Theme: ‘What a Fine Doorway!’

Entries

The entry form is here: Photo comp guidelines 2020

The subject chosen must be currently in existence within the county of Worcestershire. The photograph must be taken not more than three months before it is submitted for this competition.

Submissions will be judged in two categories: Individual and Society. Any member individual, or member society, can submit one entry per year. Please indicate in which category the submission is to be judged.

Each photograph a) the building itself and b) the doorway of that building should be accompanied by an account, up to 300 words, of how the subject meets the competition’s theme. See Judging details for guidelines.

Photographs should be submitted in jpg. format by email to chairman@wlhf.org.uk by 30 September 2019.

Submissions will receive confirmation of arrival by email. If no confirmation is made within five days of submission, an email enquiry should be made about its progress.

There will be a first prize of £50 and a second prize of £25 in each section. The prizes will be presented at the Annual General Meeting, where entrants may choose to have five minutes to talk about their photograph.

Copyright of photographs remains with the photographer, but submission of a photograph confers the right of the WLHF to use that photograph in the course of its normal activities, which excludes any commercial use.

Judging details

Photographs will be judged on the following:

  1. Your description of the building’s location and period of history it reflects – 25%
  2. The reason you chose this doorway – 25%
  3. Why your photographs might appeal to a wider general audience and be worthy of display in an exhibition to promote interest in Worcestershire heritage – 50%

The judges’ decision is final. No appeals will be heard.

There will be three judges, none of whom will know the identity of the group or individual who has made an entry. If YOU would like to be a judge, please email Cora Weaver at chairman@wlhf.org.uk. The judges’ decisions will be declared at the WLHF AGM on Saturday, 14 November 2020 starting at 2pm in The Hive.
