WPC Emergency Isolation Photography competition

Dear members

Using extraordinary emergency Presidential powers, WPC will be holding additional photographic competitions during the emergency coronavirus lockdown period.  I invite ALL members to enter – especially if you have never submitted to a competition before (see below).

These competitions (there may be several depending on the length of the emergency period) are:

  • In addition to the regular WPC competitions
  • Designed to help with potential lockdown boredom
  • Encourage photography.
  • Create discussion at WPC Virtual meetings, if appropriate.

There will be two categories for each round:

  1. General member and
  2. Member who has never submitted an entry to a WPC competition

An additional prize will be awarded to the most amusing photograph (in either category)

Unfortunately the competition is for digital jpeg electronically submitted images only. Prints can not be submitted. I don’t want your germs!
