Berwick St James Photographic Competition


We have decided to hold a Seasonal Photographic Competition, to be run four times a year (obviously) for Berwick and associated residents.  The first 3-month period (Spring) starts now until the end of May, summer is the start of June to end of August and so forth.   The subject of the photograph can be of anything (village or country scenes, people, animals, etc), and can be taken with any camera (including phone cameras), so they don’t have to be technically perfect, but they must capture the essence of the season.  The photos themselves must be taken within the allocated period and be within the parish boundary (or thereabouts).  Individuals should contribute no more than three photos per season, all given a title and emailed to me (in full resolution).


All submitted photos will be put on the website for everyone to see, and Barbara Last as judge will select the one she considers the best that captures the essence of the season.  The winner will be announced at the end of the first week of the following season.  No prizes, just lots of kudos!
