Lancashire and Lake District Life Reader Photos Competition 2011 - October
PUBLISHED: 01:16 03 October 2011 | UPDATED: 12:05 28 February 2013
Our judges will soon begin the difficult task of selecting three winners from the hundreds of brilliant entries to our photo competition
The pictures on these pages are just a small selection of the latest entries to our photographic competition which closes this month. Our judges will soon begin the nigh-on impossible task of choosing three top prize winners from more than 1300 pictures which have been uploaded to our site since the competition was launched in May.
But if you are not one of the lucky winners, dont worry the judges will also be looking for nine other shots to be used alongside the top three in our 2012 calendar.
The winners will be announced in our December magazine and every copy will include our super free calendar.
Lancashire Life picture editor John Cocks, who will lead our panel of judges, said: Every year the standard of entry to our photographic competition seems to get better. Some of the pictures readers have taken this year have been incredibly good.
They show how much creativity and talent there is among our readers to have captured some really striking images of all aspects of life in the county in all competitionweathers and from all angles. Were in for a tough time narrowing it down to 12 for the calendar, let alone choosing just three winners.
The competition has been sponsored by Wilkinsons Cameras and they have selected three superb pieces of equipment as prizes. The winners will receive a New Canon EOS 600D and EF-S 18-55 IS lens worth 750, a Canon Powershot S95 worth 300, and a new Canon Powershot SX220 HS worth 250.
And you can still be in with a chance of winning one of those great prizes but hurry, entries must be with us by October 7th.
Wilkinsons have produced some great prizes for our first competition. They are:
1st New Canon EOS 600D & EF-S 18-55 IS lens worth 750.00
2nd Canon Powershot S95 worth 300.00
3rd New Canon Powershot SX220 HS worth 250.00
