    I might try again

    Already entered in 2007 and 2008 but I havent got a decent portrait for 2009 yet. What baffles me is that most of the winners hold degrees and MA in photography I wonder if non photography educated people will ever have a chance to go throught the panel?

    Rachel, your link to your website doesn't work, I think.

    Going back to the contest the fee is a bit high in the event you want to submit more than one piece.

    Blimey ..... the entry fee is £18 PER PHOTOGRAPH !! I guess this is why the overall winner takes 12 grand though.

    The print size seems odd to me. It says, "no smaller than 420x297mm". Tell me if I'm wrong, but I see that would be 11.69x16.5354". Is that right? That's an unusual size, do you think?

    I'm considering it. I've got plenty of work to choose from, but it's always a question of whether the entry fee and requirements would be worth it.

    I should imagine that just the exposure if worth the £18 investment for those participating.

    Following on Rachele's comment, at last year's exhibition I realized how restrictive my conception of portraiture was. Very often, it is not so much about the person being portraited, but more about a statement or a wider view over social interactions and the environment. I thought that it was interesting.
