2014 Photographic Competition

Following the success of our Photographic Competitions in 2008, 2010 and 2012, we have decided to hold a further competition during 2014.  Again, this is for photographs taken in Northwich Woodlands and entries are invited from photographers of all ages and abilities.

You can find the rules by clicking Photographic Competition Rules 2014 . Copies can also be obtained from the Rangers’ Cabin at Marbury. The closing date for entries is 31st December 2014.

Suggestions from the judges:

1. A title is almost essential, particularly in the new category ‘Work, Rest and Play’. It gives some indication of the photographer’s intention.
2. The final print should be borderless, or has a regular border. This leads to a better presentation.
3. The quality of the paper affects the presentation of the photos.
4. Do not worry about submitting a photo because of the type of camera. Some of the best entries have been taken with basic equipment.
5. Composition and capturing the essence of the category entered are the keys to success.

Get your camera out and get snapping. We look forward to your participation.
