I've copied below details of a photo competition organised by The International Journal of Meteorology and TORRO. The competition is open not only to TORRO members but also to anyone attending the Autum conference. This is a great chance to show off your photographic skills, meet like minded people and have an educational day out plus a sociable evening if you can stay a bit later
TORRO in Association with The International Journal of Meteorology
Are proud to present the 2007 "Weather" photography exhibition and competition.
The exhibition of UK weather photographs will be held at the TORRO Autumn conference at Oxford Brookes University, Oxford, on Saturday 20th October 2007.
Entry is free and open to all TORRO members and attendees at the conference. The subject is of course, weather. As this is the first exhibition held under the joint TORRO/IJMet banner the photographs may be from any date. Entry criteria are that the photographs must have been taken in the British Isles, they may be black and white or colour and presented as a print in any format up to 8" by 10" (traditional prints or good quality computer prints are acceptable). Up to four different prints per entrant will be allowed. They must of course be the entrants own work and all prints will be judged under the single category of weather. Minor digital alterations to colours and contrast will be allowed, digital manipulation of subject matter will NOT be allowed.
We have some great prizes for the top three entrants
1st Prize: A £100 voucher for Jessops photographic stores.
2nd Prize: A copy of the book Storm Force featuring images from The IJMet and TORRO.
3rd Prize: The first copy off the press of the IJMet 2008 calendar.
Judging will be by participants of the conference and prizes awarded at the close.
Entrants are invited to e-mail Paul Domaille at firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance, giving the number of images entered and the size. A posting address for prints will be e-mailed by return. It is hoped that entrants will be able to forward their prints by post at least two weeks prior to the conference, this will enable the exhibition to be set up before the conference opens. We will be able to accept a small number of entries before 10 am on the day, however space cannot be guaranteed.
Please reserve your space early as display area will be limited.
TORRO and the International Journal of Meteorology reserve the right to use any entry for publicity purposes with due accreditation. Entries may not be removed from the display before 4.15pm on the 20th October. TORRO and the IJMet will not be responsible for returning prints to entrants. In the event of any dispute the IJMet Editor's decision will be final.
