Enter the 2018 Crosspool Festival photo competition!

The theme of this year’s photo competition is the contribution of women in the world. Your entry could include a portrait picture of a mother, sister, or inspiring friend, or someone you look up to and admire.

We don’t just want portraits, though. Your entry could, for example, reflect one or more of the colours and values of the Suffragettes. These were purple which symbolised dignity, white for purity and green which symbolised hope.

You can interpret the theme in any way you like 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 Monday 11 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. The winner’s photo could also be included 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 15 June and close on Monday 2 July.

Go wild and enter the Crosspool Festival 2017 photo competition

2017 Crosspool Festival photo competition

Deadline extended to Sunday 11 June – get your entries in now!

To enter the competition, take a great photo on the theme of Crosspool WILD and email it to crosspoolfestivalphotos@gmail.com.

Use your imagination to portray wildness in Crosspool. Perhaps you might want to capture wildlife such as our birds, animals, trees and plants. Perhaps you take a snap of something or someone that has a wild look or appearance, or you capture an emotion, such as wild enthusiasm, excitement, joy or even anger. We also have some amazingly out-of-this-world events and activities here in Crosspool, including some wild weather at times! So there are plenty of opportunities to go wild with.

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

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+)
