A Year in Crosspool

‘A Year in Crosspool’, is the theme for this year’s Photography Competition.

We anticipate people will want to submit images that have meaning to them in relation to the last year. Perhaps it will reflect some of the hardships and challenges, or some of the more uplifting aspects of human nature and life in Crosspool. It could even be something to illustrate how you, or someone you know, has developed personally, perhaps learning a new skill or activity.

You can submit any image you like (within the bounds of decency!) but remember, the photo should make an impact and tell a story.

How to enter

Categories are open to anyone living/working/studying in the area and are as follows:

  • Primary (5-11 yrs)
  • Secondary (12-18 yrs)
  • Adult (19 yrs+)
    Closing date for entries is Tuesday 1 June

Email your photo as a jpg to: crosspoolfestivalphotos@gmail.com

  • Please state:
  • Your name
  • Age category
  • Your contact email and phone number
  • A caption for your photo so the judges clearly understand by your description what is happening in the photo.

There will be prizes for all the category winners and their photo framed. All entries will be considered for featuring in the Crosspool Calendar.

The public select the winning photographs.

The shortlisted best three in each category will be put on the Crosspool Forum website http://www.crosspool.info and voting for the winners will start from Friday 11 June and close on Tuesday 29 June The winners will be announced on Wednesday 30 June 2021.
