Wotton Times – Young People’s Photography Competition – Closing Date Dec 1st 2018

Roll up, roll up…. there’s a photography competition on for school age children in the Wotton Times’ area running up to Dec 1st 2018

The theme is Autumn… this is a nice broad theme so photographers can really run with it.

We’re inviting all school age children in the Wotton area to really consider this theme and to take a photo/s which expresses autumn to them…. here’s some inspiration:

  • What does autumn mean to you?
  • What signifies autumn?
  • What makes you think autumn has arrived?
  • How can we look at autumn in a different way?
  • What colour palette makes us think of autumn?
  • How does this season make us feel?
  • Is autumn all about trees?
  • What else means autumn to you?

There are two £30 Wotton voucher prizes, two £15 runner up Wotton voucher prizes and a digital camera – all waiting to be won.

The Wotton vouchers can be spent in any of the many shops in Wotton-under-Edge. The closing date is December 1st 2018 at midnight.


Here’s more info…


Two WINNERS will win £30 Wotton vouchers each – one from the primary category, one from secondary.
Two RUNNER UPS will win £15 Wotton vouchers each – one from the primary category, one from secondary.
The above voucher prizes are being supplied by Paul Groom Photography.

There is also a KODAK DIGITAL CAMERA which will be awarded to the image which has shown the most interesting or creative approach to the subject.

The competition closing date is the end of the day on Dec 1st so get out there taking photos and email your photo, along with your/your child’s name and age, to Entrants must be in the Wotton Times’ circulation area. From their website this is described as: “Wotton-under-Edge, Kingswood, Charfield, Wickwar and the surrounding villages.”
Children can submit more than one image each.

What’s a Wotton Voucher?
That’s a good question! When asked to come up with a prize for this competition, Paul thought it’d be nice for the prizes to be spent in Wotton, so he came up with a Wotton Voucher. Basically the winners can nominate a shop where they’d like to spend the prize and Paul will visit and get a gift voucher for them!
