With instant results, the digital camera has revolutionised photography. As a talent and art form, Rotary celebrates the photographic skills of young people with a sequence of competitions that allows them to demonstrate and display what they can produce

There are 3 age groups in the Rotary Young Photographer competition (7-10, 11-13 and 14-17, as on 31 Aug 17) and for 2017-18 entrants are required to produce a portfolio of 3 photographs based on the theme “A Different Perspective”.  Local heats will be organised by Rotary Clubs located throughout Devon and Cornwall, with the winners being entered into the District 1175 Young Photographer competition, and the best entries in that competition being forwarded to compete nationally.

Entrance is free and certificates will be awarded to everyone participating.  Prizes will be awarded to the winners at each level of the competition.  Full details of the Rotary Young Photographer competition and entry forms are included below, but please feel free to contact your local Rotary Club (click here for contact details), or Nick Warrick at the Rotary Club of Lostwithiel (see below) if you would like any more information.

One of our prize sponsors for the 2017-18 District 1175 Young Photographer competition is ACD Systems.  If you are new to photography, they have some really useful advice to help make your pictures look really great.  Please click here to visit their "Photography 101" tutorial webpage.

District 1175 Young Photographer Ross Hoddinott Workshop Prize

The winners of each age group in the District 1175 Young Photographer competition will be invited to attend a photographic workshop with Ross Hoddinott in and around his studios at Kilkhampton on Friday 16th March 2018 from 12:00 noon to dusk.  This date is fixed.  If the winners are unable to attend then the runners-up will be invited in their place.  Ross will provide one-to-one tuition to the young photographers, with additional support being provided by Peter and Caroline Bland of Silverlake Photography.  This will be a fantastic experience!

Please click on the respective names above to visit their websites for an idea of the level of tuition you will receive.

 
All the district competition entries will be exhibited at district conference in June 2018 and conference delegates will be invited to vote for their favourite photograph in each age group. Two ACDSee licences will be awarded to the delegates' favourite winner and runner-up.
