Urban Living Photo Competition – Closed

You are invited to take part in our photo competition which is only open to amateur photographers, the theme being “Urban Living”.

You do not have to have a fancy, expensive DSLR, just the skill needed to capture your vision on whatever you have to hand; a point-and-shoot, a camera phone, a still from a movie camera!

Please submit your photographs as a .jpg file, maximum 800 pixels wide, and no more than 200k filesize. You are allowed to enter as many photographs as you want and all photographs remain the copyright of the photographer. We may retain the right to publish your photograph on the Bloor website, in which case attribution will be given under the Creative Commons licence, so please include a URL to where you may have the image online (your website, blog, Flickr account etc).

Please note that associates of Bloor, and their families, are not permitted to submit entries.

Photographs will be judged by a panel of 4, all of whom are avid photo enthusiasts within Bloor. Best photos will be sent a signed photo book entitled “Reflections on Nelson Mandela“. Selected photos will be notified by email of their prize, with one exceptional photo being awarded a framed print of their entry, size to be determined. Please ensure you leave all contact details upon submission of your entry. Notification will also go into August’s issue of our newsletter, along with the chosen photos.

Winners will be notified by 1st August 2012, by email. Good luck!


Reflections on Nelson Mandela

Reflections by Nelson Mandela

In this book Nelson Mandela’s life and achievements are celebrated in words and images that span the globe.

Antoinette Hasselhorst has captured Mandela on camera on a number of occasions. Here she combines her outstanding portraiture with a series of tributes (from a rich mixture of celebrities and others).

…But the spirit of ideals will perhaps live most strongly in the hearts and minds of all South Africans, whose freedoms and liberties were given such a new birth as a result of his personal suffering and leadership – both while imprisoned and upon his own walk towards freedom
