February 13th - March 26th: BRITISH LIFE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS

Red Brick Building, Glastonbury, is delighted to be hosting an exhibition of fabulous photographic winners for the British Life Photography Awards.

Founded in 2014, BLPA recognises and showcases the work of established and emerging photographers, both professional and amateur of all ages, while also highlighting the relevance and importance of photography to raise awareness and inform. The awards are a unique visual celebration of British life, in all its richness and diversity, creating an enduring visual record of the spirit and essence of our nation and its people at work, play and in the community. Whether an intimate portrait, a poignant moment, or sequence of innovative and illuminating images that tell an important story.

There are ten categories covering everything from street life, rural life, portraiture to Brits on holiday and a special award for the best documentary feature. Documenting daily life has been a tradition for over a century, so just like the great documentary photographers of the past and present, we want to encourage photographers to elevate the commonplace and familiar into something compelling or fascinating through the craft, creativity and discipline of photography.

The exhibition will be open everyday at The Red Brick Building, Glastonbury, 10am-5pm.
Please check here for more specific information.

This exhibition is free to enter with a suggested donation £3 per person.

We have been able to bring this exhibition to the Red Brick Building through the generous sponsorship of Courtenay Investments.
