The winning photo in last year’s photo competition

To enter the competition, take a great photo that shows ACTION and email it to us. It doesn’t need to capture movement in the photo as that is technically quite challenging but just something that suggests some action is about to happen or that there is a sense of movement.

Remember, the photo should make an impact, tell a story and follow the theme of ACTION.

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 Sunday 19 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.
