It’s time to clean up those Kodaks and lose those lens caps because Oracle is, once again, looking for its local photographers of the 4th year running! Again there are three categories this year, open to all ages – Local Wildlife, Local Landscape, and Local Architecture. The winner of each will receive a portrait shoot for themselves, their family or a friend and a printed canvas to keep, worth £150! They will also receive one-to-one beginners’ mentoring by local, award-winning, professional photographer, Keith Hoskins, of Picture Perfect photographic studio, based in Chalkwell.
Not only that, but the winning entries will also feature in Oracle magazine and be put on display in Picture Perfect’s studio window on the Ridgeway! You may use any camera, including smartphones, but your pictures must be high-resolution and of good enough quality to reproduce in the magazines. All entries may be used by Oracle for any other purpose and the author will be credited where practicable.
To enter, please send in up to three photos (one per category) with titles and/or a brief description, along with your contact details, to our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Monday 20th August 2018. If you are under 18, please also include your age as this will be taken into account during judging.
Give it your best shot!
To help you take that perfect picture, Keith has a few hints and tips to help you on your way:
Good luck everyone!
