PhotoMadd is running a photographic competition!

The theme of the competition…. Lines.  Straight Lines, blue lines, thick lines, wavy lines, yellow lines, circular lines, parallel lines, it doesn’t matter!  Go out, find lines and shoot them!  The aim of the competition is to get you out with your camera and make you look out and notice something we see every day, then try to shoot it in an interesting and different way.  Creativity is what myself and the other judges be looking for in the winning image.

Images can be of anything and everything as long as it follows the theme set here.  Images can be straight out of the camera or post processed to death, your choice!  The only thing that matters is the vision you had of the final image when you pressed the shutter button.

This is an open competition with no restrictions other than the image must have been taken on a qualifying Fujifilm X-Series camera as defined by the official Fujifilm X-Series page.  There are no restrictions on the lens you may use on interchangeable lens cameras.

The winner will receive a new copy of the just released book by the well known Fujifilm X-Series photographer Zack Arais where he goes into more detail about the questions he has received from photographers on his highly regarded Ask Me Anything Tumblr blog.  It’s a great read with a very down-to-earth style of solid, no-nonsense advice to aspiring (and established) photographers based on his years of experience in the industry.


Fujifilm UK have also kindly agreed to add a very nice official Fujifilm X-Pro1 hardback notebook to allow you to keep records of your shots in – or whatever else you want to write in it!
