As part of its centenary commemorations, The Gallipoli Association is organising a photographic competition. The subject for the Competition is, simply, 'Images of Gallipoli'.

The theme is open to individual interpretation but entries must respect the events that took place on the peninsula in 1915 and have the battlefields at their heart. The competition is not restricted to Association members – anyone may enter, no matter where you live. Entries must have been taken on the peninsula by the entrant.

The closing date for receipt of entries is 31st December 2014.

The winning entry will be chosen by a panel of distinguished judges and will be announced in Spring 2015. It is hoped to display as many entries as possible at the Gallipoli Association's subsequent Annual Conference.

Prizes: 1st - £250, 2nd - £100, 3rd - £50. It is also intended that the winning entry will be used on the front cover of the Spring 2015 edition of The Gallipolian replacing, for this one edition, the image of the River Clyde which has been used since edition 2 of the journal, which was published in 1970.

Entries must be presented in digital format only.

All entries to be sent to: photocomp@gallipoli100.co.uk

See http://www.gallipoli-association.org/content/gallipoli-100 for further details.

To protect our history, we must secure it's future.

Mal and Committee Members and the 100, this is a great idea. It is a great opportunity to, hopefully, create more interest in  our Association.

Very good idea though for us that cannot get to Gallipoli so readily a trite difficult. Can an entry be a composite photo similar to Frank Hurley's work or does it have to be a single photo?

Hi Rob, its only FOUR images per entrant.
Hi Pete, the rules that that "images may be digitally enhanced and manipulated as the entrant sees fit" I am not familiar with Frank Hurley, but hopefully this will guide you.

The full rules, which will explain more, are below:

http://www.gallipoli-association.org/media/43671/images%20of%20gallipoli%20competition%202014%20rules.pdf

Images of Gallipoli - Photographic Competition Rules
1. The subject for the Association’s Centenary Photographic Competition is 'Images of Gallipoli'. The theme is open to individual
interpretation but entries must have the interests of the peninsula and the battlefields at their heart.
2. Entries must have been taken on the peninsula by the entrant.
3. Entrants can each submit up to four photographs as digitised images. Prints or slides cannot be accepted. Only files of type: jpg, tif or
psd will be accepted. Please include your last name in the image filename.
4. Images may be digitally enhanced and manipulated as the entrant sees fit. The organisers reserve the right to exclude any image they
consider inappropriate to the theme.
5. The competition is open to Association members and non-members alike, world-wide. The judges or Association officers may not enter.
6. Entrants must not be professional photographers and, for the purposes of this competition, a professional photographer will be
considered to be someone who makes more than 25% of their annual income from the sale of their photographs.
7. Each entry should be accompanied by a name, address, contact telephone number (both daytime and evening), email address and where
and when the photograph was taken.
8. Entries should be sent to: photocomp@gallipoli100.co.uk
9. The competition closes at midnight on 31st December 2014 (GMT). The winners will be announced in the Spring of 2015.
10. No entries can be returned and the organisers accept no responsibility for entries not received.
11. All entries will be judged by a panel of judges. The judges will select the winning photograph, one which, in their opinion, best illustrates
the theme of the competition. They will consider a range of factors including composition, technical ability, originality, interpretation of
the brief and the overall appeal of the photographs.
12. Prizes: 1st - £250, 2nd - £100, 3rd - £50. It is also intended that the winning entry will be used on the front cover of the Spring 2015 edition
of The Gallipolian replacing, for this one edition, the image of the River Clyde which has been used since edition 2 of the journal, which
was published in 1970.
13. The judges' decisions will be final and no correspondence can be entered into.
14. All entries must be the original work of the entrant and must not infringe the rights of any other party. The entrants must be the sole
owner of copyright in all photographs entered and must have obtained permission of any people featured in the entries or their parents /
guardians if children under 16 are featured. Further, entrants must not have breached any laws when taking their photographs.
15. Prior to submission, entrants must not have offered any of their entries for sale, been paid for any publication of any of their entries or
won or been a runner up in any other photographic competition with any of their entries.
16. Entrants will retain copyright in the photographs that they submit to the Association. By entering the competition all entrants grant to
the Association the right to publish their photographs on the Association's website and online social networks throughout the centenary
year and to exhibit them at supporting events such as subsequent Annual Conferences. No fees will be payable to entrants for any of
these uses. We will make every effort to credit photographers where their work is displayed.
17. By entering, entrants will be deemed to have agreed to be bound by these rules and the Association reserves the right to exclude any
entry from the competition at any time and in its absolute discretion if the Association has reason to believe that an entrant has breached
these rules.
18. The Association reserves the right to cancel this competition or alter any of the rules at any stage, if deemed necessary in its opinion, and
if circumstances arise outside of its control.
19. If the winner is unable to be contacted after reasonable attempts have been made, the Association reserves the right to either offer the
prize to a runner up or to re-offer the prize in any future competition.
20. These rules are governed by the laws of England and Wales. This competition is administered by The Gallipoli Association.

G'day Steve,

Thanks for the reply. Still not clear though as to whether this pertains to several images used in one composite photograph or to each of the four separate images submitted. Nothing like an ambiguous rule. Probably as plain as day for most people but not to this little black duck.

Cheers all,

Peter

P.S. Frank Hurley was an Australian WW1 photographer who used composite photographs with added in clouds etc to show what the Western Front was like. Bean did not like his work and called it fake.

Hi Peter,
Although I read the rules as being a single photo, which can be enhanced or left au natural , there is nothing wrong with being creative!
regards, Stephen

To all avid photographers.  I think the rules are quite clear (as I wrote them!).  The image can be of whatever you like, but must have been taken on the peninsular and be in accord with the overall intent of the competition.  Photos do not have to be taken this year - so if you have visited in previous years and have a photo or two to send in - please do so.
 
If you wish to merge several photos into one composite image, that's fine.  However, do respect copyright - see rule 14.
 
Keep the photos coming in - photocomp@gallipoli100.co.uk 
 
Please also use the above email address for any competition queries you may have - you may get a reply quicker than posting on the forum.
 
As ever, the decision of the judges is final!

For those fortunate enough to be planning a trip to the peninsular, either on ANZAC day, on one of the Association's tours or just a private trip, don't forget your camera. 
 
Plenty of scope for a good image or two over there and we want to see them.  You might even win!!
 
Send entries to:  photocomp@gallipoli100.co.uk 
 
Good luck.
 
Keith Edmonds
