The Ness – Rise & Shine Photography Competition

In association with The Ness, the UK’s most easterly park residents and visitors to Lowestoft are encouraged to submit images on the subject ‘Rise & Shine’ for a new photography competition. 

In partnership with Lowestoft Photographic Club, the images will be showcased online and on Facebook with the winners featured as part of an exhibition in the new space at Lowestoft Central Parcel Office at the Train Station.The winners will also feature in The Lowestoft Journal. The exhibition will run from 23 – 26 August over the bank holiday weekend.

The competition, which is open from Monday 20 May with a closing date of noon Monday 5 August, is open to everyone. To enter, simply email your image with the subject header ‘Rise & Shine’ to lowestoftimageproject@gmail.com, along with your name and mobile number. The images will go online within 2 days and be available on Facebook for likes and shares with the most popular as the winners.

Lowestoft Photographic Club members are compiling an archive of contemporary, positive, forward looking images of the town which are available at www.lowestoftimageproject.co.uk. Documenting the people, places and industry which make Lowestoft a unique place with stories to tell, the resource shines a light on a year’s worth of activity in a busy seaside town. The exhibition and archive are made possible with funding from Lowestoft Town Council and the Coastal Community Fund via East Suffolk Council as part of The Ness diary of events for 2019.
