Entries are already pouring in for this year’s Farmers Weekly Photography Competition.


The six categories in this prestigious competition cover the whole range of farming and rural life, so send us your best shots and you could be on your way to winning a share of £700 of prize money and seeing your shots published in FW.

The six categories (£100 first prize in each) are:

| Arable scenes| Livestock scenes| Nature/wildlife/landscape| People (including kids)| Pets| Humour|

HOW YOU GET PHOTOS TO US

EMAIL THEM

You can email them to fwphotocomp@rbi.co.uk

If you would like to enter different pictures in more than one category, you should send a separate email for each category containing the appropriate picture(s).

Please write your surname and the category that the attached picture(s) is being entered for in the subject line of every email you send.

Then, in the body of the email, be sure to include your full name, your address and a daytime phone number.

Digital pictures need to be a reasonable size – so each one should be bigger than 200KB but no one photo should be larger than 3MB.

UPLOAD THEM INTO THE WEBSITE

Upload them direct to our website here

This is quick and easy to do and there are instructions at that web address as to how to do it.

WHAT HAPPENS THEN

A panel of judges – including FW group picture editor Jodie Deakin – will look at every picture submitted.

This competition is not open to professional photographers and any one person can enter a maximum of six images. FW may publish the winning and commended photos more than once.

The closing date is Friday, 4 December 2009.

Early next year, we’ll give our website users the chance to pick their “winners of winners” by picking an overall favourite from those taking the top spot in each of the categories and another £100 (in addition to the prize for winning the category) will go to the person who took this shot.
