Rotary Monmouth are supporting the Savoy theatre in its fundraising efforts to recover from the devastating effects of the lockdowns caused by the pandemic.
We plan to produce a calendar for 2022 to appeal to visitors to encourage tourism and also residents as a representation of the best which Monmouth has to offer.
We are seeking entries from all photographers of the historic sites in and around Monmouth together with the beautiful surrounding landscapes. We would also welcome photos of pre pandemic activities eg raft race, lantern parade etc which demonstrate our vibrant town in normal times. We anticipate a Calendar with a combination of photos of history, landscapes and events which would serve as a fitting souvenir of Monmouth.
All selected photos for the calendar will have photographers’ identities duly accredited and the Savoy are kindly offering prizes to the successful entries.
“The objective is to produce a suitable collection of photos which would be attractive to any visitor as a souvenir Calendar of their visit to Monmouth and its surroundings. It will preferably include a combination of historic sites, beautiful landscapes and pre-pandemic activities. “
Normally photos will be published in A4 size but submissions will be welcome of suitable groupings of say 2 to 4 photos of the same subject for consideration on a single A4 page..
All sales proceeds will be donated to the Savoy Theatre.
The competition is OPEN to all photographers
A panel of judges will be appointed by Rotary with suitable skills which may include members of Rotary, the Savoy, or the Community.
The judging panel will chose a portfolio of photos which they consider best meets the OBJECTIVE defined above.
The judges will not enter into any discussion or correspondence regarding their decision. Their decision will be final and not subject to appeal.
The Savoy will grant £ 25 in vouchers for each page chosen for the months of the Calendar.
In addition the Savoy will grant £ 50 in vouchers for the photograph used for the Calendar Cover.
