Likeness - A portrait photography competition for amateurs


Competition entries accepted until midnight June 28th | Exhibition to follow

10-5pm FREE

Due to public demand, Volcano’s new photo competition: Likeness is being extended to include a category for people OVER 25 and based in the Swansea Bay City Region area. You don’t have to think you are a ‘proper photographer’. This competition is open to everyone who likes to take photographs, including on mobile devices. Those which are long-listed will become part of an exhibition at Volcano in the High Street Swansea so, again, this is a great opportunity as we have a very large gallery!

As a result of this extension, the competition will now close for entry on 28 June 2021 and an exhibition at Volcano will follow shortly afterward. The competition is open solely for portraits of other people. 

We’d like the photographs to reflect time and thought taken to work with the subject of your portrait – whether this is a single conversation or days of negotiation! This means more than a quick gaining of permission and so rules out quick snapshots and candid, street captures. 

There will be 3 prizes totalling £100 for those photos judged to be best portraits in each category (over and under 25 years old).

Entrants can submit up to three photos in total.
