Famous Beyond Words Photo Contest
Famous Beyond Words Photo Contest – For four centuries Shakespeare’s work has fascinated people of all ages and backgrounds. Our new introductory exhibition at Shakespeare’s Birthplace opens in March 2014 and will explore the extraordinary story of William Shakespeare, the boy from Stratford-upon-Avon who became a household name all over the world.
As part of this exciting new exhibition we aim to showcase the lasting influence of Stratford-upon-Avon’s most famous son. We’re asking for contributions of photographs from across the globe to enable us to collate a record of Shakespeare’s continuing influence on the world around us.
Images submitted to this project should aim to highlight the influence of Shakespeare on our towns, cities and everyday lives. As an example, photographs might depict a Shakespearian street sign, a public piece of art or any landmark influenced by or named after Shakespeare or his works.
Aside from their relevance to Shakespeare, images will be judged on originality, composition, overall impact and artistic merit. The judging panel will comprise of Shakespeare Birthplace Trust staff members.
