It really is a FUN comp.
PHOTO COMPETITION T&Cs
It's time to dust off your cameras and get snapping - announcing a new club photo competition. Digital only, I'm afraid, but we thought it would be fun to have an evening of showing some photos of aircraft - model and full-size - and turn it into a little competition.
We propose 5 categories - 4 still images and one video:
- member with model
- member's model in flight
- full size, either airforce or civilian
- any other modelling activity (flying, building, socialising , crashing etc.)
- video, 2 minute max, of any modelling activity.
This is planned for our October meeting to give you plenty of time to take new photos or to search out your best from your files. Enter up to 2 still images in each category, maximum file size 2mb. And send your entries to me 3-4 weeks before the meeting and I will put them randomly into presentations and we can all vote for our favourites. And maybe an overall favourite.
Hopefully we'll get enough entries to have a fun evening with lots of good images.
Alan will display the entries using our projector and 80” screen.
Remember, you can use your mobile phone or iPad (or smart equivalents) to take the photo/s / video.
Any questions, talk to Alan B (email@example.com)
