Amateur and professional photographers are invited to enter pictures for ‘A Moment in Time 2020-2022’ as part of the Art in the Park Gallery project.
‘Because people have had more time than ever to see loved ones after lockdown and lots of time to appreciate nature, a lot of people will know they have immortalised a moment in time,’ said National Trust vice-president Sara Lampitt.
Entries should cover any aspect of island life, and the photos will be preserved for future generations.
Photo entries can be in colour or black and white and must be in high-resolution.
Ms Lampitt said the idea came out of a treasured moment she had with her own family.
‘It was literally a moment in time that I captured in a photo which was very funny, and it was the first time we got together as a family after lockdown. That photo I took really captured a hilarious moment that we wouldn’t have had if we weren’t all so excited to see each other again.’
She said she expected islanders to take a keen interest in the exhibition.
‘I think it will be full – I would be very surprised if people weren’t interested.’
One entry per person is allowed, and if the photograph is accepted for exhibition there will be a £10 entry fee.
Entrants should outline whether they are an amateur or professional when submitting and photos must be suitable for A4 in landscape or portrait.
Software corrections should be minimal and photo editing will only be accepted where it has been explicitly indicated.
Photos are accepted up until 1 June and should be submitted with a brief description of up to 30 words to email@example.com.
The exhibition will run from 6 August to 2 September at the Folk and Costume Museum at Saumarez Park.
