Our latest Seasons of Ealing photo competition for spring opens on 1 April. Show off something great in our borough and your picture could be printed in Around Ealing magazine and shown off on Ealing News Extra website.
Following on from the great images we received for our autumn and winter competitions, the idea is for you to enter your favourite snaps of anything of a springtime flavour. It could be a landscape, a skyline, wildlife, your family playing; whatever takes your eye and lifts your spirits. The key is that it has to have been taken in the borough – and, must have been taken by you.
Hopefully, the changeable weather will not prevent you from taking some superb snaps like the one above of Fielding Walk (copyright of Kate Jennings), but we are sure that nature and flowers will not provide your only source of inspiration.
HOW DO I ENTER?
If you fancy getting involved, the spring Seasons of Ealing competition will open on Sunday, 1 April 2018. It will close on Friday, 4 May 2018 at 11.59pm. You should email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org by this closing deadline for your entry/entries to be included.
For your photo to be considered, you must:
- Put Seasons of Ealing in the subject line of the email
- Include your name, postal address and phone number
- Include a brief description of what the photo is of, when you took it and where you took it
- State that the photo was taken by you, and that you also have permission of any people whose faces appear in the photo to enter the photo into the Seasons of Ealing competition
- Make sure the image is of a high enough resolution to be reproduced online and in print (i.e. poor quality images will not be considered).
WHAT HAPPENS THEN?
After the deadline for entries, a panel will judge the entries and select a shortlist. These shortlisted photos will be showcased here, on a gallery at EalingNewsExtra.co.uk – and then everyone can get involved because the winner will be selected via a public poll we will run at Facebook.com/EalingLondon
After the poll has closed, the winning photo will be announced.
Other things to know
By entering the competition you are agreeing for your photo to be reproduced in Around Ealing magazine, EalingNewsExtra.co.uk website, and the council’s social media channels at any time. No remuneration will be possible but you will be named as the photographer if it is used.
We will not, unfortunately, be able to reply to everyone who has entered the competition.
