April 27th/28th 2019 - Photography Exhibition


The excitement of Christmas and the New Year has come and gone but there is still much to look forward to and celebrate even though this is the season of cold, rain and wind! It is also the season when we see the beauty of frost fringing the fallen leaves, mist in the valleys and the first signs of Spring; a great opportunity to take photographs of one of the most beautiful areas in Cornwall and enter them in the Wild Roseland Photography Exhibition sponsored by the Roseland Festival.

The Exhibition will be held during the Festival on the 27th and 28th April in Gerrans Parish Memorial Hall.

The main aim of the Exhibition is to celebrate the beauty and diversity of this amazing area in which we live. Some of you may remember the stunning photographs taken by the Roseland Academy and their Partnership Primary Schools. They will again be joining us and we look forward to some wonderful photographs. However, children who are not taking part in the schools’ project are very welcome to enter as we will have a special section just for them.

The categories are as follows:

  • Trees and Woodland
  • Creeks, Rivers and Marsh
  • Under the Sea (for those with a waterproof camera). This would include rock pools.
  • Rocks and Rugged Cliffs
  • Nature in Your Garden
  • Flora and Fauna (including insects etc)
  • The Four Seasons

There are a few simple rules:

  1. The photographer should be a Roseland or Tregony resident or have strong links with the area.
  2. The photograph should have been taken on the Roseland.
  3. Photographs can be taken with cameras, tablets or phones.
  4. They can be in black and white or colour.
  5. Photographs should be A3 size or less on photographic paper, please.
  6. The use of Photoshop is allowed but not copies from the Internet.
  7. You can enter up to 4 photographs if you wish.

The Exhibition will culminate in the presentation of prizes for the various categories but you do not have to be a brilliant photographer to submit an entry. The Exhibition is much more about the capturing the beauty and diversity of this amazing coast and countryside.

While there are a number of great prizes, The Exhibition is primarily a showcase for the beauty and diversity of the Roseland itself. You do not have to be a technically brilliant photographer with expensive equipment to enter. Our first exhibition was a great success but we would like 2019 to be even bigger and better.
