Photo Competition 2019
16 October 2019
The 2019 Brooklands members Photo Competition is now under way and we are delighted that professional photographer Jason Dodd is sponsoring the competition. He will also be our head judge choosing the final winners and offering a prize of a place on one of his photography courses to the overall adult winner.
Let your imagination take over - the photos can be of anything Brooklands related - Events, buildings, exhibits and more but they must have been taken in the last 12 months. The judges will be looking principally at the composition and its worth bearing in mind that, if you win, your picture could be on someone's wall for a month in the calendar!
To enter the competition send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org (Note: If you have difficulty with that email address please send to email@example.com )
