WINTER PHOTO COMPETITION

Along with winning fantastic prizes  all competitions in ILOVEOXF will have ‘a helping charity’ element to them.

Our Season Theme is Winter

If you’re brave enough to face the colder days, Winter is a magical and dramatic time of the year for photographs. 

The ice crystals, the mist and the starkness await your creative eye.   

We have some fantastic prizes up for grabs and we really hope you’ll give it a go.   

You will also be helping a Witney based Children’s cancer charity

Photographs can be any format and be Black and White or Colour.  

Try to be as imaginative as possible – and maybe set yourself a challenge. We’d love to see pictures that not only show off the season, but also your talent.  

You do not need to have great camera gear for a compelling photograph. Many of the images supplied to past competitions have been taken on mobile phones.

 

We would ask that all pictures submitted are new, not published, not previously used in photographic competitions and haven’t been made commercially available. 

Last Winter’s winning photograph was shot by Darrell Godliman in Oxford
