SOL Barbados & British High Commission boost “Arts in Motion” Photography competitions: $30K at stake

SOL Caribbean and Photo Finish are proud sponsors of the Summer Arts Festival‘s latest initiative… Prize monies totalling more than $30,000 and the competitions will run through the Crop Over season to allow further entries inspired by events in Barbados, thanks to both SOL and the British High Commission.

Ronnie Carrington, doyen of Barbados’ photographic community, launched the Arts in Motion photography competitions at a ceremony at the British High Commission on Friday.

He commented that it was the goal of Arts in Motion “to bridge the gap between the world of the arts and the world of business, and to assist people in making a profit from their photographic passion.”

Picture Barbados and Caribbean Mirror were the two competitions launched, one to celebrate what is truly Bajan and the other to encourage photographers all around the Eastern Caribbean and further afield to use their cameras to tell stories. The competitions are another aspect of the Summer Arts Festival, held recently at the Hastings Rocks, Christ Church.
