Variations! Always a variation each month in the photo competition – this time, partly because it’s starting late, and partly because, well, Covid-19. Do you think, in the future, “2020” and “Covid” will be interchangeable as a swear word? I suspect so. Anyways!
The August-September 2020 Photo Competition will run from today (Thursday, August 19th) until Friday, September 25th – about 5 weeks.
Given current restrictions on getting out and about, one Tracy Dasler has come to my rescue with two wonderful theme suggestions. You can see which one I chose below in the Ts and Cs.
I run this photo competition for a number of reasons, but primarily, it’s to help us focus on the natural beauty that surrounds us. The wonder of what we have right here, every day. And you all answer that with the most amazing photos, for which I am eternally grateful. This time around I really would like to emphasise that. Stage 4 is not fun for very many people, and there is very little that we can do but follow the rules, and hope that Covid-19 departs sooner rather than later.
This competition I hope will alleviate in some small way part of what we’re all going through together.
A few reminders for the competition:
- a selection of entries from the year, including all of the winners, will be combined into a Calendar for 2021, which will be for sale, with all proceeds going to Cardinia Shire CFA Brigades and SES units (and entrants may choose to opt out of this).
- there is a maximum of three (3) photo entries per person per competition
… and the standard Ts and Cs and guff for the August/September 2020 Photo Competition:
- The photo must be taken within Cardinia Shire.
- The photographer should “Like” the Guide to Cardinia Facebook page (nothing new there)
- It runs from the 19th of August to Friday, the 25th of September.
- Photos must be posted (or messaged) to the A Guide to Cardinia Facebook page and tagged “Photo Competition”, along with where they were taken.
- The theme for the August-September 2020 Photo Competition is “In Your Backyard” (Front Yard is ok too)
- The photograph does not have to be taken in the same month as the competition it is entered in – but each photo can only be entered once.
- The photo should be landscape (that is, wider than it is tall).
