Snap into ac­tion for our an­nual pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion in as­so­ci­a­tion with Wilkin­son Cam­eras Cheshire Life: April 2019

Cheshire Life - - Readers’ Photos -

Here’s an in­cred­i­ble – if not eas­ily proved – statis­tic: 10 per cent of all the pho­to­graphs ever taken were taken in the last 12 months.

How­ever ac­cu­rate the fig­ure is, it’s un­de­ni­able that as most of us have a cam­era with us wher­ever we go now, it has never been so easy to take pho­to­graphs. It’s also hard to ar­gue that in this cor­ner of the coun­try we have some of the most pho­to­genic coun­try­side you’ll find any­where.

And we cel­e­brate this happy com­ing to­gether in our on­line gallery of read­ers’ pho­to­graphs. The ex­am­ples on these pages are just some of the won­der­ful images sub­mit­ted by Cheshire Life read­ers in re­cent weeks.

They have all been en­tered into our com­pe­ti­tion to find Cheshire’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 (pic­tured, right). Our sec­ond prize win­ner will re­ceive a £150 Wilkin­son Cam­eras gift voucher and the third prize is a £75 Wilkin­son Cam­eras gift voucher.

To be in with a chance of win­ning, up­load your best shots of Cheshire and the North Wales to our web­site.

You have un­til Fri­day Septem­ber 27, 2019 to sub­mit your en­tries. Af­ter that date our panel of judges, which will in­clude Cheshire 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 Cheshire or the North Wales.
