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

As part of its celebrations for Festival Week, Sale Festival 2021 is running a Photographic Competition for keen Amateur Photographers on the theme of

“Power and Energy”

Power and Energy are all around us all the time.  Whether it’s an athlete straining to go faster, or a weightlifter lifting a heavy weight, or the many other human related activities that make us sweat !!   Mechanical machines that we take for granted in everyday life – such as locomotives, engines, cars and motorbikes all exude  Power and Energy in their own way.  And how about a forest fire or lightening strikes, or massive waves crashing onto a beach, or anything else you care to think of that depicts the theme in the way you want to interpret it. The list is endless.

So with this theme in mind, we would like to see your pictures that you believe depicts this theme most fittingly.

You can enter up to 4 Digital Images with a maximum image size of 10MB, but ideally 1600×1200 pixels which is the best size for digital projection.

The winner of the Senior Competition will receive a fabulous prize of £50, which will be presented to them during Festival Week, with runners up prizes of £25 for 2nd place and £10 for 3rd place.

There is also a Junior Section for Photographers up to 16 years of age, with the winner receiving a prize of £25.

The adjacent Flyer depicts some images on the theme and gives more information.

We look forward to seeing your entry and wish you the best of luck.
