Weekly Digest - 27/4/20

Welcome to the fifth edition of Ffotogallery’s weekly digest! Whilst our offices and gallery are closed, we’re still busy working from home to bring you the latest updates, including creative activities you can take part in at home, resources you can browse online, and we’ll be sharing what arts organisations further afield have on offer.

Competition Time

Congratulations to last week’s winner of our #petportrait photo competition, Lewis Cole (@mred1tor)! Thank you to everybody who has taken the time to send in their entries.

The new theme for this week’s competition is selfies. We want you to be as imaginative as possible when it comes to this theme, and we understand that not everyone likes to photograph themselves – so why not get creative and use reflections, shadows or even an object or a space that says a lot about you. Don’t be afraid to experiment!

How to enter:

Simply post your photo on Instagram, tag @ffotogallery, and use the hashtag #selfie. We’ll repost our favourites on our account, and the winning image will be featured in next week’s digest.

Don’t have Instagram? Don’t worry! You can email your photos to us on [email protected], just make sure you include the name of the person who took the photo.
