Bradford Pride of Place Project Photo Competition

Tue, 14th Apr, 2015

The Caravan Gallery, in association with Impressions Gallery and Fuse Art Space ask: How do you see Bradford?

What is it like to live in this city? Is the UK’s Capital of Curry ugly or beautiful? Have you seen a sign or shop display that made you laugh or a street scene that amused you? Would you like to draw attention to any unsung attractions - or unattractions - that escape the notice of the average visitor or resident?



The Caravan Gallery’s Bradford Pride of Place Project will be sweeping across the city this summer, asking people to take a closer ‘warts and all’ look at  where they live and to define what makes it unique and extraordinary. As part of this, we’re inviting you to take part in an open submission photography competition. The competition is free to enter and open to anyone living in Bradford and its surrounding areas.

The Caravan Gallery want to create a snapshot of the reality - and surreality - of life in Bradford. 

Jan Williams of The Caravan Gallery says, ‘We want to encourage the people of Bradford to view their city with fresh eyes, to astonish and surprise us with their observations from a local and personal perspective. Look beyond the obvious and show us what’s special, unusual or perhaps typical of everyday life in this part of the world.’

The most original and captivating images will be selected by The Caravan Gallery, Impressions Gallery and Fuse Art Space. In June 2015 the winning entries will printed by our local sponsor ProAm Imaging, and displayed in the Bradford Pride of Place Project hub as part of an evolving exhibition featuring local images by The Caravan Gallery.

The photography competiton is just one strand of activity in the Bradford Pride of Place Project which will be taking place across Bradford this summer. Click here to find out more.
