You can take a photograph (any size), or draw, paint, make a collage or make a needlework image of the Volcano Batch on an A4 sheet of paper or fabric; any colour paper, card or fabric is fine as long as it is A4 in size.
Photographs can be emailed in large format to: Miranda Litchfield Museum Development Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org or handed in or posted to the museum at the address below.
Artwork can either be handed in at the museum’s front desk in person, or posted to: Miranda Litchfield, Radstock Museum, Waterloo Road, Radstock. BA3 3EP.
Closing date for entries: 31st May 2017. Maximum 2 entries per person: giving you the opportunity to enter both a photograph and an artwork if you choose.
Please include your Full Name, your Town or Village (there are no restrictions on who can apply) and your Age if under 16. These details will be clearly printed on the winning postcards along with your image. Radstock Museum retains the right to print your images so please make sure you are aware of this before submitting your entries.
Artworks can be collected from the Museum at the end of the exhibition later in the summer (dates to be confirmed: look at the Museum website nearer the time for details). Regrettably, due to the potential volume of entrants, we will be unable to post artworks back to their rightful owners.
Ideas for photos and artwork:
• How far away can you see the batch from different vantage points in the area?
• Time of day – how does the light change its appearance? Maybe a sunset? A sunrise?
• Nature – can you capture any wildlife in your photograph or artwork?
• Interesting angles and perspectives-How large can you make it look?
• Weather – how do clouds change the appearance of the “volcano”? Can you capture a nice image in the rain? Or only on a beautiful spring day?
• Colour, can you bring in some dramatic colour into your photograph or artwork?
