Welcome to Ffotogallery's new weekly digest

Welcome to Ffotogallery’s new weekly digest! Whilst our offices and gallery are closed, we’re still busy working from home to bring you the latest updates, including creative activities you can take part in at home, resources you can browse online, and we’ll be sharing what arts organisations further afield have on offer.

Competition Time

From today, we’re launching a brand new online photo competition for all ages to get stuck into. Every week we’ll announce a new theme for you to work from - this week’s theme is colour. Have a good look around your house and garden (if you have one) and see what colours you can find and photograph. We’ve had a go ourselves – here are some examples above to get you inspired. Don’t be afraid to experiment!

How to enter:

Simply post your photo on Instagram, tag @ffotogallery, and use the hashtag #colour. We’ll repost our favourites on our account, and the winning image will be featured in next week’s digest.

Don’t have Instagram? Don’t worry! You can email your photos to us on [email protected], just make sure you include the name of the person who took the photo.
