£2000 cash first prize – “Deserted Places”

£2000 cash first prize plus large bundle of other prizes


Following the success of our previous contests we have now enlisted the support of six sponsors, resulting in a greatly increased bundle of prizes. The theme of this contest is "Deserted Places." Whilst this is open to interpretation we would particularly like to see images of urban or rural decay such as disused buildings, derelict sites, abandoned cemeteries, ancient ruins, "haunted houses" and so on. Get snapping but don't have nightmares!


First Prize: £2000 cash, free copy of ON1 Photo Raw 2017, 12 months Skillshare Scholarship, £60 Bob Books voucher.
Second Prize: £200 cash, free copy of ON1 Photo Raw 2017, free Topaz software add-ons and a free Flothemes web theme.
Third Prize: £100 cash, $50 Rooky Nook gift card.
In addition all top ten winners will be displayed on the Alverton Gallery's website and social media.
