‘Digital Art’ & ‘Manx Scenes’
Mar 17 @ 7:45 pm – 10:00 pm

A sociable evening with a twin purpose :

The ‘Digital Art‘ competition is a chance to showcase your ‘arty’ or quirky ideas and creativity with processing and effects, followed by explanations and demonstrations of how some of the images were created (this is entirely voluntary but always appreciated).  You may enter up to five images.

Then we will view everyone’s latest digital images from around the island for the annual calendar project.  Remember we need ‘Manx Scenes‘ of all seasons and from all locations, not just the south of the island!

Images should be emailed to the usual address no later than Saturday evening, 13th March.  Please send Digital Art entries and calendar images on separate emails to avoid confusion and title your emails accordingly (‘Digital Art’ or ‘Manx Scenes’).
