Honiton’s Thelma Hulbert Gallery has launched a fun photo competition to celebrate its new and recently installed signs.

The eye-catching signage includes a large sign at the gallery entrance and in Dowell Street, together with signs directing visitors from the Lace Walk car park.

THG’s Fiona Page-Turner said: “To celebrate the signs, THG has announced a competition where visitors are encouraged to take a ‘selfie’ photo in the frame and either tweet or post their photos to Instagram with the hashtag #THGselfie.

“The winner will receive a beautiful mounted artwork.”

Entrants must follow @ThelmaHulbertGallery so they can be advised if they have won. The final deadline for posting a selfie is Saturday, August 29.

Angela Blackwell, THG’s curator, added: “Our visitors have often found it hard to find the gallery.

“We have listened to this feedback and we are thrilled that we can finally make the gallery more visible.

“It was particularly important to have the signs up in time for the tourist season to encourage new visitors to our exhibitions and workshops over the summer.”

THG is currently exhibiting all entries for this year’s Evolver Prize 2015, which was won by East Devon’s Moose Allain.

Admission to the exhibit is free but donations are welcomed.

All donations help to support the THG learning and exhibition programme.
