefully selected ‘Top 10’ via a public vote/poll.

The winners will be announced on Friday 28 July.

Good Luck!
