OS Landscape Photo Competition


Here's  a picture I took earlier this morning when I headed out to capture the light on the snow covered fields on the edge of my village.
It's the sort of image which you could possibly enter into a competition which has been announced by the Ordnance Survey.

Here are the competition details from the Ordnance Survey blog

We have an exciting competition for our budding amateur photography enthusiasts, which could put your image firmly on the map!

Cameras at the ready, we are looking for your best colour photographs depicting and celebrating the Great British outdoors in all its glory. There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs, including:
  • the winning photographs featured and published as the OS wallpaper of the month
  • a digital photo album to showcase your favourites photos
  • a 12-month subscription to OS getamap
  • an OS Custom Made map including your winning photograph and featured as a stock image for others to use!
General rules of entry
Photographs should be submitted via email to: competition@ordnancesurveyleisure.co.uk
The photograph taken should be in landscape view only. (Note that your photo may be cropped if you win to fit a portrait-style custom-made map cover)
Only digital images can be accepted, these must be in jpg format and in colour.
No photographs of people or animals in close-ups, interiors or places outside of Great Britain.
Photographs can be of any time of the year, not just winter.
A panel of judges will decide the 5 winning photographs - the judge's decision is final.
The closing date for the competition is Thursday 28 February 2013. Entries submitted after this date will not be included.
