The details of the competition were as below:
To take part, all you need to do is take a photo that is one of the following:
The Hill in question is, of course, Troopers Hill.
- taken from the Hill;
- taken of the Hill or
- taken of something or someone on the Hill.
If you are in need of inspiration then just go for a walk on the hill - it is a great place to take photos, the colours and shadows are always changing. Or you can look at our Hill Photos Page or visit the flickr Troopers Hill Group Pool which has lots of great photos - but we are sure that you can do better!
You can send your photographs either as an electronic image to , or as print or slide by post or in person to Susan at 3 Corkers Hill, BS5 8DT. All entries need to be received by 1st December 2007.
There are three categories: under 12 years old, 12—16 years old and over 16. Please make sure you make it clear what age the photographer was at the time of taking the image.
Each person can enter up to three photographs. The photos do not have to be recent, old photographs in black & white or colour are very welcome.
There will be a first place prize in each group and we will also announce runners up and any commended entries. Prizes will consist of a trophy - kindly donated by Bristol Video Solutions - and a voucher.
The judging panel will be Peter Wilkinson, head of Bristol Parks, Stuart Thorn, who organises the Troopers Hill Group on flickr, and Tim Hill, of Tim Hill Photographic Services.
The winners will be announced at our AGM on 11th December when we hope to show as many entries as we can. So it will be well worth coming along. More detailed rules are shown below.
An article about the competition appeared in the Evening Post on 10th October.
We will endeavour to return slides (so make sure we have your details), but not prints.
All photos will be scanned and then judged in a digital format.
If you enter an image, you will retain the copyright to that image, but you will automatically give us the rights to use that image as we see fit in the future in our, or allied groups, publicity.
Judging will be by the panel of three judges mentioned above, the judges will not be told who submitted the photos.
Each person can enter a maximum of three images - if you submit more than three please tell us which ones should be entered otherwise we will randomly select three to go forward to the judging.
A statement of ownership of the images you submit will be required.
If the age of the photographer is not stated we will assume you are over 16.
No person deemed as a “professional” photographer shall be eligible to enter.
Judges and Friends of Troopers Hill's decisions are final.
