Photo Letchworth, is a new photography competition and exhibition at the Broadway Gallery, showcasing the photographic talents from residents of Letchworth and the surrounding area. The 21 works currently on display were selected by a guest panel of judges from over 300 entries that were submitted over a 5 week period in Summer 2019.
The guest panel consisted of award-winning photographer Chris Frazer Smith, curator Cassie Beadle (The Cob Gallery, London) and print sales specialist Anstice Oakeshott (The Photographer’s Gallery, London). Each entry was assessed against 3 criteria; experimentation, composition and subject matter. Over the course of the exhibition the public voted to decide which photograph would awarded the 2019 Photo Letchworth prize. The results of the competition were as follows;
First Prize - Romani Boys by Judith Duddle
First runner-up - Young Woman on a Bus, Moscow 1986 by Rod Shone
Second runner-up - Two Thirds by Kent Allen
