Junior Sports Photography Competition
October 31, 2011
Sponsored by Hodgson Elkington Chartered Surveyors.
The Junior Sports Photography Competition aims to illustrate junior sporting activity in Lincolnshire and East Nottinghamshire. The open brief attracted a range of images from both adult and junior entrants who submitted images showing a range of activities including Swimming, football, lacrosse, water sports, athletics and school sports days. Prizes will be awarded for junior and senior age groups with a prize given for The People’s Choice as decided by votes from gallery visitors. Come along and have your say.
Hodgson Elkington launched The Junior Sports Programme in 2002 with the aim to encourage junior sports and youth development in Lincolnshire and East Nottinghamshire. This exhibition is a celebration of the sporting activities of our younger members of society.
The exhibition is open 10 am – 4 pm every day from 31 October 2011 until 05 November 2011.
The competition attracted entries from throughout the county with 45 submissions selected for exhibition at Carre Gallery.
The exhibition was judged by Christopher Hodgson of Sleaford Gallery Arts Trust Ltd, and Stephen Bradford of Junior Sports Programme Trust. Judging was extremely difficult as a result of the high standard of entries. A particular surprise was the number and quality of junior entries, several of which were directly competitive with the work of adults.
