With so much natural beauty in our region, Gloucester photographers have ample inspiration for their art form. This annual photographic competition captures perceptions and interpretations of Gloucester and its people and is always hotly-contested as the winner gets front page on the local phone directory. This year the rules allow the photographs in all but one of the categories to be taken from anywhere in the world, as long as they have been taken within the last two years and not have been exhibited in any other exhibition or venue prior to this competition.

Categories:

Gloucester Postcards (NEW!)
Prizes in this category are sponsored by Gloucester Visitor Information Centre, this is a new category where the subject matter must be local. Photos are limited to a standard 6”x4” format.
Faces I have met
This portraiture category allows you to capture the essence of some of the interesting and diverse characters that you may have met locally or somewhere on your travels.
Lie of the land
This is a very open category that allows you to explore the differing landscape features of places anywhere from our own backyards to the many fascinating landscapes elsewhere.
The Natural Environment
For a more in-depth photography experience of nature, capture the flora and fauna in a truly individual and explicit manner.
Man-made
Focus on obscure or everyday objects and use your photographic skills to capture the essence of the myriad of man-made objects that surround our lives wherever we may find ourselves.
Not Your Normal Photo
A time to really test your artistic flare. Experiment with a more abstract or conceptual approach to your photography, pushing the limits of what is achievable through digital technology.
Absence of Colour
Black and white photography (or even partial colour absence) has a unique way of highlighting and capturing the essence of a subject. Use your imagination to create stunning photographs highlighted by the distinct lack of colour.
Junior section:
This category is open to all people under 18 years of age. There is no specific category genre so feel free to experiment in any of the above listed categories. The photograph however must still adhere to the rules and conditions that apply regarding subject, timing, framing and exhibition in the senior section.
