Lloyds TSB weather photographer of the year competition

British-based photographers and travelers have the chance to win £10,000 with Lloyds TSB in the british weather photographer of the year photo competition.

Lloyds TSB is a British bank and insurer, and they've got a long history of supporting the UK arts community. This time, they're reaching out to amateur photographers across the country.


Here's my own entry into the competition:

Clouds over London

Admittedly, there are some pretty poor shots being submitted, but I found a whole lot of amazing photos in the galleries as well. So even if you're not interested in taking part, if you're interested in nature photos of any sort, go ahead and browse for a while.

In addition, there's also a weekly prize of £100 for the best shot submitted that week.

In the final week before the grand winner is declared, the 12 runner ups will be exhibited in public. Unfortunately, the site doesn't yet say where this exhibit will take place, but I'm sure any entrant would be emailed about it as the competition comes to an end.

This competition runs from 13 April to 30 September 2010, and is open to all residents of the United Kingdom aged 18 and over. It's also an amateur competition, so any professionals are barred from taking part. Oh, and you're allowed to submit more than one photo too, so go ahead and send in your top shots.

Judges are photographers Mark Humpage and Roger Coulam, meteorologist Simon Keeling, and editor-in-chief of Popular Photography Andrew James.

Selection criteria for the winners are both photographic excellence and originality, so I hope the finalists will all be wonderfully inventive and unusual.

This is a sponsored post. However, like every other post on eyeflare.com, I fully stand behind the article, and think this is a great chance for someone to bag a great prize. Hopefully, that'll be me, though with the fantastic photographers bound to take part. I'd say that's unlikely.

take a look at the winner for this week (a boat and some water) and please tell me where the merit is in the photo...there is something seriously wrong with the voting system!

Hi Simon

Well, it's voted by the general public for the weekly winners I believe... In other words, a popularity contest. The people with the qualifications and experience, the judges mentioned above, will only decide on the finalists I think.

I'd fully expect a few really horrible photos to climb high because their friends are voting the shot up!

Hi, do you have any idea of how many votes the photo got?

Thanks
