A Community Photography Project

If you were asked to take a photograph of someone or something which sums up Pontypridd for you, what would it be?  That’s the challenge of ‘Picturing Ponty’.

Individuals and groups are invited to submit photos which say something about ‘our community’.  It could be something – or someone – to celebrate (perhaps an unsung ‘local hero’ or a favourite place). It might be a picture which says something about Pontypridd’s needs, its assets, its beauty or its history? Pictures may be town views, or action shots; they may be portraits or feature groups of people;  they may capture events, special places or buildings.  Participants will have the opportunity to explain why they chose to take their picture in up to 100 words.

The project culminates in a photographic exhibition in St David’s Uniting Church, Gelliwastad Rd, from 15- 29th March 2014 and a concurrent programme of workshops and events.

Meanwhile, follow Picturing Ponty on Facebook and on Twitter to keep in touch with news of events and updates on the project.

How to submit your photo.

Photos need to be submitted by e-mail by 1st February 2014. A single photo, a group of pictures or a collage can be submitted.  Permission must be obtained from those photographed, for the picture to be exhibited and displayed on relevant websites. Details of the rules and conditions of entry can be found here.

  1. Lovely exhibition. I enjoyed looking at and trying to locate lots of the photos. Hope it’s not a one off exhibition.
