Methods Making Madness: Young Photographers Competition


For young photographers, 14-21 year olds, living in the South West.

A competition to select the best photographs capturing the essence and process of 'creation' - a maker, artist, or element of nature - the mess, the mistakes, or progression to perfection. An exhibition of chosen photographs based on this theme will run from 3 May - 30 June 2019 in the Devon Guild's main gallery.

During the exhibition the public will be asked to vote for their top three pieces on display. The prizes include a following solo exhibition space in the Devon Guild, a two-hour masterclass in portrait or travel photography with photojournalist Suzy Bennett, plus more to be announced in the months ahead, so keep in touch! If you have any questions or need any help, please feel free to get in touch at makingmethods19@gmail.com
