Announcing a photography competition
Palace Arts would like to see your contemporary social documentary photographs of Teesside.
We hope you will feel inspired by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr to capture, with warmth and humour, black and white images which celebrate the everyday lives of the people of our region. (Competition judges will be looking for photographs showing people, rather than the local landscape or the built environment.)
