2016 Photograph competition

Details of our latest competition - runs 1/1/2016 - 1/12/2016


Now that we are well into the new year, it seems like a good time to announce a new competition.   Yes I know it's only a few weeks since the last one, but you can never have too much of a good thing,   This time, though, it's a competition with a difference, as it will run all year.

So this is a "Best LDWA London photo of 2016 competition".

Basically, we're looking for the best photo of 2016, and to keep things as simple as possible, there are only a few rules:


Best LDWA London photo of 2016 competition


  • The photo must have been taken on an LDWA London event (social walk, weekend away, challenge hike or social evening)
  • It must have been taken in 2016
  • It must have been taken by an LDWA London Primary or Associate member
  • Any one member can submit up to five photos - if you submit five early in the year and want to submit another later in the year, one of the earlier ones will have to be withdrawn to restrict the total to five
  • The subject matter can be anything you like - scenery, people, amusing or serious but please try to keep it (reasonably) inoffensive..
  • If you have a photo you'd like to submit, just email it to london@ldwa.org.uk and it will be posted on the LDWA London website
  • There is a new page on the LDWA London website for the 2016 photo competition - click here.   As soon as entries are received, they will be posted there for all to see
  • The winner will be chosen by a popular vote of LDWA London Primary and Associate members, using a special on-line electronic voting system (NB this hasn't been invented yet but we are working on it...) starting on 1 December 2016
  • There will be an unimaginably fantastic prize for the winner (NB this hasn't been invented yet either) and the runner up.  
  • Prizes will be awarded at the LDWA London Christmas Dinner in December 2016
  • Photos that are in the frame for a prize will be checked for authenticity - to check that the person submitting it actually took it, is an LDWA Primary or Associate member, was on the LDWA London event where it was taken, and against Google Images to check it hasn't been downloaded from an on-line source
  • More rules and regulations may be added at any time - hopefully this shouldn't be necessary but if it is, changes will be notified to members by email.


So - remember to take your camera on all your LDWA London outings, get clicking, and send in your best shots.   And by the way, Susanne has unwittingly already entered the photo competition - you can see her entry by clicking here.
