London Living with an Alternative Twist!

Essence of Essex

Are you a proud Essex girl/guy? Or are you just a fan of the infamous county… if so, show us your Essex! We all spend so much of our lives snapping away so I’ve found a little something you can do with all of those photographs stashed away on hard drives, SD Cards and mobile phone storage!

The Essence of Essex is a photography competition being held by Firstsite, home of contemporary arts in Colchester.

If you want to enter it’s pretty darn simple….Upload your photographs here to join the online gallery and win prizes! It will run alongside Martin Parr – Work and Leisure, the first major photography exhibition to be held at Firstsite. So you can be making history with your photographs!

If you do decide to enter, here are a few important dates for your diary…

Submissions start on date: 27 June 2016
Final submission deadline: 11 September 2016
Champions’ Selection display: from 18 July until 19 September 2016
Winners announcement (Parr’s and people’s vote): 29 September 2016

I’m off to sift through all of my photos to find my favourites to enter, I’m sure I have some better than this picnic! Maybe a sunset or something of a hidden gem, afterall I do take far too many photos!

I'm Squibb Vicious, better known as Haydy!
Happiest with a craft beer in hand, eating til my heart is content or exploring somewhere new.
