BritsNîmes Photo Competition 


" Water around the world "

With regulations in France easing and life returning to the "new normal"; it's time to get out your cameras and mobile phones to catch a few possible 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" - wherever you are in the world you now have free rein to take photos of anything watery - your nearest or 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 by all our members, so if YOU like the photo, it means other members will probably like it as well!

Entries must be attached to an email and sent to on or before 

25 October 2020.
