Thankyou for all your photos - we have had a record number of entries this year!  The competition is now closed.  The Prizegiving was on Friday 29th April 2022 at the Emsworth Community Centre at 4.00pm,
with all photos then on display as part of the Emsworth Arts Trail until Monday 2nd May.

The Broomfield "Schools Photographic Competition" - sponsored by the SMPPA

How to Enter:


We hope you have a lot of fun taking pictures to enter.  The pictures must be your own work and must not have been entered in previous competitions.  You can enter Two on the theme “Local Nature" and you can also enter Two of “Any Subject”.  

Entries to the Photographic Competition must be submitted by a parent or guardian on behalf of the child photographer. The submission of an entry will imply the parent's or guardian's agreement to the possible publishing of a group photograph including their child, along with their school details.


Entries should be emailed to:
Make sure to include your Name, School, and what Year you are in.  You should give your pictures Titles if you can.


You can use any Camera or Phone, Tablet, iPod etc. but whatever you use make sure the lens is clean before you start.  Cropping the photos is allowed if you do it yourself.  The judges are looking for interesting and well composed pictures that portray a subject well and in interesting light.  The main subject should be in focus and not cut off in important parts.  Horizons should be level. The decider is how well it catches and holds the judges' attention.


The competition will be launched again in February/early March with presentations to the six participating schools.  
The closing date for entries was Sunday 10th April 2022.  

The prizegiving was held on Friday 29th April at 4.00pm (the first Bank Holiday weekend after Easter) at the Emsworth Community Centre as part of the Emsworth Art Trail.

All photos remained on display until Monday 2nd May, and then afterwards at the Emsworth Co-op.


There is a prize of £30 for the winning photographer in each of the two subjects, and a prize of £25

for their school.

There are prizes of £15 for the winner from each other school year.

The Judges award Certificates of Merit to other good entries.

All entrants will receive a mounted print of their pictures.

Presentation of Prizes:

Prize and Certificate winners and their schools will be notified by e-mail.  The prizes and certificates will be presented at the prizegiving ceremony at the Emsworth Community Centre on the Friday of the first May Bank Holiday weekend at 4.00pm, when prints of all the entries will be on show.  
All entrants and their parents are invited to come to this event.
Photographs stay on display over the Emsworth Art Trail weekend and the 8 prize winners are on show at the Emsworth Co-op after this.
