The Face-off

Do you ever get the feeling that you’re being watched? Are there any objects with faces in your home that you are particularly proud of? Scary, beautiful, intriguing, striking, ugly; whatever they are, we want to see them! Face-off the rest of the competition and give your object a spectacular face lift high on RAMM’s walls as part of Bedwyr Williams’ foyer of faces.

All you need to do is send us your best image of a human (or human-like) face featured on an object in your own home. The judge will need to view it in its full glory, so make sure the photograph is of good quality and taken head on, looking straight ahead. The photograph cannot be of a real human’s face and must be something easily transportable to RAMM.

Renowned artist Bedwyr Williams will personally select the winning face to display amongst his artwork. RAMM will then take a professional photograph of the winning object and add it to Williams’ foyer of faces. An invitation to the exclusive launch of the new artwork will be given to the winner and a guest where they will get to meet Bedwyr Williams in person. A digital copy of the photograph will also be theirs to keep and enjoy. To enter, simply take your photograph and upload it via the submission form at the bottom of this page.

Can you face up to the challenge?
