Nominet Trust is a charity which believes that the power of the internet can improve lives and communities and its inviting aspiring photographers from Cardiff to enter a national competition to be in with a chance of seeing their image displayed in a countrywide photography exhibition.
Entrants must create an image which demonstrates what the internet means to them and what difference it has made to their lives.
The winner’s photograph will complete a 24 image exhibition called Our Digital Planet, alongside evocative images depicting a range of areas where the internet has affected lives.
In addition, the winner will receive photography equipment worth over £500 and a personal photography workshop with renowned photographer David Collinwood.
Entrants must upload their image to the Our Digital Planet Group on blipfoto.com, a worldwide personal online photo journal phenomenon that connects people from all walks of life. They must also include a brief explanation of how their photo represents the impact the internet has had on their life. The photographs will be voted to win by visitors of blipfoto.com to develop the shortlist that will then be put forward to a judging panel.
The exhibition tour will arrive in Cardiff on Wednesday 26thSeptember until Monday 15th October before it also visits Brighton, Bristol, Liverpool, Glasgow and Leeds.
