Photography Competition 2023



Photography Competition 2023


Barling Magna Parish Council is pleased to announce its 2023 photography competition. The aim is to celebrate the beauty of our parish and to find high-quality images which can be shared by the Council on our website and social media pages.


The rules of the competition are:

  1. Photographs must reflect the theme ‘Images of Barling Magna Parish’ (including Barling, Little Wakering, Potton Island and Stonebridge), but can be of any style including landscapes, wildlife, creative images, street photography and architectural, amongst others. Images may be in colour, monochrome or tints.
  2. All photographs must be taken within the boundaries of the Parish, within 2023.
  3. Photographs must not include the faces of any person and must be of a suitable nature to be shared in public and with all ages.
  4. The competition is open to amateur photographers of all abilities and we welcome entries by local school students. There are 2 categories for entries:
    1. General competition, for entrants aged over 16 (£100 in Amazon vouchers as prize)
    2. Junior competition, for entrants aged 16 or under (£50 in Amazon vouchers as prize). Entrants to the Junior competition must also state their age and school on the entry form.
  5. Entry is free. You may submit as many entries as you wish. Each entry must be accompanied by an entry form.
  6. Entries must be in digital JPG format, with a maximum individual size of 3Mb. We ask that, where possible, images should have a resolution of not less than 300dpi.  They should be emailed to [email protected], with “Photo Competition” in the subject line and attaching a completed entry form detailing all your entries. Each image should be given a unique file name and detailed on the form. Closing date for receipt of entries is noon on Friday 15 December 2023.



All images will be judged by the Parish Council. In the event of any dispute, the decision of the Parish Council will be final.

Image rights

While all photographers who submit entries will retain full rights to any image submitted, by entering the competition they will also be granting permission for the image to be used in the Barling Magna Parish Council website, social media pages, and in any other published materials by the Council, and to be edited or cropped as necessary. Use of images will acknowledge the photographer.
