Luminate Photography Challenge

The Luminate Challenge is a chance for you to create something new this summer, enjoy yourself and share it with others around the country.

The challenge invites you to create a photographic portrait of someone from a different generation, and tell us what inspired you to photograph them.

As part of Luminate 2015 a range of portraits will be chosen and exhibited online, and as part of a pop-up photography exhibition touring to various community venues including halls, libraries, care homes and sports centres across Scotland in the month of October.

To guide and inspire you, we have commissioned portraits from photographic artist Robin Gillanders, who has also shared some thoughts and tips on things you might like to think about when you’re setting up and taking your portraits.

A selection of Robin’s images will also be included in the touring pop –up exhibition.

The deadline for entries is midnight on Monday 7 September 2015, and full details of how to enter – along with Robin Gillanders’ images and advice – can be found on the Luminate website: here

Anyone interested in entering the challenge can contact Luminate by email or by phone 0131 668 8066.

Luminate, Scotland’s creative ageing festival, celebrates our creative lives as we age and takes place from 1 to 31 October each year.

Launched in 2012, Luminate is supported by Creative Scotland, the Baring Foundation and Age Scotland.
