With the success of the Tour de Yorkshire and the imminent arrival of the UCI World Road Cycling Championships this September, the world’s gaze is firmly focussed on God’s own county – Yorkshire. To celebrate the county’s landscapes and famous cycling obsession, we are inviting contributors to a brand new photographic exhibition to be held in Ripon Cathedral, On yer bike, Yorkshire.
The exhibition is being curated by Ripon Together with the aim of showcasing different views of our area and/or the county’s obsession with cycling. The exhibition will kick off the Get Ripon Cycling initiative, challenging the people of our great city to cycle to the moon (and hopefully back!).
The cost to exhibit is free. You can also submit an image to be displayed digitally if you do not wish to print your work.
- Each contributor can submit three images to the panel for approval with a brief description of where the image was taken. Please use the contact form below. Images can be submitted one at a time.
- Images need to be provided mounted or framed
- Minimum size of contribution is 12×8″ and maximum size is roughly 24×16″ (or thereabouts)
- If you wish to display a print digitally, please select the option on the form. We have use of a 50″ screen with a rolling display in the cathedral
How we decide on images to be displayed:
- We only have limited exhibition space.
- A panel will decide which images to be hung will be drawn from Ripon Together – headed by the Very Reverend John Dobson DL.
- Preference will be given to any images connected to cycling (anywhere) and to images of places or activities within cycling distance of Ripon.
- All submitted images will be displayed on a rolling display on a 50″ screen
- The exhibition runs from the 28th June to 19th July.
- Submission deadline: 12th June
- Contributors will be informed if their images have been accepted into the exhibition by 14th June
- Prints need to be delivered to the cathedral on 26th/27th June
- Exhibitors are welcome to sell prints through the Cathedral Gift Shop at 20% commission
- The submission form asks for a description of your image – this will be used to create the image’s caption when exhibited.
