PhotoVoice Newsletter

May 2017


Hello and welcome to our May newsletter!

We are delighted to announce that street-photographer Geraint Rowland is the winner of the March photography competition. Geraint's winning image will be featured in Professional Photography magazine. Yours could be too! The May competition is now open for entries.

If you’re thinking of getting trained-up, places are available on our September and November courses. The course is a must for anyone planning a participatory photography project. PhotoVoice Members can now also enjoy a 20-minute phone consultation for feedback and advice on their project.

Elsewhere, we take a look at some of our recent exhibitions and we start our new guest blog series ‘How Photography helped me’, with photographer Hannah Laycock. The series looks to explore the cathartic and therapeutic benefits of photography.
