BritsNîmes Photo Competition 2020


Revised Subject -
"Water around the World"

With regulations in France easing and life returning to the “new normal”, you have a few months left to get out your cameras and mobile phones to catch a few entries for the Photo Competition.
The subject for this year was “Water in Occitanie” but, as many of our members haven’t been able to be in Occitanie this year, and may not be able to return for quite some time, we’ve decided to increase the scope of the photo competition. 

So get out your cameras and take plenty of photos of:
“Water around the World”
which, of course, includes Occitanie and the rest of France.
Wherever you are in the world, you now have free rein to take photos of anything watery - your nearest/favourite beach, the flood in your garden, the waterfall you saw on holiday, the children jumping in paddling pools .......
In spite of everything, we’ve already received a few entries, so take a look at them at:  

You don’t need to be a keen photographer or have expensive equipment to be able to produce good photos. 
It’s the picture that matters, and remember that the finalists will be selected by an online vote of all the members, so if you like the photo other members will probably like it as well.
Entries must be attached to an email and sent to by 25th October 2020.
The number of entries may need to be limited before voting starts, but for the time being you can enter as many photos as you like and then choose later which ones to use as your final entries.
It will be possible to swap photos right up to the closing date.
It’s simple, it’s free, and you could win a valuable prize so you have nothing to lose!
Happy clicking,
