Start snapping for our annual photography competition in association with Wilkinson Cameras
Great photography doesn’t always need expensive kit and careful planning – sometimes you just need to be in the right place at the right time.
Bernard Noblett from Chorley was up early to get some shots of the morning sun slanting through the trees at Mawdesley. But within minutes of arriving he saw hares running and chasing and one of the pictures he took won our 2018 readers’ photography competition.
The examples in the online gallery are just some of the wonderful images submitted by Lancashire Life readers in recent weeks which have been entered into this year’s hunt for county’s best amateur photographer.
This year’s first prize is one of the new generation of mirrorless system cameras, a Canon EOS M50 camera with a 15-45mm lens, worth £649 provided by competition sponsors Wilkinson Cameras. Our second prize winner will receive a £150 Wilkinson Cameras gift voucher and the third prize is a £75 Wilkinson Cameras gift voucher.
All you have to do to enter is upload your best shots of Lancashire and the Lake District to our reader photo gallery.
You have until Friday September 27, 2019 to submit your entries. After that date our panel of judges, which will include Lancashire Life deputy editor Paul Mackenzie and David Parkinson from Wilkinson Cameras, will begin the hard task of choosing a top three. There are just two rules; the competition is not open to professional photographers and while the pictures can contain any subject matter – landscapes, wildlife, views or people – they must be taken in Lancashire or the Lake District.
