MAYOR OF BATH’S PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION ‘MEMORIES OF BATH, LONELY IN LOCKDOWN’
As we pass the 100 day in lockdown point, what will you remember from this period?
The Mayor of Bath (Councillor Manda Rigby) is inviting entries to an open photographic competition, with the theme ‘Memories of Bath, Lonely in Lockdown’. Her theme for the year is ‘Combatting Loneliness, Bath the Friendly City’, and she is keen to receive your memories from the last few months.
There are three categories – age 11 and under, age 12-18, and 19 and above. The competition is aimed at all who reside, work, or study in the City of Bath, and hopes to complement the work of the Bath Record Office’s Corona Captured project, in creating a lasting memory of this time.
The Mayor commented, “Many more people have been isolated or suffered from loneliness over this period. There have also been many communities coming together to combat this. I’m looking forward to seeing any photos which encapsulate your experience of loneliness in this time.”
Entries will be accepted until the 31 July 2020 by email to email@example.com. Please include in the subject title ‘Photo Competition’ and your ‘Age Group’. Remember to include your name and a caption for your photo, which will be added to an Exhibition on the web site. One entry per person, JPEG file size limit of 2MB. Please ensure you read the full Terms and Conditions at at www.mayorofbath.co.uk/photographic-competition before you enter. (Entrants aged 15 and under must ask their parent or guardian to submit an entry on their behalf).
After the closing date the Mayor will choose 3 winners, in conjunction with Paul Gillis, professional Freelance Photographer for The Bath Chronicle. The winners will be invited (with up to 3 guests) to visit the Mayor in the Parlour at the Guildhall when the lockdown has been lifted. A small gift will also be presented (no cash prizes).
The Mayor admitted she is no photographer herself but is sharing this photo she took to encourage you to enter!
