The Harwich International Shanty Festival are running a photographic competition to coincide with this year’s shanty festival , October 9th, 10th and 11th. The theme of the competition is “Harwich Then and Now”. Thanks to the generosity of the Harwich Society we have a number of old photographs of views around Harwich. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to take a 2015 view of the areas shown in the old photographs, from as near as possible to the spot where the original was taken .
Entry is free and your photos, digital only, should be sent via email(one per email) to [email protected]. You may enter as many times as you wish but due to file size each entry should be via a separate email. Closing date for receipt of entries has been extended to 21st October. We aim to produce an e-book as a result of the competition.
The winners will receive a copy of the e-book and a large art poster showing their photo alongside the original print. The e-book will be available to purchase via download. It will also be possible to purchase a hard copy book of the photographs, details will be given via the website after the festival.
Thanks are also due to ARTPHOTOPRO for their assistance with this project.
