A winning combination of food and photography will be a feature at the fringe this year.
Take a Cake! Junior Food Photography competition for Cowbridge Food and Drink Festival Fringe.
Bring your children along to Bijou, Cowbridge on Saturday 5th of October 2-5pm for a master class in cupcake decorating, followed by tuition in photography. Melanie Constantinou of Baked by Mel will help the children create a nature themed cupcake design and Natasha Jenkins of Photography Jnr will then teach them how to compose and photograph their favourite creation. Children will then get to eat their yummy cakes afterwards.
Best photo taken by each child will be reproduced onto A3 foamex boards and judged by a celebrity panel the following week. Judges will be looking out for yumminess factor, composition, cupcake design, and styling.
All photographs will be exhibited in the Waitrose Cafe and in Cowbridge Library in the run up to the food festival. The exhibition will then be moved to the marquee at the food fringe during festival weekend where postcards of all the images will be on sale.
The photography competion is open to 4 -12 year olds and will be judged in two age groups 4-8 and 9-12 years. Places are limited to 12. Cost is £20 with all materials and photography equipment provided and foamex board with final image returned after food festival.
