Capture a slice of winter and send it in

Winter 2018 Seasons of Ealing is here. Entries began to be accepted on Saturday (1 December) for our sixth successive seasonal photo competition.

The winner will again be selected by the public and published in Around Ealing magazine and on this website.

As you would expect, the idea is for you to send in your favourite snaps of anything of a wintry flavour. The key is that it has to be taken within the borough – and by you; ideally during the entry window of the competition, but certainly within the last year. We look forward to seeing your excellent pictures, but please make sure you check the rules set out below, first.

The picture we used above of a robin in a wintry garden was taken by Ian Strachan last year. It was one of nine shortlisted entries in our 2017 winter competition that the public voted for to choose the victor.

You can view all five previous Seasons of Ealing shortlists on our gallery page.

Photos must be received by the closing deadline for entries, which is 11.59pm on Wednesday, 2 January 2019. After that point, a panel will judge the entries and select a shortlist. These shortlisted photos will be showcased on a gallery on this website – and then everyone can get involved because the winner will be selected via a public poll we will run at – after which the winner will be announced.

You are allowed to enter more than one photograph if you would like to. You need to email your photo(s) to by the closing deadline for your entry/entries to be considered.

For your photo to be considered you must also follow this process:

  1. Put Seasons of Ealing in the subject line of the email
  2. Include your name, postal address and phone number
  3. Include a brief description of what the photo is of, when you took it and where you took it
  4. 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
  5. 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).
Other things to know

By entering the competition you are consenting for your photo to be reproduced at any time by Ealing Council in its print and digital publications and channels (including, but not restricted to, Around Ealing magazine, website, and the council’s social media). No remuneration will be possible but you will be named as the photographer if it is used on this website or in Around Ealing.

We will not, unfortunately, be able to reply to everyone who has entered the competition.

If any image is deemed not to have been taken in the borough, or to have broken any of the other conditions outlined above, the photo will be disqualified from the competition.
