We have a number of #photocontests for you to enter! #photography #London

Theme ‘Window with a London View’: 

When a recent flood damaged some of the WPF Therapy Rooms based in London Bridge, we’ve teamed up with the charity to help them adorn their recently refurbished walls with some great art. They are looking for images of London taken through a window or a door – pictures that include the frame of the window in some way, it has to visible in your picture that you are looking out through a window or doorway.

 

Whether it’s the view from the top of The Shard in London, or looking out from your own home, London has some of the world’s best and most interesting window views. The image can be taken from any London building or attraction – it could be a landscape, cityscape or any view from any London window that inspires you.

·         The competition is free to enter.

·         Photographers selected for exhibition will receive £50 per image

·         The images will be exhibited for 3-5 years from January 2018

·         You will also have the opportunity to sell prints of your image

Enter here.

And we’ve teamed up with Mapp of London to run their first photography competition!  They are looking for your images of towns or cities and the relationship they have with water – from London and the river Thames to a small town pictured in the rain or snow – any images of the urban landscape featuring some element of water.  Their favourite image will be exhibited in London from early 2018 for three months and the photographer will win a monogrammed camera strap from their current collection. The public will also have an opportunity to vote for their favourite image and this will also be exhibited in London for three months from early 2018.  The winners will receive recognition on Mapp of London and the London Photo Festival & Gallery’s social media channels via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and blogs. Good Luck!

We speak to Amy Bateman @Croftfoot our fine art/abstract #photography #competition winner #London #cumbria

Convergence

This photograph was taken on a family outing to a local tarn in Cumbria. It was winter and had been a hard frost. The tarn had frozen in the still shallows, yet, was still unfrozen in the deeper parts. The convergence between ice and water was making a stunning rippled effect and the picture has so much texture from the water, ice and movement that I took a whole series of photographs. These have become some of my favourite shots.

Photography has become a serious hobby since giving up work to look after our children and I have been entering a few competitions on the internet when I stumbled across the London Photo Festival. As a very busy mum of three I’d forgotten I’d even entered. Receiving the email to say I’d won was amazing. I’m delighted that the judge was taken with the shot as much as myself and my twitter followers! I am really looking forward to seeing my photograph exhibited at The Bridge Lounge, a pinnacle of my photographic career to date.

Taken in Helen, Georgia in the United States in 2014, with a Nikon D90. This was taken during my first exploration of the mountains on the East coast of the United States, which truly developed my love for mountains and waterfalls alike, and drove me to travel and explore much of the Blue Ridge Mountains over the past few years.
