LUMINATE CHALLENGE 2016
We are delighted to announce the Luminate Challenge for 2016.
Luminate, Scotland’s creative ageing festival, and Stills, Centre for Photography, are collaborating on a photographic challenge for older photographers during 2016. This is a chance for you to create something new this summer, and to share it with others around the country in October as part of Luminate.
We are inviting you to produce a single photograph to tie in with the chosen theme, which this year takes inspiration from the Festival of Architecture.
The deadline is 5th September, and full details of how to enter can be found in the Terms and Conditions document on the Luminate website.
ARCHITECTURE, MEMORY & FUTURE
The Challenge: we would like you to photograph a building that has played an important part in your own life or the life of your community.
Our cities and towns are being rebuilt, reimagined and redesigned by bold new architecture. In the process some historic, traditional buildings are preserved, but many are demolished and exist only through memory and archive.
We would like you to photograph a building that means something to you.
The building you photograph can be a home, workplace, a place of worship, or a building you visit. It can be an older building, a new building or a building facing demolition. We are looking for photographs of architecture that go beyond the picture postcard buildings. Think beyond capturing just the building - capture the spirit of the building and tell us about its connection with you and your community.
To inspire you we have commissioned photographer Chris Leslie to shoot some architectural photographs which he has shared along with some helpful hints and tips on approaching architectural photography.
A panel of judges will select a range of submissions that will be exhibited across Scotland, as well as being exhibited alongside Chris Leslie’s work at Stills, Centre for Photography in October 2016. Other selected images will be shared online on Luminate’s website.
The deadline for submissions is Monday 5th September 2016 and full details of how to enter can be found on the Luminate website.
- Luminate will accept photographs created on any camera device.
- Digital images submitted via the email address must be no larger than 8MB in file size.
