Open to professionals and amateurs, a major photography competition has been launched with a £5,000 prize and the chance to exhibit at a renowned photography festival.

With many 7dayshop.com customers being photographers and enjoying taking pictures, we wanted to let you know about this competition organised by friends at the Guernsey Photography Festival.

It’s open to all photographers, professionals and amateurs alike, who have developed a coherent, artistically driven body of work. There is no set theme.

“We hope that we will see submissions from some really interesting artists as this is a great opportunity to gain valuable exposure,” said Guernsey Photography Festival Director Jean-Christophe Godet.

“We are fortunate to have a jury of well-known figures to judge the work. This includes François Cheval, Director of Musée Nicéphore Niépce, the Magnum photographer Mark Power and Emma Bowkett, the Arts Editor of the Financial Times.” Mr Godet is the fourth member of the jury.

The international competition is also being supported by Raven Russia Ltd and Glynn Hirsch, the firm’s CEO, said: “The Guernsey Photography Festival is now an established event that has national and international recognition.

“This prize will help raise the island’s profile abroad and will further cement Guernsey’s place as a centre of excellence for business and cultural activities. We are proud to be a part of it.”
