FW Photography Competition 2009

Enjoy taking photographs? Reckon you’ve taken a few extra special shots in your time? Maybe you can even give the professionals a run for their money behind the lens.

If so, you’ll want to enter Farmers Weekly’s 2009 Photography Competition. There are six categories, with £100 on offer for the best picture submitted in each. The categories are:

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



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 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.


A panel of judges – including FW group picture editor Jodie Deakin – will look at every picture submitted. The winning photo in each category – plus a selection of others – will be published in Farmers Weekly and on our website, FWi, over Christmas.

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.
