The NWN is searching for the area's best young photographers
AN iPad and new phones are up for grabs as the Newbury Weekly News launches its hunt for the district’s best young photographers.
The competition is open to youngsters from school years 5 to 13 and aims to encourage them to get involved in photography. The theme is ‘My Town’ and it is hoped that entrants will let their imaginations run wild as they chose one image that best illustrates how they see the town or village that they live in.
Photographs can be taken on a phone or tablet, with a digital camera or using good old film.
The judging panel will be led by the NWN’s award-winning photographer, Phil Cannings and there will be prizes given out in three age categories before an overall winner is crowned the Newbury Weekly News Young Photographer of the Year 2017. There will also be presentations to highly commended entrants.
All entries will be published in a special supplement in the Newbury Weekly News on Thursday, June 8th, with the winners announced the following week.
To enter you can email your photograph to firstname.lastname@example.org or post it to NWN Photography Competition, Newspaper House, Faraday Road, Newbury, RG14 2DW. Please include the following details with your entry: your name, address, school name, year group, contact phone number and email. If you are under 16-years-old please include the name and contact number of your parent/guardian.
Closing date for entries is April 30, 2017.
