Digital Art Competition to

Celebrate Cinderford's Digital Future

To celebrate a faster Cinderford, internet service provider Full Fibre Ltd has teamed up with Artspace Cinderford to run a stimulating online art competition.

 

Open to all ages, the exciting new initiative is inviting the local community to submit images on the theme of ‘Connections.’

With Cinderford on the cusp of benefiting from a brand-new gigabit-capable broadband network, the local Arts charity, and the lightning-fast broadband provider are looking for artwork created using any media that illustrates the importance of connection. The image(s) that best captures the magic of connection will win an iPad or a one-year subscription to Adobe CC.

The new ultra-fast network builds on from a contract awarded to FullFibre Ltd through Fastershire’s Community Grant Scheme to provide faster broadband to 90 Cinderford premises hampered by painfully slow internet connections.

Rob Toomer – Youth Arts Manager at Artspace said,

 “When the pandemic forced us to move our entire programme of courses and workshops online, good broadband became essential. It made it possible for our learners to participate in courses and remain connected with their community. Because we have learned to make the most of faster broadband, we can now develop new exciting digital initiatives, and provide even more opportunities for our local community to benefit from.”

 Matt Smith, Head of Public Procurement and Engagement, from FullFibre Ltd added,

 “Artspace is a much-loved organisation embedded within the community in Cinderford.  We hope this special partnership will raise awareness of Cinderford becoming one of the fastest connected places to live in the UK by focusing on the importance of connecting with each other. With entries from people of all ages and abilities, we look forward to sharing an online exhibition that will have something for everyone.”

The top 100 entries will be selected for a digital 4k exhibition, and the winner will be selected from a shortlist by the local community.

Visit http://artspacecinderford.org/connections-competition/ to submit your Connections art and find out more about Artspace as well as all the courses and opportunities currently available. The competition closes at the end of July.

*Conditions

This information does not constitute an offer by Full Fibre Limited (“Full Fibre”) which is available to you to accept (or transfer or sell). Instead, Full Fibre is putting in place a network which would enable those ISPs which sign up to using that network to offer their own customers prices in the ranges illustrated. These prices (which would include free standard installation and VAT) are indicative only and whether they will be available to you depends on the following factors:-

  • Has your ISP signed up to using Full Fibre’s network?
  • Is your ISP offering these prices? Which prices are offered to end-users ultimately depend on the ISP concerned and Full Fibre does not control this decision or impose prices.
  • Has the Full Fibre network gone live in your area?
  • Are there any technical or other issues affecting your access to the Full Fibre network?
  • Would you be a new fibre connection with the ISP? The indicative prices are not aimed at an ISP’s existing customers.
