Photo 2021

Photo competition 2021 announcement for newsletter and website

Seldom can so many of us have yearned so much and for so long for the arrival of spring but soon now it really will be "just around the corner" so at the first signs of its arrival get out there with your camera and take some inspirational shots to enter into our first photograph competition of this year, subject (yes, you've guessed it) - Spring!

That's it, simply…….Spring! - Anything that shouts spring to us. Light fluffy clouds and blue skies, nature of course, spring cleaning (does anyone do that anymore). Simply your interpretation of the word spring and what it means to you this year especially.

You don't need to be a photo enthusiast with an expensive camera. Use your DSLR by all means but photos taken using phones or compact cameras will be fine - We're more interested in what's in front of the camera.

Our first photo competition was a great success with over 120 entries in total and I'm sure that we'll exceed that but, this time we are asking for something different. We are asking you to get out there and take pictures especially for this competition. So, no searching through your old pics please - brand new ones only. All entries will appear on our website.

Please take note of the following entry requirements.

• As before, up to six entries per person, either as electronic images or prints.
• Please give each picture a unique, descriptive name consisting of no more than 6 words that you would like to appear against it on our website, either as its file name in the case of an electronic image or on the back of a print.
• Optionally, you may give us an additional, extended description for each picture.
• Include your full name.
• Please send electronic entries attached to an email to our Membership Secretary Graham Isley via graham.isley.u3a@gmx.com
• If you have prints then please contact Membership Secretary Graham Isley via email or via the link on the Committee tab of our website and we'll send you an address to post your prints to.
• The closing date for receipt of entries will be Friday, 30th April 2021 on the stroke of midnight.
