Pix from the Stix Annual Photo Competition 2020 - this year will be an online competition!

As the Gallery itself is temporarily closed and there are tight restrictions on people’s movements and limits on gatherings, PIX FROM THE STIX 2020 will be an online exhibition.

Pix from the Stix Annual Photo Competition has been included in the Gloucester Gallery calendar of exhibitions since 2001 so this year, in response to the bizarre circumstances we all find ourselves in, we want you to email us your entry photos for display on our Pix from the Stix facebook page and here on our website.

We would also like to turn things around a little and offer support to our sponsors in return for the support they have given PIX in years past and hopefully in years to come.

Pix from the Stix has been proudly supported over the years by local sponsors. 2019’s Major Prize was from Hello World Travel Gloucester and R&R Property.

All other prizes and support for the event was provided by Gloucester Advocate, The Roundabout Inn, Barrington Hideaway, KE & LA Forbes, Gloucester Medico, Avon Valley Inn, Faulls Ridge Wines, Gloucester Tyre & Battery, Webbs Real Estate and Jacobs Building.

As the Gallery itself is temporarily closed and there are tight restrictions on people’s movements and limits on gatherings, PIX FROM THE STIX 2020 will be an online exhibition.

We won’t be asking them to dig in their pockets but we will still be giving them a plug!

GACCI invites all interested photographers, of any standing, be they amateur, professional or novice to get snapping.

Each senior category awards 1st Prize $100, 2nd Prize $50; Junior category gives 1st Prize $75, 2nd Prize $50 and a $25 Encouragement Award.

A Major Prize of $500 is awarded to the overall winner.

The 1st Prize in The Lie Of The Land category also receives a $50 Publishing Award from the Gloucester Advocate and it will grace the cover of Gloucester Phonebook in 2021.

Lastly, a People’s Choice Prize can be awarded at the conclusion of the online exhibition. For this we will accept email votes and the winner will receive kudos in lieu of cash.
