They want to champion the roles that these venue play in bringing all our communities together. The Judges will be looking for photos that encapsulate that sense of village community and not just a pretty village image. So please get those camera out and start snapping the perfect picture for your community.”
Fancy a challenge? The British Journal of Photography has announced their Portrait of Britain Competition. Closing date is 1st May 2018.
Winners will have their work exhibited on JCDecaux screens nationwide, on bus stops, high streets and in train stations, as part of the biggest exhibition of contemporary portraiture ever held.
Your photograph will be seen by millions of people as they embark on their everyday journeys, brightening up their commutes and embedding your work in their consciousness. This career-changing exposure is unique to the scale of Portrait of Britain, which reaches across the length and breadth of the UK.
In the lead-up to the exciting summer OuseFest celebrations (18 – 31 July), the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership are running the 2016 Snap the Ouse Photography Competition. The competition is open to any photographs that define the character and feel of the Ouse Washes and surrounding areas, and that depict what makes our area great. Whether your photographs show landscapes, wildlife, people, buildings or water, you are encouraged to enter.
There will be three winners, one from each entrance category (age 12 or under; 13 – 18; 19 or over), who will each receive a fantastic basket of prizes worth £50. To participate, please send your photographs taken in the Ouse Washes or surrounding area to Sara Marshall by Sunday 29 May 2016.
Graham Mumby has pointed out this photography competition, in case anyone in the club is interested. There is no obvious closing date on the site, but it does say the winner will be announced at the end of July.
