Fest Norwood Photography Competition

A community art project

The Fest Norwood Photography Competition (closing date 8 August 2020)


(Shortlist announced on 9 August 2020 – winning entry announced on 15 August 2020)

We’re pleased to announce the launch of our Photography Competition, a community project aimed at encouraging as many people as possible to take images of their view of life in West Norwood and surrounding areas.


We welcome everyone to turn your lenses to your surroundings and capture what makes our community special. This could be a portrait of someone who inspires you, a place you have fond memories of, a beautiful location that you like to walk past, or even your cat. So long as the images have been taken local to the area, we welcome all areas of photography including landscape, portraiture, architectural, still life, sports and fashion. Here are a couple of example images:

Images shortlisted will be shown on the South London Theatre digital screen for all to see, with a prize for the winning entry!
