Set of three Tuesday 3 December 2019
By Sarah Townley
The lights are on - get out there!
The Christmas lights and market are in full swing in Winchester, with beautiful lights and a Christmassy feel; the same is true in many other towns and villages in Hampshire.
The challenge for WPS members is to get out and capture those scenes, and perhaps the details, that best show the Christmas Lights.
WPS members are invited to upload images to sites for Winchester Xmas Lights or Hampshire Xmas Lights - up to 3 images per member in each category.
Those images will be reviewed by the President and chosen images will be offered to the Hampshire Chronicle, publicising the Society and of course the photographer.
Images can be uploaded from Sunday 24th November 2019 until 23:59 on Monday 9th December 2019.
Images must be taken by the author who has and retains copyright, but is happy for the image to be used by the Hampshire Chronicle.
Any image that fits the theme Winchester Christmas Lights or Hampshire Christmas Lights may be submitted.
Images submitted may still be used in WPS internal competitions or submitted to the Annual Print Exhibition.
This challenge does not impose any restrictions on previously entered work or future entries.
The usual WPS PDI sizes apply. Images do not require a title, just the photographer’s name and location.
