Now - the rules and regulations..

 

Best LDWA London photo of 2016 competition

Rules

  • 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you submit five early in the year and want to submit another later in the year, one of the earlier ones will have to be withdrawn to restrict the total to five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

  • As soon as entries are received, they will be posted on this web-page 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
    STOP PRESS: DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 31 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
    STOP PRESS: DINNER IS ON 11 JANUARY 2017

  • 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 London 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.
