    Young Photographer Competition

    Enter our exciting competition!

    Readers of Young Photographer magagzine are invited to send in their very best photos. This competition takes place annualy and aims to encourage ambitious young photographers to develop their talents.

    We begin accepting entries just before schools finnish their summer break on July 22nd. The closing date for entries will be Setember 22nd if you are sending your photos by post. But please note it is September 30th if you email them via our new website.

    What can I photograph?

    We would like to see pictures on the subjects of animals, friends, family, landscapes or sport.The photos shoud cover at least two of these areas.

    Animals or people that you know well are often, but not always, the best choice of subject. We recommend that you think carefully about how to make a photo look interesting and original. Colour, action and humour are always popular with the judges.

    General advice about taking good photographs

    If you haven't taken a lot of photos before, don't worry. In fact, the majorityof our previous winners had owned a camera for only a short time before their success! If you need ideas, take a llok at past copies of Young Photographer and experiment with some of the suggestions and the advice you find there.

    Remember you generally don't need a lot of complicated, expensive technology. However, if you want to take photographs of, for example, butterflies you will need to have special equipment to allow you to focus very closely and for any photograph you take, please pay special attention to the light. Every year we see many lovely ideas for pictures spoilt because photographers do not get this right.

    How to enter

    It is not necessary for you to print your photographs and send them in the post. However, this is possible if you wish. If you are posting them, remember to put your name and address on the back. You might prefer - as most people do these days - to enter through our website. All you need to do is follow the simple instructions on the homepage.
