Young Photographer 2018/19

It’s that time of the year again to take of the lens cap, load up your memory card and focus on the new Rotary Young Photographer competition.

We are looking for entrants to capture “The Beauty of Nature” the scope of the theme is as broad as you would like to make it. The pictures can be all of the same genre or a mixture but need to highlight how anything in nature can have its’ own beauty and can be interpreted, captured to make a pleasing, interesting image.

Experiment with different styles and camera controls, viewpoints etc. choose your three favourite images and submit three of them printed on photographic paper up to a maximum of A4 each one having a small sentence explaining about the picture and what you are aiming to portray in the image.

The competition is open to all schools and college communities including those that are home educated and any other young peoples’ community organisations, for example, community RotaKids, community Interact, Scout Groups, Girl Guides.

There are three age groups:

Junior 7 to 10 years old  / Intermediate    11 to 13 years old  / Senior  14 to 17 years old

on 31 August 2018.
