The digital photography exhibition proved such a success in the past that we wanted to make it into a more diverse creative experience.
Entries are now being received for the 2012 Harper Adams digital photography and art exhibition.
Talented amateur photographers with a Shropshire link are being asked to submit up to four photographs for consideration, fitting one of two themes: ‘Nature’s Olympians’ or ‘Rural Shropshire’s Finest’.
Photographs will be displayed as a slideshow during the event, which is taking place on November 8 in the Regional Food Academy on campus.
It is the third time that the event has been held, but this year, the invitation has been extended to include local artists.
Event organiser, Janine Heath, said: “The digital photography exhibition proved such a success in the past that we wanted to make it into a more diverse creative experience.
“We are hoping that everyone from school children to semi-professional artists will take up the opportunity to display their work at the exhibition.
“We’ve chosen two themes this year- one encompassing the 2012 Olympic Games, the other celebrating the link Harper Adams has with Shropshire.”
Both photographs and art installations will be on show from 12pm on the day, with a celebratory reception event scheduled for the early evening.
A panel of judges will be selecting the top photographic images, with winners announced during the evening reception by organisers, Simon Keeble and Janine Heath.
Photographs will need to be submitted by October 8 and arrangements made for any art installations, also by this date. The theme is applicable only to photographic entries, art exhibits may be of any subject, as long as deemed suitable for the event.
Janine added: “As always with this event, the themes are open to interpretation, although we would like people to try to consider the work that Harper Adams undertakes, and how their photographs might represent that.
“The event isn’t about making a profit as it’s free to enter and attend, it’s about reaching out to the local community and showing our support.”
