It doesn’t matter what you take! Portraits, landscapes, natural history, architectural, surreal, black & white, colour. It’s what you love taking photographs of that counts. If you love it, we’ll love it, so get out and get shooting.

It doesn’t matter what you take it with! Whether you use the latest Canon technology, a mobile phone or a pinhole camera, it’s all the same to us. If you love it, we’ll love it. More than anything, we are looking for photographic flair and creativity.

Your entries must have been taken between January 1 and August 31 this year. We want you to go out and take fresh photographs with this competition in mind.

This year’s competition will be judged by Martin Fry FRPS APAGB EFIAP AV-AFIAP BPE3.
