Garden club photo competition categories 2021

  1. 1. Still life from the garden
  2. Using items from the garden, construct a still life. These could be plants, stones, seed heads etc. For inspiration see Evelyn Hoffer here or John Blakemore

2. Wildlife

From mini beasts to badgers and beyond, all creatures big and small are welcome. For expert advice watch this really good country file episode here of Simon King talking about how to take photographs.


3. Pet portrait

Images that capture the character of a pet, is not confined to photographs of just the face or head.


4. Views of the valley

This landscape category is about exploring the area we live in with fresh eyes. For inspiration check out, Charlie Waite here or Faye Godwin.


5. Village life

In an upside down chaotic time this category is about a celebration of community, what we have and what we may have (temporarily) lost.


6. Diptych

We often think of photographs as a singular object, this category explores the creative possibilities when 2 images are put together, they can explore shape, time, colour etc. When submitting either join the 2 images together or name them indicating which is the left and which the right.
