Kids Capture the Colour Competition

competiton

I’m very excited to let you all know that I have been picked to judge an awesome new competition from Travel Supermarket. This competition is called ‘Kids Capture the Colour’ and it is basically a challenge for kids to get taking photos and capturing the world around them! As a photographer I am always encouraging my kids to take photos; Lero has his own DSLR and Boo has a fab little point & shoot and can often be found in the garden taking photos of the flowers, she also loves to chase her brother around with the camera but gets so frustrated because he doesn’t stay still 😉

To get the kids started, Travel Supermarket will be sending out digital cameras to parent bloggers across the UK to help their children capture the colours of red, blue, green, yellow and white while on their summer holidays. Entrants must be 15 and under.

There will be a winner for each of the five colour categories, these colour categories will be judged by some marvellous Mum/photography bloggers! Yes I’m one of them and I will be judging BLUE!!! So come on kids get shooting BLUE!!!  Venture Photography will then choose an overall winner based on the best all-round entry.

The other lovely judges are –

Green – Emily  http://www.amummytoo.co.uk/

Yellow – Lucy http://capturebylucy.com/

White – The Boy And Me  http://www.theboyandme.co.uk/

Red – Annie http://mammasaurus.co.uk/

To get involved you must  email  kidscapturethecolour@travelsupermarket.com with the subject title ‘Kids Capture the Colour’. They will then send your child a digital camera to snap their photos, (but hurry as they will only be sending out cameras to the first 100 bloggers that get in touch). Once you have selected your five best photos, you then need to showcase them in a blog post explaining the stories behind them.

This competition will run from 14th August 2013, you must apply to take part by the 25th September and all entries must be in by 9th October.

    We are just waiting for our camera to arrive. Jacks favourite colour is blue so I think he will be ‘team blue!’ 🙂
