Pro-loco Photography Competition 2021
This year sees the 12th Matlock Bath Parish Council Pro Loco Photography Competition.
Entrants are invited to submit 4 photographs for the competition which can be uploaded directly onto the Parish Council website using the form via the bottom of this page. Please do not include on your photographs any markings which refer to your name (or any company) as all entries have to be anonymous for voting purposes.
The main rule of the competition is that the photographs must be of a view or artefact of Matlock Bath.
The competition is now open and will close on Sunday 3rd October 2021. Entrants will be notified after this date as to whether they have been shortlisted or not.
It is hoped that voting will be able to take place in person in Late October/early November. Details of this will be posted on our website and communicated to you once the competition has closed. Should there still be Government restrictions in place, we will revert voting to online voting and again details will be sent to you.
Prizes this year will be awarded as follows:
Adults (Age 17 and over) – 1st Prize – £80, 2nd Prize – £65, 3rd Prize – £50
Junior Photographers (Aged 4-7 and 8-11)- prizes will be awarded in the form of gift vouchers
Young Photographer (Age 12-16) – prizes will be awarded in the form of gift vouchers.
Best Villager – £50 – this prize will be awarded to a resident of Matlock Bath
Matlock Bath Parish Council Prize – £30 – the winner will be chosen by the Parish Council.
Heritage of Matlock Bath – £30
In addition we will also be awarding prizes in the “Best Picture of ….” categories. Details of these categories will be published in due course but will no doubt be based on previous years.
We would remind entrants that they should adhere to the Government’s advice when taking photographs ensuring you socially distance as required.
