Photographic Competition

Photographic Competition 2018

The title for the Ayrshire Hospice Photographic Competition this year is ‘Castles of Ayrshire’.  The theme is open to personal interpretation but we’re looking for beautiful photographs of Ayrshire’s many Castles, not just featuring the Castle itself but its beautiful landscapes.  Or perhaps a different twist would be a stunning garden shot taken from inside the Castle or the turret of a Castle with a landscape in the distance.  The Castle does not need to be whole, a ruin can be just as picturesque and we are looking for all the Season’s to be represented.

The twelve photos selected by the judges will appear in the Ayrshire Hospice calendar 2019 raising monies for the Ayrshire Hospice.

The closing date for entries is midnight Sunday 13th May 2018.  The person who takes the winning photo wins a £150 voucher generously donated by Vennal Cameras, Ayr.

The images must be in colour, of a high quality, high resolution in landscape format.  The photographs will be printed approx. 6.5” x 4.5” so a dpi of 300 for this size of picture is preferred.
