Sleaford, Hidden in Plain Sight – photo competition

21st February 2017

A Photography Competition Celebrating Sleaford’s Hidden Gems

This spring the Sleaford and District Civic Trust, working in co-operation with the Sleaford Gallery Arts Trust and supported by artsNK will be holding a photographic competition – Hidden in Plain Sight.

The theme of the competition is straightforward: take a photograph that that highlights a part of Sleaford – a building, a structure or an aspect of everyday life – that goes unnoticed by the casual observer. Ideally the photograph will be taken from within the centre of Sleaford but consideration will be given to extraordinary pictures taken outside of this area so long as it is within the demesnes of the Sleaford District.

The format is simple. Entries – either printed or digital – must be received no later than the 25th April. These entries will be narrowed down by a panel of three judges using predetermined criteria to 60 finalists which will be professionally mounted and will form a two-week exhibition in the Carre Gallery from the 5th of June 2017. These finalists will be invited to a preview evening at the gallery where the prize ceremony will take place.

Entrants will be sorted by age group – under 13, under 18 and over 18, with the best three pictures in each group winning a prize. Each competitor is invited to submit up to three entries.

The competition is being sponsored by members of Sleaford and District Civic Trust, the Sleaford Gallery Arts Trust and Hodgson Estates.

Entry forms can be collected from Carre Gallery, 29 Carre Street or downloaded from the Sleaford and District Civic Trust website,
