PETER JONES WINS THE #URBANWALES COMPETITION

It was a great pleasure to announce Peter Jones as winner of our #urbanwales competition in the final hours of The EYE International Photography Festival in Aberystwyth on Sunday 2nd October 2016. Delegates at the Festival voted for their favourite image from the six ticket winners on show in the main foyer area of Aberystwyth Arts Centre - and Peter's great mono image of an elderly couple grabbing a nap had the majority vote! Peter wins a free annual subscription for a Pixelrights website to host his photography portfolio.

What is #urbanwales?


What is #urbanwales?


 

AN EXPERIMENTAL PROJECT FOR 2016.

Over the last twelve months of producing Ffoton, we have been struck by the sheer number of talented photographers from all parts of Wales who are shooting great work in all manner of photographic genres, but who rarely show their images publicly.

As part of a project to promote some of this unseen work, Ffoton would like to introduce Urban Wales - an initiative to highlight contemporary photography from Wales.

Whether you live, work or just visit any Welsh city, town or village Urban Wales will allow us to highlight your creative interpretation of the public spaces and people around you.

So, from today, we’re inviting you to post your favourite images shot in Wales to either your Flickr or Instagram account.

All we ask is that each image has:

  • a short title;
  • location name; and
  • is tagged with #urbanwales or #trefolcymru

Using these hashtags will allow anyone to easily search for and watch the Ffoton project unfold.

That’s all for now. 

But we’ll have more to share on the project over the coming weeks!

Get posting Ffotonistas!

UrbanWales Show


UrbanWales Show


Ffoton Wales are delighted to be back at The Littleman Coffee Co.
for our new 3 month #urbanwales takeover!

We have some great gritty photography lined up 4th April through to 2nd July in Littleman - both upstairs and downstairs.

Our new show presents 3 very talented but stylistically different photographers from Wales who enjoy shooting creative Urban images.
And downstairs, we have yet more photographers who have been busy with our #urbanwales hashtag on Instagram and Flickr.
We're also excited about the style of the show - we think it'll have some impact!
