ideas on future photography competitions
« on: March 19, 2014 »

To encourage more entries I will be choosing the monthly theme ahead of schedule to give people a bit more time to seek out that elusive winning shot, so post any themes you would like to see, or indeed any ideas for improving the competition. Just because its been used before doesn't mean I won't use it again.

Here's a list of previous theme, I will be publishing a winners gallery in due course.

'Deceptive Scale' or something to that effect? Where we don't know if we are looking at something tiny or huge. Or something that is actually tiny appears huge, or vice versa.

Good ideas there folks, keep them coming. While i'd like to stick to fairly generic titles as this tend to encourage more entries, with enough notice people should certainley be able to come up with something a bit more technical, and I personally prefer the technical ones   :)

I've been toying with the potential for a day/afternoon/night out once a month to take photos for the photo comp. We could get together and go somewhere relevant to the topic and take pics / eat sausages / shoot the breeze / generally enjoy the outdoors.

I like this idea, and maybe have a sub-photo comp going for each event, in fact we could do a wee photo comp for each of our bigger overnight meets.

Advance notice:
