“We Love the Coast 2017”

A Chance to Have Your Work Framed and Displayed in a Cornwall Gallery


Creative professional and amateur photographers from around the world are invited to enter the inaugral Alverton Penzance International Photographic Contest entitled "We Love the Coast." This contest is hosted by the prestigious Alverton Gallery, Penzance, located in the heart of "Poldark Country" and Cornwall's world-famous art scene. Like many competitions of its kind there are cash prizes and certificates for the winning images but in addition the gallery will frame and display, at no cost to the photographer, the best ten images of the contest within the gallery's exhibition space as well as displaying the same ten images on the gallery's website and social media. These unique-to-Cornwall prizes will give the photographers exposure at a busy location close to the celebrated Penlee House and Newlyn Galleries, Penzance, and prints of the images will be offered for sale to the general public (terms and conditions apply).
So email your best coastal shots to PenzanceSubmissions@gmail.com
We look forward to seeing your work on the gallery walls.


£75 cash prize and Gold certificate for first prize, £50 cash prize and Silver Certificate for second prize, £25 cash prize and Bronze certificate for third prize, Honourable Mention certificates for the remaining top ten winners, plus all the top ten entries will each have their image displayed in a leading Cornwall gallery and on its website and social media.
