Competition is mounting to find the best picture taken by an amateur photographer of grassroots football in Suffolk this season.
Suffolk FA and sponsors DE Photo are organising the competition in association with Archant Ltd, publishers of the East Anglian Daily Times and Ipswich Star.
Entries can be of any scenario in football – on match-day, a team shot or even a staged picture – providing it is a photograph depicting the grassroots and not the professional game.
At the end of the season the judging panel, which will include representatives from Suffolk FA, DE Photo and Archant Ltd, will meet before announcing the winners.
The winner will receive a 600mm x 400mm canvas photograph of their winning entry.
The runner-up and third-placed entries will receive 450mm x 300mm canvas photographs of their winning entries.
All three winners will also receive a certificate.
Suffolk FA Marketing & Communications Officer Nick Garnham said: “We have received some good entries already this season, some of which are pictured here.”
“However, with plenty of opportunities for amateur photographers between now and the end of the season to take an eye-catching shot, we look forward to receiving even more entries.”
The competition is open to all amateur photographers. Only photographs taken between August 1st 2016 and May 31st 2017 will be eligible for entry.
Entries submitted as .jpg files should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, while entries submitted as prints should be sent to Nick Garnham, Suffolk FA, Bill Steward House, The Buntings, Stowmarket IP14 5GZ.
All entries should be accompanied by the entrant’s full name, age, home address and phone number plus details explaining what the photograph is about.
Please note entries may be used for marketing and promotion purposes by Suffolk FA, Archant Ltd and DE Photo and by entering you consent for images to be used for this purpose.
Photographs containing people under the age of 18 should be submitted with a media consent form which can be found on the Suffolk FA website along with the competition launch story.
Normal Archant Ltd competition rules apply and the editor’s decision is final.
