The Theme, oddly enough is:  Life in Lockdown

Closing Date: Sunday, April 12th

The underlying aim is to make as many people in the village make a photographic record of some aspect of home life during this difficult period.

Please encourage your children to participate

The competition is kindly being judged by Jonathan Pow. He is a professional photographer who regularly contributes to national and local newspapers. (including The Yorkshire Post).

Because we want to create a level playing field and not disadvantage the novice photographers, the competition is open only to photographs taken with a mobile phone or tablet.

All photographs will be displayed here on our village gallery .
