Hunt Calendar Photo Competition

We’ve had some lovely photos already, but since one of our judging panel is on holiday this coming week, we may as well extend the deadline just a little. If you haven’t rifled through last season’s picture yet, now’s the time!

Please email your photographs by August 20th to:
john@kimblewickhunt.co.uk

Hunt Calendar Photo Competition

With our hounds being out of action for much of the season, it’s going to be a tricky year to pull together the calendar, so even more than usual we welcome your contributions.

We’re looking for great hunting or Hunt-related photographs to use in the 2018 Hunt Calendar, either candid ‘people’ shots or big beautiful pictures for the individual months. The Supporters’ Club is once again donating a £50 prize for the judges’ favourite amateur photograph, whether used in the Calendar or not. All photographs used in the calendar or on this website will be credited to the photographers.

The rules are simple:
• All photos must be received by August 11th
• Photographs must be of or related to the Kimblewick Hunt and have been taken in the twelve months prior to the closing date
• Digital photos only, please do not post us prints
• Photographs can only be used in the Hunt Calendar if they are of sufficient technical as well as artistic quality (but don’t be put off by that - we’ve had mobile phone pictures in the calendar every year this competition has been running)
• By submitting a photograph you consent to its use free of charge on this website and in the Calendar, sales of which benefit the Hunt
• The judges’ decision regarding prizes and inclusion in the Calendar is final

Please email your photographs by August 11th to:
john@kimblewickhunt.co.uk
