Tenebrae Shadows Photo Competition

Posted on 8th July 2014

Did you know that the word ‘tenebrae’ comes from the Latin meaning ‘shadows’? To celebrate the sunny summer weather, perfect for shadow-casting, Tenebrae are running an online competition to find the most creative shadow themed photograph! Whether it’s a snapped silhouette or a posed projection, you can be as obscure as you like (no prizes for spotting what we did there!). The top 5 photos sent to us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram will win some great prizes:

  • 1st Prize: 2 tickets for our What Sweeter Music concert on 18th December.
  • 2nd Prize: A chance to meet and greet the choir while attending one of our rehearsals.
  • Runners up x 3: A signed and dedicated CD.

There are just two simple steps to enter!

  1. Create or take a photo of a shadow, and remember to be inventive!
  2. Upload it to Tenebrae’s Facebook Page/Tweet us/Instagram using the hashtag #tenebraeshadows

You can even visit our Pinterest ‘Shadows’ board for inspiration.

Entries will be judged by Artistic Director Nigel Short after the competition’s closing date: Midnight (BST) on Friday 25th July 2014.

Please note that by entering, you are agreeing to the competition Terms and Conditions.

Good look and get snapping!
