Photography competition for local Crosby school children announced, with £50 1st prize!

CROSBY Camera Club has announced a junior photography competition with the chance to win a 1st prize of £50.

The competition, which is sponsored by The Rotary Club of Crosby, is open to children and young adults living in the Crosby, Waterloo and Thornton area, aged between 7 and 17 years old.

The subject of the competition is 'My Crosby' and entrants are free to interpret this theme in any way they choose.

Crosby Camera Club has already enlisted the support of 16 local schools to encourage their pupils to enter the competition by taking a photograph and entering it as a 7x5 inch print.

Margaret Quayle, chair of Crosby Camera Club, said:- "We're pleased to be able to join forces with Crosby Rotary Club and run this competition to find the talented young artists in our community. With so many of us owning a camera or camera phone it's important that we encourage young people to get creative when taking photographs. We're used to seeing photographs on a screen, but our competition encourages children to make a print, something physical they can hold in their hand, and enter that for others to appreciate."

To enter, children will need a flyer containing the competition rules and details which they can obtain from their school or from 'Tilly Mints' on Cooks Road, Crosby, or 'County Gallery Framing' on College Road, Crosby.

Then return the print and the flyer with the child's name, address, age and school on the back to wherever they got the flyer from, with only 1 entry per person allowed.

There are 2 separate categories for juniors, aged 7 to 11, and young adults, aged 12 to 17.

The winners of each category will receive a prize of £50 plus a trophy, and certificates will be awarded to the runners up at a presentation evening, on Tuesday, 21 March 2017, at St Luke's Church, Crosby, at 7pm.

Prints must be entered by 3 March 2017 and further details are available from Crosby Camera Club's website.
