Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 in Competitions

Challenging Disability

The Lake District Calvert Trust, a charity that provides residential outdoor activity holidays for people with disabilities, is delighted to announce the launch of the #candocalvert Photography Competition 2015. Their aim is to find the image that best captures their belief 'It’s what you can do that counts'.

Launching on 1st April 2015 and running for a period of 4 months, each month the charity will be looking to receive entries that demonstrate “challenging disability through outdoor adventure” and a specific theme, which changes every month through the course of the competition. 

The overall best image will be chosen by the judging panel and will win a multi-activity adventure break for up to 4 people (one member of the group must have a disability) at their dedicated residential centre above the shores of Bassenthwaite Lake and an Olympus TG-850 camera – very relevant based on the outdoors nature of the brief.

Mark Thackara, Product Manager for Olympus UK commented "Producing an image that encapsulates dynamic activity of groups or individuals in an outdoor setting is a challenge for both amateur and professional photographers alike. Adding in the further dimension of showing how people with disabilities can participate meaningfully in this environment makes it an even tougher assignment. This is why Olympus are delighted to be supporting the Lake District Calvert Trust in their quest to find the inspirational image that best shows how people with disabilities can have their lives enriched through personal achievement".

Entries to the competition can be submitted via social media using the tag #candocalvert, or by emailing the Lake District Calvert Trust direct. The theme for April is “Achievement” and photographs can be of a group or an individual, be of any outdoor activity and be taken in any location. For more details on the competition, how to enter, and the prizes (including all terms and conditions), take a look at the Calvert Trust website.
