Photo Competition

Once again Sale Photographic Society are organising a photographic competition and exhibition.

This year’s subject is “It’s Holiday Time” Entrance to the competition is free.

As part of its celebrations for Festival Week, Sale Festival 2017 is running a Photographic Competition for keen Amateur Photographers on the theme of

“It’s Holiday Time !”

With a theme like this, the opportunities are vast, and we would love you to enter the competition.

All of us take breaks and holidays throughout the year, some of us going abroad, some of us staying in this country, and some of us just simply staying at home and relaxing !   And of course holidays go on throughout the year, not just in the summer.  Many of us take City Breaks at all times of the year, or head for the hills or to coast in all seasons, with  Christmas being a special holiday in the bleakest month of the year, when many people go skiing or chasing the sun in the Canaries !

So whether its lazing on a beach in the Bahamas, skiing in Switzerland, walking in the Lake District or any other holiday activity  that you care to think of that depicts the theme in the way you want to interpret it,  we would love to see your pictures.    The options for holiday photographs are truly vast !

Holiday Time is when people do what they have dreamed of doing all year, so if you’ve got some shots, let’s see them !

Amateur Photographers who would like to enter the competition should submit up to 4 prints to Sale Waterside Arts Centre to arrive no later than Tuesday 30th May 2017.

The top 20 winning prints, together with a selection of the runners up will take pride of place in an Exhibition to be mounted at Sale Waterside for the 4 weeks after the competition judging.  So you can judge your own efforts against the other entrants

The winner of the Senior Competition will receive a fabulous prize of £100, which will be presented to them during Festival Week, with runners up prizes of £50 for 2nd place and £25 for 3rd place.

There is also a Junior Section for Photographers up to 16, with the winner receiving a prize of £50.

The prize winners will be announced on 9 June 2017 at 6.30pm in the Corridor Gallery at Sale Waterside Arts Centre.
