Civic Trust Cymru are launching a photography competition in Bridgend, with the support of Bridgend Civic Trust. We are calling for local people to tell us what you think good, bad and ugly, about Bridgend town by sending us photos. The competition opened for entries on Monday 19th September.
The competition will celebrate what is great and identify what could be improved in Bridgend town. We are looking for photos of the good such as buildings, building detailing, unusual weather vanes that you think only you notice, secret alleyways, public art, band stands that you think are important, quirky or individual gardens, iron railings, memorials, street signage, shopfronts, and lighting. But we also want to see the bad or ugly such as the collection of cigarette stumps at a building entrance, peeling paint, unloved corners of Bridgend and also bad/ugly bins, street signage, shopfronts, and/or lighting. This competition is open to everyone, whether you visit, work, or live in Bridgend, and we really do want to see the bad as well as the good (but please only photos of places, not people).
We will judge entries in the following categories: age 5-12, age 13-17 and age 18+, and invite everyone who enters to submit a photo in the good, bad/ugly categories. Anyone can enter, whether you live in Bridgend or not. Entries will be judged by an appointed panel, and there will be prizes for the winner in each category. All eligible photographs entered will feature in the exhibition at Carnegie House, Bridgend, on the 19th and 20th of November, as well as online.
Photos need to be new, rather than historic, and photos must be at least 2 MB in resolution. Please include your name, address, age, and contact details, as well as the name of the location you have photographed. To submit your photographs please email them by Monday 7th November firstname.lastname@example.org, take them to Celtic Camera Centre to be printed and collected, or post them to:
