Lowepro Single Shot photo competition returns for a second year in 2014 with various prizes, including a Lowepro bag, up for grabs.
Open to all, amateur or pro, entrants may each submit just a single image on the theme of the Adventure. A panel of judges including renowned outdoor and action sports and mountain bike professional photographer Geoff Waugh will select a shortlist of six which will then be judged by public vote both on Facebook and at the Showroom/Workstation during the festival weekend (4-6 April).
The competition is open until 28 February 2014 and entries must be submitted via email
The prizes up for grabs are:
£50 and Lowepro bag for winner
£25 cash prizes for 2 runners up.
Front page editorial on both shortlist and winners on MyOutdoorsUK
6 month gallery on MyOutdoorsUK and links on site for 12 months (worth £1,600 in equivalent advertising space).
Each of the six short-listed finalists will have their images displayed ahead of ShAFF film screenings.
Loraine Morgan, Senior Marketing Manager for Lowepro and Joby said: "We are thrilled to be supporting SHAFF 2014 as both Lowepro and Joby are products perfect for outdoor photographers and filmmakers. We are looking forward to connecting with the crowd and seeing what they can come up with for their competition entries!"
Festival Director Matt Heason said: "It's a great to be able to host a competition where amateurs like last year's winner Simon Read get to compete on a level playing field against pro photographers. We also love the concept that it's judged on one great shot that sums up the spirit of adventure which is what ShAFF's all about. We are very grateful to Lowepro and Joby for their continuing support and to Dave Mycroft from MyOutdoors for his tireless work in organising our photo competitions and exhibition, as well as our Second Hand Kit Sale, which help make ShAFF into so much more than just a film festival."
