Tweet your best images on the theme ‘Communities, Collectives & Collaboration’ and win up to £100 worth of Wex vouchers!
To celebrate our sponsorship of the internationally renowned Brighton Photo Biennial 2014, the UK’s largest festival of photography, Wex Photographic is launching a brand new competition based on the theme of this year’s event, Communities, Collectives & Collaboration.
Running from Saturday 4 October to Sunday 2 November, the Brighton Photo Biennial attracts over 100,000 visitors to the Brighton and Hove area and beyond, who gather to celebrate photography in all its forms - as prints, projections, pixels and pages. Based on the theme Communities, Collectives & Collaboration, BPB14 is an ambitious array of exhibitions, events, talks, tours, workshops and screenings, taking place in public spaces, galleries, pop-up venues and online. As part of the festival’s unique ‘learning and participation’ programme, the Wex team will be hosting two distinct workshops at the University of Brighton’s Faculty of the Arts.
To enter the competition, simply tweet up to five images that reflect the theme, and make sure to include #WexBPB14 so that we can find your entry. Your images do not have to be taken at the festival itself, so feel free to submit any of your images that you feel best fit the theme. Alternatively, post your images to our Facebook page, using the same hashtag. Click here for more information on the festival.
