Original post 5 July: Creative visual arts amateurs are invited by Santiago del Teide Ayuntamiento to take part in the 32nd edition of the photography and painting competition Rincones de Santiago (Corners of Santiago). The deadline for entries is 2pm on Thursday 26 July, three weeks today, and the competition is open to anyone over 18, of any nationality, whether resident here or elsewhere.
Organizers say that the theme, Rincones de Santiago, should be understood as images representative of the municipality, whether picturesque landscape, typical corners, or ethnographical scenes. Works must be original and unedited, and not submitted for competition previously. Works will be evaluated by a panel of judges drawn from the field of pictorial and photographic art, and the president of the judging panel will be the councillor for Cultura. The judges’ decision will be announced on 29 July at 6pm in the XXXVII Feria de Artesanía in calle Méndez Núnez in Tamaimo, where the works will be displayed throughout that day.
Cash prizes will be awarded for the first three placed paintings (€600, €300 and €150 respectively) and photos (€300, €200, and €150 respectively) and criteria for production and submissions of paintings and photos are detailed on the council’s Facebook page HERE.
