BritsNîmes Photo Competition 2017

BritsNîmes Photo Competition 2017

Easter is now over, with plenty of good weather to come, so it’s time to start thinking about this year's Photo Competition.

Those who were at the Christmas Lunch will have seen some of the photos that were entered for last year's competition, and will hopefully have been inspired to have a go themselves this year.  

You don't need to be a keen photographer or have expensive equipment to be able to produce very good photos - some of last year's finalists were taken on mobile phones and inexpensive cameras.

If you want to see last year's entries they are still online at: 

The subject for this year is :


 which can be anything from a drop to an ocean and everything in between. 
To widen the scope even further, water-related subjects such as boats etc 
can be included, so let your creativity fly.

Unlike previous competitions the photos don’t have to be taken in the Gard so everyone can join in wherever they are.

The rules are simple:

Photos must be taken by a BritsNîmes member.

They must have been taken between :
October 2016 and 22nd October 2017

They must be attached to an email and send to : 

You can only enter 3 photos

That's it!
Here are a few tips that may help you:

For the time being you can enter as many photos as you like and then choose later which ones to withdraw if you have more than 3.

It will be possible to swap photos right up to the closing date.

A shortlist of 12 photos will be chosen by an online vote of all BritsNîmes members and displayed at the AGM/Christmas Lunch, when the winners will be picked by those attending.

A limit of 2 photos per person will be permitted amongst the finalists and only one prize will be awarded to any entrant.

Don't hold back because you think your photos aren't good enough.
If you like them the chances are that other members will like them as well.

It's simple, it's free, and you could win a valuable prize 
so you have nothing to lose.

Happy clicking,
