With poetry debuting at the forthcoming Islands Games in Guernsey between 8-14 July, the cultural fringe is now set to grow even larger with a competition for digital artists.

Photographers, filmmakers, animators, and digital artists from the islands competing in the Games are invited to submit work to the Islands Digital Arts Open.

The digital competition is asking for work on the theme of “islands” that explores the significance of their home island, be it a dramatic viewpoint, iconic landmark, building, or interpretation of a historic moment.

A piece of artwork will be selected and showcased in the Islands Digital Arts Open exhibition in the George Crossan Gallery, St Peter’s Port. The selected works will also be shown on the big screens at the sporting venues on Guernsey.

It is planned that the various Island Games cultural projects will establish a collaborative insight into the islands, develop cultural diplomacy and create a cultural legacy of island-based creative communities.

Submission details can be obtained from the Guernsey Arts website. The closing date is Sunday, April 30.
