BritsNîmes Photo Competition 2017

BritsNîmes Photo Competition 2017

Summer is here, so if you haven’t taken many pictures yet NOW 
is the time to start thinking about photos that you could enter for the BritsNîmes Photo Competition 2017.
The competition is open to all members and 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.

The subject for this year is :


 which can be anything from a drop to an ocean - 
so let your imagination roam.
We’ve now had a number of entries for this year’s Photo Competition which you can see by visiting

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:

The photo must be taken by a BritsNîmes member.
It must have been taken after October 2016.
It must be attached to an email and sent to by 22nd October 2017.

ou can't enter more than 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 as 27cm x 20cm prints at the Christmas Lunch.
Each entrant will be limited to a maximum of 2 photos amongst the finalists
and only one prize will be allowed per person. 
Don't hold back because you think your photos aren't good enough. 
If you like them the chances are 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,
