“Reflections & Shadows”
Bridge of Allan & Dunblane Rotary Club is again hosting a Young Photographer Competition. There will be prizes for the 3 best entries in each category.
We have never lived in an age where we have had such ability to capture the world around us through a lens. Bridge of Allan & Dunblane Rotary Club would like to encourage young people to develop their creative potential using photography to express and reflect what they see and feel. Following on from last year’s very successful competition, we would encourage all young people with an interest in photography, or who just like taking snaps, to send us their best pictures.
The theme for the Competition is “Reflections & Shadows”.
Please use your imagination. We would like entries to express your own experiences as we consider and observe our man made and natural surroundings.
