Rotary Wellington, like many other Rotary organisations in Great Britain and Ireland, run several youth competitions.  If you were aged between 7 and 17 on 31 August 2021, and have an interest in photography, consider entering our Young Photographer competition. There are three competitions for different age groups (a) 7-10 years of age (b) 11-13 years and (c) 14-17 years. Winners of our local competitions may progress to district, regional and national competitions.

To enter, a competitor must produce a portfolio of three photographs based upon the theme, ‘Colours of Nature’ in colour or black and white. The photographs must be submitted individually. Each photo should be no larger than A4 size. Photographs taken using a mobile phone are eligible for submission.

Entrants will be required to provide a digital copy in jpg format and ideally 5MB in size (Please note that the digital photograph must not exceed 15MB in size). If necessary, it is acceptable to send the photographs and supporting information across several emails.

To accompany the portfolio, each entrant must provide a brief sentence describing the relationship of each photograph to the theme (‘Wild Nature’).  Entries will not be considered without this supporting information.

Please note that photographs of people under 18 years old must be accompanied by written permission from the parent, guardian or carer of the person(s) photographed.

The winning entry in each age category in our local competition will receive a gift card to the value of £30.

The latest submission date for entries to the 2021/22 competition is Friday 18th February 2022.

Judges will consider technical merit; content and composition; imagination and style.
