FCC Photo Competition 2019

You can enter as many photos as you want, but any 1 photo cannot be entered into more than 1 category.

Categories:

Commercial –  All business activities that you see going on along the Forth: e.g. shipping, oil rig maintenance, Grangemouth, fishing, tourism, etc.

View from your Boat – Photos from your boat of your travels anywhere you adventure this season.

Wildlife – Any shots of wildlife on or around the Forth.

Boats on Location – Pictures of your boat out and about; remember to let us know where you were when it was taken.

Each category will have 3 winners (2 senior winners and 1 junior winner).

That will create a bank of 12 photos. These will then become our 2020 calendar and will also feature on our website and Facebook page The overall winner will be selected from these 12 and that photo will hold pride of place on the front cover of the calendar. Each of the featured photographers will win a copy of the calendar. Everybody else will be able to purchase these calendars for £8.50.
