Isle of Wight seeks Photographer of the Year

Inspired by mainstream Photographer of the Year contests, this event will see Isle of Wight-based photographers go head to head in a stunning display that will showcase the local talent and has the potential to cast the island into an entirely new light.

Commencing tomorrow (January 11th) and running all the way through to March 30th, the competition is noted for being almost entirely without limits when it comes to the image submitted.

The only stipulations are that photographs were taken in 2013 and have some kind of impact, with creatives free to contribute pictures of landscapes, seascapes, wildlife, action, people, macros or any other subject.

In the end, the selection was constructed around the theme 'Every Picture Tells a Story', a particularly intriguing statement that is likely to result in some truly fascinating submissions being displayed.

Organiser IW Digital Imaging Group and its supporters the Isle of Wight Photo Agency, Olympus, Pioneer Wines and Style of Wight are said to have put together a truly inspiring exhibition.

Taking place at the Dimbola Museums and Galleries, situated at Terrace Lane at Freshwater Bay, the event is open from 10am until 4pm, Tuesday to Sunday.

When a winner of the competition itself is chosen at the end of the exhibition, they will be invited to return to the venue in autumn 2014 to open their very own solo exhibition, with the intention of the contest being to support burgeoning young talent.

With such a beautiful location surrounding the artists, visitors can expect an in-depth look at the island's unique landscapes and stunning seascapes.

However, with such a broad criteria for entry, it is reasonable to assume that some of the selections may be unanticipated. Expect the unexpected, art lovers.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801681171-ADNFCR
