London Fashion Week competition: win a place in the photographers’ pit

How would you like to try your hand in the photographers’ pit at London Fashion Week? Regular readers will remember that last season Canon kindly offered a place to one lucky reader to shoot a show alongside the pros.

I’m pleased to announce that Canon and I are going to run the competition again. If you’d like to be in with a chance of winning the spot in the pit, please email me up to three photos by 6pm Wednesday 16th February 2011 – that’s next week so get in quick! The theme is beauty.

Please note, that this competition is separate to the weekly photo competition and so you can only submit images by email, not via Flickr. Please include your full name and a contact telephone number with each entry. The full terms and conditions are below.

While we are talking competitions, a few of you have asked about the weekly competition. Unfortunately, increased work commitments mean that I am unable to run this on a weekly basis – with several hundred entries a week it just takes too long for me to go through them. I really miss it and would like to start it up again at some point but until I can devote a significant amount of time to it, I just don’t think it’s fair on those who take the time to enter. I’ll keep my eye out for exciting opportunities such as this Fashion Week competition though so I’m not disappearing completely.

Good luck to everyone entering the Fashion Week competition – remember that you don’t need to have experience of fashion photography to win, you just need a good eye for a picture…
