Dragonfly/Damselfly Photo Comp

I know that there are some very good Dragonfly/Damselfly photos floating around various forum members, you may be interested to learn that British Waterways is currently running a comp looking for such shots. On offer is 100 prize for the winning entry.

There is also a junior comp for U14s looking for shots of wildlife near canals or rivers, 50 voucher for the winner here.

The link to follow is

Good luck, let us know how you get on.

Neil

Re: Dragonfly/Damselfly Photo Comp

I had a deja vu moment here, was sure I'd replied but it was on the other site.

Do you know if the pictures have to have been taken this year and also what's the best size for emailing?

To me the rules seem very vague and inclusive. I wasn't sure if you can send more than one. It does say images at one point. So I might send in a CD of three..?? I'll keep looking but it isn't 100% clear.

On size it says highest quality which means large sizes. They will send to magazines if you win.

Yes it is very vague.

I sent two versions of the same picture one at 960x1280 and one at 600x800 both compressed at 12,so they are about 1 meg and 500kb respectivly.
See what happens

Re: Dragonfly/Damselfly Photo Comp

I've put four different ones on a CD (as I don't want to email them). Good luck to all who try.

Re: Dragonfly/Damselfly Photo Comp

I have checked back on this a number of times and can now share that the site has finally posted the winning pictures.

http://www.waterscape.com/features-a...tition-results

I don't think we have any winners here so no giving up on the day job. But it is the taking part that counts.
