2019 Monthly Photography Competitions

This Year Keynsham Town Council will be running monthly photography competitions.

Participants will be asked to submit a photo that represents Keynsham and the month in which it has been taken.

The three best entries for each month will be selected by the Council and published online where the public will then vote for their favourite.

July Competition - Vote for your favourite

We've had some great entries for July's competition; here are our three finalists:

  • Albert Mill
    Albert Mill by Carol Jennings
  • A child resting under a tree near the café in Memorial Park, Keynsham
    A Shady Spot - Becky Grinter
  • A plant full of blooming red flowers
    Flower Power - Christopher Baker

The winner will be selected by public vote, conducted on the Town Council Facebook and Twitter pages, and will be used in the 'A year in Keynsham' display at Keynsham Railway Station next year.

To vote on Facebook, click on your favourite image and ‘like’ it - Vote on Facebook

To vote on Twitter, find the tweet with your favourite photo on the Town Council feed and ‘like’ it - Vote on Twitter

You have until 9am on Monday 5th August to cast your vote.

Get voting!


Taking part

Anybody can enter; there’s no need to have photographic experience or a fancy camera, but remember, judges will be looking for images that are representative of Keynsham and the Months in which they’re taken. Entries will have to look good in the poster casings at Keynsham Railway Station, so whilst landscape entries are very welcome, portrait images are more likely to be a natural fit for the ratio of the station casings (see terms for more information on size).

Once the voting for the previous months competition has finished and a winner has been announced, the following months competition will be launched. Closing dates for entries will be published on this page and on the Town Council's Facebook and Twitter.

How will winning entries be used?

Winning photographs will then be used as part of a ‘Keynsham through the Year display at Keynsham Railway Station in 2020.

Happy Snapping!
