Democracy in Action photo competition

Posted on June 1, 2012


Illustrating the power we have as Welsh citizens is the aim of a new photography competition being run by the Welsh Government

Democracy in Action is more about images that tell a story than technically good photographs, entries can even be taken on camera phones.

It will be interesting to see how people interpret the competition, and the concept of democracy. Do people see their democratic rights as focused on the Assembly, civil society, on in fact do people feel their democratic rights are somehow at stake, or not as free as they should be?

The prizes would be great for any  budding photographer: a one day photography course from Ffotogallery and a digital SLR Camera. There’s two categories: The People’s Choice, voted by the public and the Judge’s Choice. The panel includes David Hurn, the photographer that set up the School of Photography at Newport and Marc Evans, director of Snow Cake and Patagonia.
