Young Photographer 2020 - Information for Clubs

Information for Clubs


If as the saying goes “A picture paints a thousand words” then surely this is a skill that Rotarians should be encouraging young people to develop.  The Young Photographer competition provides an excellent opportunity to clubs to do this.  Although the normal catchment for most Youth Service competitions will be schools this competition is also likely to appeal to Community and Youth groups and organisations such as Guides, Scouts, Boys Brigade etc. 

I would appeal to all 1010 Rotarians to spread the word about the Young Photographer competition as widely as possible and to encourage young people to participate in it. 

Each year the entry requirements are to produce a portfolio of three (3) photographs in colour or black and white on photographic paper. Each print, including any mount, to be no larger than A4. The theme for 2019-20 will appear here as soon as it is available.
