Photographic CompetitionThe Electric Picture House in Wotton-under-Edge has announced a new photographic competition in a bid to get twelve stunning pictures for its next calendar.

The pictures for its last five calendars have been supplied by a handful of very keen supporters of the cinema.

But this year the proposal is that the task of finding suitable and photogenic shots of Wotton be opened up to local enthusiasts.

The organiser of the competition is Trevor Mason who is Chairman of the Electric Cinema Company – the charitable wing of the Electric Picture House and which is affiliated to the Wotton Recreational Trust. He said: “We thought it would be a good idea to bring a bit of variety to our next calendar by seeing just how many different ways there are to depict the beauty of our town and surrounding countryside. If it is a success I would like to make it an annual event.”

The plan is to exhibit the best 100 pictures in June from which twelve will be selected for use in the calendar. The best overall picture will win a £50 voucher kindly supplied by Clifton Cameras of Dursley.

Further details of the rules, how to submit pictures and when and where the judging will take place can be found on the cinema’s website, www.wottoneph.co.uk
