PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION

The Greenwich Society would like to invite the photographers among its members – novices, casual holiday snappers, hobbyists and serious practitioners – to enter a photography competition illustrating their interpretations of the many aspects of Greenwich, seen between the start of the first lockdown in March 2020 and the coming Spring, that make it such a very special place.

Photo entries (submitted as digital files) will be welcome from anyone in a member household, taken with a smartphone or digital camera, in any of 8 categories (4 adult and 4 for the under-16s), up to a maximum of 6 photos per entrant.

The Peter Harris Trust has kindly donated generous prizes of £100 for adult winners and £50 for under-16 winners in each of the categories.

The winning images will be published in the Newsletter and they, together with the runners up and highly commended photos, will also feature on the Society’s website and Facebook page. The Greenwich Society will also arrange for the winning entries to be printed, mounted and framed before being shown in exhibitions to be held locally – in both East and West Greenwich – preceded by a prize giving ceremony as soon as the circumstances will allow.

The photo competition will open on Monday 1st February and it will close on 1st June 2021. So, even if members haven’t yet been able to get a suitable photo during the very strange year to date, there are still four months in which to do so.
