3 categories, 50p per photo:

‘On my travels‘ – anything from a walk on Dartmoor to a solo trek to the North Pole, so anything from a sunset to a close up of a Polar Bear…

‘In the garden‘ – anything from a close up of a flower to a National Trust flower bed to an old watering can and a garden shed, not to mention various wildlife, etc.

‘Buildings and architecture‘ – a tumble down ruin to a medieval castle to a modern architectural masterpiece – or a perhaps just a 2-up, 2-down, an old air raid shelter covered in weeds, or a des res in Surbiton.

OPEN – “Peoples’ Choice Vote”

Voting by the public on any photo entered in to any of the above categories, for 1st and 2nd prize overall. Voting to close and votes counted at 3:45pm on the day.

Creativity, humour  and imagination is encouraged! And the Peoples’ Choice Vote ensures that everyone has a chance of the overall prize – a fancy rosette, bragging rights and kudos!

Maximum entry size is 4 submissions per person, per category (i.e., 12 in total), with a maximum print size of 9″x6“, B&W or colour. This year there is a small fee of 50p per photo entered, with a discount fee of £5 for a maximum entry of 12 photos. All entries must be labelled on the back, with name of entrant, contact phone number, category entered, and if desired details of any title or caption, and technical information about the image. All entries may be collected from the church after 4:30pm on the day; uncollected entries will be left in the church for later retrieval by the entrant. Any questions, please contact Mike Rego on 01647 441096.

All entries, together with the entry fee of 50p per photo entered, must be received by midnight Thursday 18th July, to:NB Fair 2018 Photographic Competition

The idea is that the three categories are easy enough for all abilities to enter, although ‘buildings and architecture’ is to challenge the more serious amateurs as well, and as before, everyone viewing the entries gets their chance to vote for their two favourites from out of all the entries in the ‘peoples’ choice vote’, which always produces an ‘interesting’ result…  will it be soft fluffy kittens in old boots, or a dramatic masterpiece in the style of Cartier-Bresson, Helmut Newton, James Ravilious, etc? You vote, you decide…

Prints are limited to a maximum size of 9″ x 6″, to keep costs down, to ensure that the person with the best/most expensive home printer does not have an unfair advantage, and most importantly, to allow mobile phone images to compete with the best that Nikon, Leica, Hasselblad can offer..
