Buzz Photography Competition 2017




In addition to submitting photographs to the website as parts of general galleries, we are also planning a competition in association with Ffotogallery, where the winner will be featured as our Facebook and Twitter cover photos, and be featured in an upcoming exhibition. Each month we set a new theme (see below). Photographers are invited to take 5-10 images as part of an album related (however loosely) to the theme. Grab your camera – whatever kind you have – and get creative. Then submit it for everyone to see. If you need some inspiration, check out the images already in the gallery. To see last year’s winners, click here.

The remaining themes for the year are listed below. To be included we need 5-10 images by 20th of each previous month (for example, the September images will be needed by 20th August):

February Issue Legends (no winner selected, this photo competition is OPEN)
March Issue Wales (won by RAYMOND BANNISTER)
April Issue Music (won by ERIC AYDIN-BARBERINI)
May Issue Festivity
June Issue Excess
July Issue Summer
