BHF launches photography competition

 24th Nov 2011

 

A photography competition has been launched by the British Heart Foundation (BHF), urging people to capture shots of what their heart means to them.
 
Indeed, the brief really is that simple: show 'what the heart means to you' through a photography. However, there is one little extra rule that means there must be something red incorporated somewhere in the image. For beginners wishing to enter this competition get some tips on technique from Photography DVD.
 
This is the third annual Red for Heart Digital Photography competition held by the charity, which aims to increase awareness of heart health.
 
It is open to three age categories: adults aged 16 and above, students aged 16 or above in full or part-time courses and juniors aged 15 and under.
 
Everyone who wishes to take part has until 6 January 2012 to do so and the winners will be announced at the end of that month in advance of National Heart Month in February when the photographs will be showcased.
 
Stephen Layden, fund-raising and volunteer manager for BHF in Tyne and Wear, commented on the event: “I’m excited about Sunderland getting involved with the competition. It’s a great opportunity for photographers to potentially have their work showcased.”
 
More information on the photography competition is available at www.bhf.org.uk/redphotos.
