There's more to Sheringham than somewhere "twixt pine and sea"
and this week top UK photographer Justin Bailey was focusing on the town's special charm
by helping to launch a photography competition to capture the experience. The
competition, which runs from 21st August 2006 until 16th March 2007 is open to amateur
photographers young and old, including locals and visitors to Sheringham. Short
listed entries will be exhibited in Sheringham in the spring.
Justin (31) who exhibits in Burnham Market has a passion for Sheringham and believes the
town deserves to be viewed differently. "Sheringham isn't a sleepy seaside town
- it is actually quite a dynamic place with amazing people doing great things like running
a theatre, a steam train, an art gallery and then there's the coastline, the park and the
beautiful big Norfolk sky which all adds up to a powerful, visual experience."
|A prestigious panel of judges including Justin - Lighthouse Studios; Bryn
Coulter - picture editor of the Eastern Daily Press; Michael Timewell - Head of Norfolk
Tourism; Robert Tuck - MD of MK Group; Robyn Greenacre - journalist at North Norfolk News;
Sarah Eddison - Editor of North Norfolk living and John Chapman of SheringhamPlus, will
judge entries to the competition. According to John the judges are looking for 'an
image that conveys the spirit of Sheringham and what it means to them'. A
maximum of three photograghs per entrant will be accepted, in digital or classic photo
format and entries should be sent to : Sheringham In Focus
PO Box 111
