1st Birthday Anniversary Photo Competition

Recommended Posts

We are announcing the 1st Birthday Anniversary Photo Prize Challenge. This is open to all WSF members and is very simple to enter. All you need to do is send us a photo that has something to do with August Bank Holiday and BBQ/Smoking/Preserving. It can be of anything that fits the criteria. For instance it could be an inspiring plate of food that you have produced, a holiday event or view you have attended over the Bank Holiday period or something unexpected that you have caught on camera. The photos can be serious, light hearted or just plain strange. Remember though that they must be suitable for publication. The competition is open from today until the 1st September 2018 and the winner will be announced on the 7th September 2018.

The prize for the best photo submitted will be:

  • A t-shirt of your choice from the store in your selected size and colour
  • 6 months supply of bacon curing salts (based on curing 1 Kg of bacon per week for 26 weeks) 
  • 2 packs of smoked nuts
  • Prizes may vary from those listed above.

Photos should be sent as a private message to @Photo Challenge and should not be posted directly in this thread. Photos posted directly here will be excluded from consideration in the competition.
However, if you have a suitably themed photo that you would like to share and do not want to enter into the competition then please post it here for us all to enjoy.

The competition has a few simple rules…

  • The photo/s must have been taken by you between the 25th August and midnight on 1st September  2018
  • Members can submit as many photos as they wish during the competition period
  • They must be connected with August Bank Holiday AND also BBQ, smoking or preserving
  • Each photo must be accompanied by a few words explaining what it is and when/where it was taken
  • They must not infringe any copyright
  • They must not be digitally enhanced or altered in any way
  • The winner will be selected by WFS staff and their decision will be final.

All submitted photos will be posted here for everyone to view after the competition closing date.

So get those cameras out and get snapping. Here is one to get the ball rolling...

Shame such a lot of rain is coming across the UK. Should make for interesting bbq linked to rain. Is sous Vide allowed as a topic?

Don't forget to think outside the box. It is not always the technically best photo that wins as the content will play a large part in our decision too. If you are taking a photo of a plate of food then ensure that the food tells a story that is relevant. Quirky is good too - for instance, your dog tucking into a half eaten joint of beef that would have been your bank holiday dinner may gain enough sympathy from the judges to award extra points.
