Go wild and enter the Crosspool Festival 2017 photo competition

2017 Crosspool Festival 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+)

The closing date for entries is Monday 29 May Sunday 11 June.

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

Remember to include:

  • 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 best three in each category will be put on the Crosspool Forum website http://www.crosspool.info where voting for the winners will take place. The exhibition at St Columba’s will display all the entries on Thursday 29 June from 1.30pm-4.30pm. You can also meet photographers from Sheffield Photographic Society, see their photos on display and ask them your photo questions. The winners will be announced at St Columba’s on Thursday 29 June at 4pm. Tea and coffee will be provided by St Columba’s. The prizes will be awarded at the Summer Fayre on Saturday 1 July.

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+)

There are just over four weeks left to send in any photos you’d like considering for next year’s Crosspool Calendar.

The deadline to submit your pictures is Wednesday 30 September.

If you own any of your own photos – old or new – that you’d like to be considered for inclusion in the 2016 calender, please email them to crosspoolforum@fsmail.net, with the subject line ‘2016 calendar photos’ remembering to include your name, address and telephone number.

We’re after a variety of views, eras and seasons and it doesn’t matter if your photo is taken on a cheap camera or phone.

Remember, you must own the copyright for any photo that you submit. And by sending us the photo you agree that we can use it on the Crosspool Calendar, Crosspool News website, social media and for any other promotional means.

Money raised will help Crosspool Forum funds for local events and improvements to our neighbourhood.

All 300 copies of the 2015 edition sold in a few weeks. The calendar featured Crosspool scenes from over the years. Many of the photos in the calendar were taken by local residents, plus there were some archive shots showing familiar locations looking very different in times gone by.
