Weekly Digest - 20/4/20

Welcome to the fourth edition of Ffotogallery’s weekly digest! Whilst our offices and gallery are closed, we’re still busy working from home to bring you the latest updates, including creative activities you can take part in at home, resources you can browse online, and we’ll be sharing what arts organisations further afield have on offer.

Competition Time

Congratulations to last week’s winner of our #windowsill photo competition, Konrad Gwóźdź! Thanks to everybody who entered – over the coming weeks, we’ll be setting up an online gallery of all of the entries we receive, so keep an eye out on our ‘Channel’ page.

This week we have a brand new theme – pet portraits! Whether they’re furry or scaly, big or small, we want to see them. Try taking photos close up for detail, or far away – don’t be afraid to experiment!

How to enter:

Simply post your photo on Instagram, tag @ffotogallery, and use the hashtag #petportrait. We’ll repost our favourites on our account, and the winning image will be featured in next week’s digest.

Don’t have Instagram? Don’t worry! You can email your photos to us on [email protected], just make sure you include the name of the person who took the photo.

The Place I Call Home Online

Whilst the physical aspect of The Place I Call Home has come to an end, the project continues online! Although the exhibition in Sharjah was due to run until the end of May, our partners at Maraya Art Centre have created additional resources like this 360° virtual tour, this film featuring some of the artists and a brand new online photo competition with prizes to be won. Additionally, Ffotogallery has produced a legacy publication, which you can now view online here. Visit the ‘Stories’ page of the project website for the most recent updates.
