The European Championship will be held in Great Britain for the first time in Nottingham, May 2016. Archery GB and its partners will deliver a world class event which will showcase elite European archers to a global audience.

Archery GB, in partnership with UK Sport, Nottingham City Council and the University of Nottingham, has been successful in its bid to host the 2016 World Archery Europe Outdoor Target Championship.

In association with Inside Out Time Lapse Productions this film was produced to show the illustration of the archery target wall; the finished size will be 21m long by 4m high. Two cameras were clicking away every 15 seconds whilst the illustrator recorded the screen as he painted. 40 Hours of film was captured and Inside Out produced the final production and did a great job.
