After the success of our first Seasons of Ealing photo competition, themed around autumn, we are about to run a second. This time, of course, it will be all about winter.
By showing off something great in our borough you could see your picture shortlisted and published on Ealing News Extra. The winner will, again, then be selected by the public in a vote on the EalingLondon Facebook page. The winner will, like last time, be published somewhere in Around Ealing magazine.
Entries to the winter Seasons of Ealing photo competition can be sent in from next Friday (1 December 2017) until Tuesday, 2 January 2018.
The idea is for you to enter your favourite snaps of anything of a wintry flavour – whatever takes your eye and lifts your spirits. The key is that it has to have been taken in the borough during winter months and must have been taken by you.
Take a look at the gallery of entries shortlisted in our autumn competition for some inspiration. Or you might like to pick up some ideas by taking a look at what is taking place locally in the build-up to Christmas in our recent round-up. It could be anything – ducks on an icy lake, a family scene at a Christmas fair, an unusual wintry landscape, someone walking in a frosty street in the early morning light…the possibilities are as wide as your imagination.
How do I enter?
Email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing deadline for entries, which is 11.59pm on Tuesday, 2 January 2018.
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 on our website 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 featured in an edition of Around Ealing magazine.
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.
If any image is found 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.
