UKPlus Photo Competition
A free-to-enter online photographic competition with a top prize of £1,000 has been launched.
The competition is being organised by Associated Northcliffe Digital and can be found at http://ukplus.co.uk/uk/photos/competition
Anyone can take part and photos can be on any theme – the only condition is that they must have been taken somewhere in the UK.
Visitors to the site can rate the pictures they like best and the top 10 most highly rated entries will form a shortlist. A winner will be chosen from this shortlist by a professional photographer.
The deadline for entries is May 10, 2007, after which there will be a two-week period when no new entries will be accepted but voting can continue. A winner will then be selected based on quality and not on the number of votes cast or the image’s rating.
Julie Bayley, project editor for Derby-based AND, said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in photography to display their work free of charge on the world wide web. The rating functionality on the site means photographers can gauge other people’s response to their image. And, of course, the £1,000 prize for the best photo is an added incentive to enter.”
