Village Photo Competition

Happy Easter everyone!

As promised (admittedly a few months ago), is running a photographic competition. The intention is that the winning 12 photographs will form a 2023 calendar to go on sale in the run up to Christmas, although this will depend on some sponsors coming forward to help cover printing costs (details of sponsorship packages will be released in the next few weeks),

As well as seeing your photographs in print (hopefully!), there will be two additional prizes of gift cards to the value of £25. One for the best photograph by a person aged UNDER 16 years of age (on 1st Oct 2022) and for the best photograph by a person aged 16 or older. Plus, I am hoping sponsors might also offer some prizes (watch this space).

The rules (we have to have some), are below. Apart from that - good luck and tell all your friends to get snapping!
