Photo Competition

After a long, enforced break due to Covid-19, 'BAGS is bouncing back' with an exciting photo competition open to everyone - members and non-members alike.

Photo Competition

Every cloud has a silver lining, says our competition organiser Teresa McGill, and the beauty of this activity is that the only zooming being done will be by your smart phone or camera!

The competition category concepts, Heimat and Zeitgeist, are in German but they apply to every country. So go out and look around! What sums up or encapsulates those concepts for you?

Discover the hidden talents of your smart phone which will, crop, change colour, add text etc. etc.

Tell friends, neighbours, relatives. This is open to everyone. There are no monetary prizes but the experience of coming 1st, 2nd,3rd or highly commended will give you a glow of pride.

Just taking part will broaden your horizons.

Go on, have a go!

Please also help to promote this fun competition by printing out and putting up the above poster wherever you think budding photographic talent may be lurking!
