Photography Competition

Lockdown Through a Lens

We may all be stuck indoors due to the lockdown, but there’s no reason why we can’t still get creative with our cameras and smarthphones. There are plenty of flowers and lots of wildlife in our gardens, so why not take advantage of the sunny weather and look for beauty in places where we don’t normally look. Or perhaps you could look indoors for interesting shapes and textures or perhaps capture moments that represent how the lockdown has affected you.

The Billingshurst & District Friends of Rotary Club are running a ‘Lockdown’ photography competition that will run until the end of May. The winners and two runners up in each photo category will receive a canvas print of their photo. The winning video will be displayed on our website.
