Here’s an easy and fun competition for the whole family.  You don’t have to be an expert, so submit your best images and who knows, you could be a winner!

Theme:                   ‘Celebrations’ (eg could feature red, white and blue flowers, sweets, or beach huts, people, cars; or maybe a picture of you with the Queen; someone dressed as a Royal person; or a friendly corgi perhaps?).  Be imaginative!

Age groups:        

  1. School Year 9 and below
  2. Adult


  • Local life
  • Fun and excitement
  • ‘Taken on the day’ during Jubilee celebrations (special category, see later)


  •                  Bring your pictures to the Reading Room before 10.00 on 3 June 2012 ready for display
  •                  Put your precious prints in an envelope and leave at the Post Office (thanks Christine)
  •                  Hand in your images at Cheviot House (Church End)


Please:                Write your name, telephone, age (if Year 9 or under) on the back

If your image is of a person, ask their permission

Judging:                We are honoured to have a local expert as our judge

Other:                     Maximum of three (3) pictures per person please

Images should be ready for a wall display, or in a frame to be stood on a table

All the pictures will be exhibited in the Reading Room during the celebrations

Consideration will be given for simplicity, impact and elegance.  Image enhancing software may be used if you wish, and phone pictures are perfectly acceptable.  We not going to be able to judge videos, perhaps next time!

The best images will be displayed on the Weston Colville Stories site (www.westoncolvillestories.org.uk) where you can also find all the full details of the competition

All pictures can be collected from the Reading Room at the end of the afternoon


Special category:

Those entries submitted on or before the Jubilee Day will be judged as part of the celebrations and prizes awarded then.  There is also another category for pictures taken at any time during the celebrations – we’re calling this ‘Taken on the Day’.  These need to be submitted by 10 June 2012 and the results will be announced on 12 June 2012.  The age groups and other requirements remain the same.


So why wait, get out your camera and send in your best pictures!
