Wolverhampton Photographic Society Wolverhampton Young Photographer Enter the Competition You can now enter your photographs into Wolverhampton Young Photographer 2020 Here you will find all the information you need to enter the competition so maybe you’ll win one of the prizes or even become Wolverhampton Young Photographer 2020. Before entering a photograph into a competition category check your entry: is a JPEG image named using either the .jpg or .jpeg file extension has a file size of less than 2.5Mb In the unlikely event your image size is greater than the 2.5Mb limit you can reduce it by re-saving it using a slightly lower setting for the JPEG quality or use software to reduce its size. Of course, the highest quality is always best if possible. Competition Sections and Categories New for 2020, the Wolverhampton Young Photographer Competition is now divided into two sections: JUNIOR SECTION … for Students up to and including Year 11 This opens up the age range so that more of you are able to enter. This is because in previous years the judges have commented how difficult it can be to spot photographs taken by budding photographers aged below 15. There are three categories to aim for and you can enter all three if you take on the challenge. SENIOR SECTION … for Year 12 and upwards, maximum age 18 This new section has been created for sixth form and college students and provides an opportunity to raise the game and show the world your ideas and photographic skills at a more discerning level. Whether you are part of an Art or Photography course or simply enjoying photography as an interest or hobby, the judges will be looking for you to demonstrate the very best skills you have learned at whatever stage in your creative journey you have reached. There are also three categories to work to with two being the same as those in the Junior section. The third category offers an additional challenge we believe will make you reflect on what has happened this year and show in pictorial form what it has meant to you and/or the world around you. Competition Rules and Guidelines Before you enter make sure you read and understand the rules relating to your entries: you can read them here or download them using the links on the left side of this page. There’s quite a bit to read through and some of it seems a bit fussy and official, but the rules need to be there to ensure everyone has a fair chance and that your entries are judged equally against others. If you are not sure about something or do not understand what is being said you can ask an older family member or a teacher or lecturer. We know sure they will be happy to help out. One thing that is really important if you’re under 18 is to make sure you have permission to enter. We also need a contact email address to be able to inform you about how the competition is going, send you confirmation of your entries and let you know if your photograph is short-listed for final judging. It is now time to read through the different categories and decide which ones you would like to enter.

JUNIOR SECTION: Patterns Have you ever been fascinated by patterns and repeating shapes within the world around you? Have you taken a second look at those abstract forms and thought they might be a great subject for a photo? Now is your chance to capture them and create something others might find fascinating. Think about what patterns are and where you might find them. Click the arrow to enter this section
JUNIOR SECTION: Creative Let your imagination run wild with this one. It must be a photograph you have taken, or based on one or more of your photographs, but artwork or illustrations are not allowed. You can be as different or imaginative as you feel you want to be and we’re giving no examples to help you. Let your mind wander … be creative! Click the arrow to enter this section
JUNIOR SECTION: Landscape & Nature Time to get out and about with your camera. Landscape photos should capture the spirit of the outdoors be they urban or rural, whereas nature photography is where the subjects can be flowers, animals or birds. Choose either or combine the two, but beware of photographing your pets as those types of photo haven’t made the finals in past years. Click the arrow to enter this section
SENIOR SECTION: Creative As long as you keep within the rules there really are no limits to your imagination for this, plus it is a a great opportunity to maybe show off your image processing skills with software like Photoshop. Perhaps you have an idea for a creative photographic image, an unusual use of light or a different take on an everyday situation. Your ideas count. Click the arrow to enter this section
SENIOR SECTION: Patterns This is harder than you think simply because those in the Junior section have the same mission as you. The judges will be expecting to see a more mature approach to this and a greater level of thought given to your final composition. This year WYP has raised the game and it is time for you to meet the challenge. Click the arrow to enter this section
