After a highly successful first month, our re-launched photography competition continues with a new theme and even more great prizes.
After the success of our previous photography competition, which ended in May we knew we had to do it again. The idea is the same as before. Each month we’ll provide a theme for your photographs and a closing date, and your task is to go out and take photographs that match that theme, and send them to us before the deadline. Our team of highly trained experts will then study the entries and pick the winners. The best entries will be shown on the site at the end of the month.
As before there will be three prize winners each month, and thanks to our new sponsors we’ve got some fantastic prizes up for grabs.
We’ve also got some great prizes this month from Samsung. The two runners-up will each receive a superb NV9 compact camera. The NV9 is a great new 10.2-megapixel pocket compact that we will be reviewing soon. It features a 5x zoom internal lens with optical image stabilisation, a 2.7-inch 230k LCD monitor and a built-in MP3 and media player. It has a wide range of easy-to-use automatic features to ensure top-quality photos, including face detection, blink detection and smile detection, automatic red-eye fix and contrast balance, and has a Beauty Shot mode that automatically re-touches portrait shots to improve skin tone. It also features unique analogue dials on the top plate indicating camera status. The NV9 normally retails at around £180.
Our first prize winner this month will receive the fantastic Samsung GX-20 digital SLR complete with 18-55mm lens. The multi-award-winning GX-20 is a top quality semi-professional camera featuring a Samsung-developed 14.6-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, high speed 11-point autofocus system and a robust weatherproof magnesium alloy body with 72 environmental seals.
