BritsNîmes Photo Competition 2017

BritsNîmes Photo Competition 2019

"Out and About in Southern France"

[  “a la decouverte autour du sud de la France”  ]

If you went to the Christmas Lunch last year, or bought the 2019 BritsNîmes Calendar, you will have seen some of the photos that were entered for last year's Photo Competition and hopefully been inspired to have a go yourself this year.

Entries for this year's BritsNîmes Photo Competition 2019
close on Sunday 20th October so you have just a few weeks to capture those final snaps and send them in before the closing date.

The entries for this year can be seen at:

The rules are simple:
Photos must be taken in 2019.
Entries must be attached to an email and sent to by 20th October 2019.
You can only enter 3 photos.
The photographer must be a BritsNîmes member so if you haven’t already renewed your membership for 2019-20 now is the time to rejoin.
That's it!

Here are a few tips that may help you:
You can swap photos until 13th October.
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.
Only 1 of your photos can amongst the finalists.

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 snapping
