Welcome to the Napp/BARD/Mundipharma Photography competition page.

Following the success of last years’ staff photography competition, we will be launching it again this year. As part of our continued work to stimulate creativity and an interest in the arts we have added some new inspiring categories. We hope to release the inner artist in all of you!

The competition will be run in five categories:

 

General

(Any artistic or aesthetically pleasing photography)

 

Travel and culture

(In its widest form- communities, art, music, traditional customs, sport, local events, festivals or celebrations etc.)

 

Daily Life and Street Photography

(Photographing of daily life indoors or out)

 

Natural World

(Any wildlife or natural landscape and environment)

 

Architecture

(Photographing of buildings or structures)

 

There will be 10 winners, 2 for each of the 5 categories, limited to one winning photograph per entrant, regardless of number of categories entered. Applicants may submit photos taken with any type of photography equipment including a smart phone. Of the two winners for each category, one will be awarded to a smart phone photograph and the other to a photograph taken using any other type of camera equipment.

Each winning image will be printed on a canvas and exhibited on site. This exhibition of the winning prints will be rotated around the campus buildings for 12 months.  At the end of the exhibition each winner will be presented with his or her canvas to take home and keep.

If you wish to take part in the competition please submit your images, as jpg files, by e-mail, to MundiPharmaPhoto@littlevangogh.co.uk. The competition will be judged from these submissions. You may submit up to 5 photographs in total. One image should be submitted per e-mail with the entrants name and e-mail address along with the category, equipment used (‘smart phone’ or ‘other camera’) and a title for the photograph in the text of the email.

We would be grateful if individual images could be less than 5Mb. It would also help if you could name the image files with your own name and an image number (eg JSmith1.jpg). Please note the judges will not see the file names when judging.

We are not setting any rules on the resolution of the submissions. We will ask the winners for the highest resolution images they have before printing, so you may email a lower resolution for judging if you wish.  Please also beware that low resolution may limit the size that may be printed.  This is a competition for photography, not digital enhancement. You may optimise your image, or manipulate it as you wish, but the judgment will be made on the photography.

Please remember that the images will be displayed in our offices, so please make sure that the content is appropriate.

The competition will be judged by the art committee of Little Van Gogh. The entries will be judged for their artistic and technical merit, composition, content and originality.
