Your photography is good, but is it award-winning? Your friends like it, your customers and clients keep coming back, but wouldn’t it be nice to get some recognition among your peers? If you think you’ve got what it takes, put your skills to the test with our Photographic Reflections Competition. Win, and you could find yourself enjoying professional coaching at the London School of Photography and a £500 Amazon.co.uk Gift Certificate to spend on more photography kit.
We’re asking photographers across the UK to produce a photograph around the theme ‘reflections’— this can be absolutely anything, the interpretation is up to you! If you’re in it to win it, just follow these three easy steps and put your photography skills to the test:
1. Capture a shot
The theme is ‘reflections’, anything from literal to metaphorical, it’s all up to your artistic interpretation. You can use whatever inspires you; it’s all about personal, creative responses.
2. Upload it to our Facebook page
Once you’ve taken your shot, just upload it to our Facebook page and start sharing with friends, family, colleagues and anyone you think will dig your work.
3. Get votes!
You’ll need to share your photograph as much as possible to get those votes rolling in.
The ten photographs with the most ‘likes’ will go through to our distinguished judging panel, who will pick a winner.
