And the winner with flying colours is…

July 22, 2011
We’ve been flying high this week on our Facebook wall with all your entries to our flying photos competition. I’ve been really impressed by the wildlife shots, some really stunning photos that must have taken a lot of patience. There have also been plenty of colourful hot air balloons and some thrilling daredevil hang gliding and skydiving. Have you no fear?!     Ok on to the important business of the day, our winners… In first place with flying colours it’s congratulations to Bob Small for this amazing sea king shot, which looks like a movie still. Bob has called it ‘Last flight of the Day’. The photo was taken when he went to an open evening at RNAS Merryfield. Great atmosphere to this one Bob and a very worthy winner – you’ve won yourself a Canvas Print.     For completely different reasons we’ve a runner up prize too. Well done Kirsty Welburn you’ve won £15 credit to spend at PhotoBox for your creativity. It’s simple yet genius at the same time and really made me smile – love it! Next photo challenge is waiting in the wings

July 19, 2011
I was thrilled to see so many of you seize the chance to join in our Urban photo competition. With prize money of £45 credit to spend at PhotoBox there was everything to play for. Lots of your ran with the graffiti theme, an instant indicator of an urban shot. I spotted some famous landmarks but also plenty of fascinating unknown back streets. I have to say there were quiet a few vying for pole position for this one. It’s been a truly tough call but today’s winner is this colourful shot from Jenny Chapelhow, well done Jenny.     We’ve also an eye-catching runner up from Denis O’Donovan, which wins you £15 to spend at PhotoBox.

Join our urban photo competition

July 15, 2011
Are you ready for another competition? Our next challenge has a completely different feel from the last one. This time we’re after edgy urban shots. Thinking caps on, that could mean an eye-catching cityscape, or it could be a portrait shot in an urban environment. It’s a great excuse to take a fresh look at the architecture around you and come up with some interesting angles.   A big thank you to one of our previous winners Danielle Kalinovskis Evans for suggesting the urban theme and to another Danielle and like-minded photographer Danielle Marijke Sapherson, for providing this inspiring shot to get us started. I’m looking forward to judging this one already and there’s £45 credit to spend at PhotoBox for the winner. Usual rules apply, that’s a maximum of two photos per person posted on our Facebook wall complete with caption. Deadline is midnight Monday 18th July. Good luck and enjoy your weekend

We’ve a winning ‘You what?!’ photo for you

July 15, 2011
Wow another action packed week has whizzed by. The excitement in the office has been Ben’s birthday and a brand new coffee machine. Our Vic also treated us to a charity bake with a selection of sweet treats in exchange for a donation to the East Africa Crisis Appeal. All that activity means that I was happily fuelled by cakes and caffeine as I sat down to judge the latest photo competition. Your entries proved to be another irresistible treat! The theme was ‘You What?!’ leaving you lots of scope to get really creative.   Many of you grabbed the opportunity to embarrass your friends & family by sharing snaps of some of the bizarre things they do. There have also been weird and wonderful spur of the moment shots as you’ve seen something silly that’s made you smile, including lots of strange signs.   Today’s winning photo is one of those signs. Congratulations to Jonathan Bagge for this priceless photo, you’ve given everyone in the office a good giggle. Anyone want to confess? Jonathan you’ve won £45 to spend at PhotoBox.     Another competition coming right up!
