Environmental Photographer of the Year

Dear Sir or Madam, Apologies if you are not the correct person to approach, but I am hoping you may be able to assist in spreading the word about The Environmental Photographer of the Year 2009 competition to your contacts. CIWEM (The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management) runs the Environmental Photographer of the Year, which is one of the fastest growing photographic competitions in the world. In 2008 we received over 1,400 entries from over 40 countries –we are hoping to increase this in the 2009 competition. This is a serious competition that seeks to celebrate photographers who use their ability to raise awareness of environmental and social issues. It is open to all professional and amateur international photographers of any ages. This year’s categories are Changing Climates; A World of Difference; Quality of Life; The Natural World; and the Young Environmental Photographer of the Year (Under 21). EPOTY encourages entries that are contemporary, creative, experimental, resonant, original and beautiful. The judging panel is made up of some of the most respected environmental photographers in the industry, including Gary Braasch, winner of the Ansel Adams Award for Conservation Photography, as well as senior environmentalists. Individual pieces of work will be judged on impact, creativity, composition, originality and technical abilities. Winners receive cash prizes, and all winning and highly commended entries are displayed in the international Environmental Photographer of the Year exhibitions. Copyright is retained by the photographer (see terms and conditions at www.ciwem.org/arts/photographer). I hope you may be able to forward this email onto your members and friends, encouraging them to enter via www.ciwem.org/arts/photographer. The competition is open until 5pm on 31st July 2009. If you have any questions or require more information, please do contact me.

Digital Comp

Hi to all,
On Monday next Navan Camera Club is running an experiment with a digital competition.
Each member is encouraged to enter one digital image with a resolution of 1000 pixels on the long side at 72dpi. As digital projectors do not give any better projection above 72dpi that is why this resolution was chosen.
Some members have already entered and we have about 10 entries so far but in order to give a chance to club members who may be unaware of the competition the closing date has been extended
to midnight on Thursday 2nd April.Entries should be sent to …
with your own name as the file name.
The standard print based club competition also takes place on the night of 6th April.
