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