Brindleyplace Hanami Photography Competition
Brindleyplace has launched a special photography competition that celebrates the traditional Japanese festival of Hanami, as well as discovering blossoming artistic talent in Birmingham.
An annual event, Hanami is the Japanese tradition of ‘enjoying the transient beauty of flowers’ and is celebrated to coincide with the flowering of cherry blossom across the country.
Organised in partnership with Ikon and Café Opus at Ikon, the Hanami Photography Competition is targeted at amateur photographers with a passion for photography in Birmingham and will be officially launched when the first cherry blossom flowers on the trees in Oozells Square in Brindleyplace.
Participants in the competition will be asked to submit one photograph that they feel captures the beauty of the cherry blossom in Brindleyplace, helping to bring Hanami to Birmingham.
The winning photograph will be chosen by a team of judges including Stuart Tulloch, Ikon Curator, Amy Secretan, Manager at Café Opus at Ikon, Dan Morrissey, Presenter at Free Radio and Pete James, Curator of Photography Collections at Library of Birmingham. The winner will have their photo displayed in Café Opus at Ikon following the competition, as well as winning a meal for two at the popular café.
From when the competition is launched – the blossom typically blooms at the end of March –participants will have until the 13 April to submit their entry, with the judging taking place that same week.
