Food For Thought

entries close 5pm, 27th May 2015


Exhibition 4th June - 9th August 2015
Whether taken literally or more figuratively “Food for Thought” should give everyone something to think about! And more importantly something to photograph!
Perhaps a tasty teatime treat or an edible exposé that catches your imagination (and your eye).
Whatever the angle, we want to see what “Food for Thought” means to you.
Guest Judge: Jacqui van Dam
