EALING U3A PHOTOGRAPHIC COMPETITION

Here are the final details of the 2020 Photographic Competition - the closing date for entries will be Wednesday 30th September, and the results and prize-giving will be on Thursday 15th October. We will not be able to have the presentation of the results at Ealing Green Church this year, and it will be done via a Zoom video session - further details on this will follow nearer the time.

The categories for this year's competition are Leaves, Hands, Views from my Window, Still Life and, once again, My Favourite Photo.
For the first 4 categories, photos must have been taken since October 2019.
Entries for 'My Favourite Photo' can have been taken at any time, and this category is restricted to those who've never previously won an Ealing U3A photographic prize.

For this year, we will accept entries sent as email attachments and we anticipate that most entrants will use this method. However, for those unable to send their entries this way, you will also be able to send your pictures by post. To send an entry for the competition:

  • You must complete the PHOTO COMPETITION entry form (click to download) with details of your competition entry/ies.
  • For EMAIL entries - send an email to U3ANewsEaling@gmail.com with the Subject line 'PHOTO COMPETITION' attaching the Photographs you are submitting. You also need to either attach your completed Entry form to this email or include all the details (highlighted on the Entry form in Yellow) in the body of your email message.
  • For POSTAL entries - print out the completed Entry form and send this along with the Photographs you are submitting to Ealing U3A Photo Competition, 65 Princes Gardens, Acton, W3 0LR. Please note the maximum size of photographs which can be submitted by post is A5 (145mm x 220mm or 5.75in x 8.25in)

Prizes: 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be awarded for each category. If the judge feels that any photos are of special merit, then a "Commended" prize may be awarded for any category. The prizes are M&S Vouchers and will be as follows:
1st prize £20
2nd prize £15
3rd prize £10
Commended £5

[NB. The originally listed categories of 'Sports' and 'Trains/Boats/Planes' will be held over for the 2021 competition, and we will allow pictures taken in 2020 to be included for these categories]
