Power – Photo competition

Home > Lifestyle > Competitions

The Grey Nomads photo competition will be conducted on the forum pages of the www.thegreynomads.com.au website.

Theme: The theme of the competition is: ‘Power’. It is a broad ranging theme that is open to interpretation but the judge will be looking for images in which power plays an important role. Perhaps a shot illustrating the power of the sun, the wind, the rain… or maybe a picture showing how people or animals use power or even an image expressing what powers your trip such as friendship, chocolate or maybe just the desire to follow the sun.  As usual, we expect the boundaries of the category to be challenged, so use your imaginations.

When you post your entry, please feel free to tell the story behind the picture and also to comment on each other’s entries. There are three great prizes to be won but fun, friendship – and maybe a bit of frivolity – are the real aims of the game. Please enjoy.

Entry dates: November 1  – November 30, 2015.  Entries accepted from November 1 until midnight AEST on November 30. The top 10 photos – as judged by leading Australian travel journalist Steve Jones – will be announced on December 7. These will be posted on our website and voting (via email – details below) will take place from December 7 to midnight AEST December 14.  The winner (the photograph with the most votes) and the two other placegetters will be announced on December 15.
