Bee photo competition
With the continuing success of the Vita Gallery, a free photo gallery for beekeepers, honeybee health company Vita (Europe) Ltd is launching a photography competition. Anyone can submit up to three photos relating to bees or beekeeping to try to win a cash prize, while at the same time contributing to the enormously popular Gallery (www.vita-europe.com) which is benefitting beekeepers across the globe.
Since its launch last September, the Vita Gallery – which contains more than 300 images of bees and beekeeping – has received huge interest from beekeepers across the globe.
“The Gallery has users from more than 600 beekeepers in 40 countries and we’ve been delighted by the spontaneous feedback from may of them,” said Jeremy Owen, Sales Director of Vita (Europe) Ltd. “We knew that many beekeepers needed images to accompany their talks on bees and beekeeping – but we never quite realised just how many people give such talks. The Vita Gallery is turning into an important educational tool and we therefore want to expand it by inviting anyone to contribute their best bee-related photos.”
The winner of the competition will receive a €50 cash prize, plus Vita anti-varroa products for 10 colonies. There is also a special prize for the winner of the under 16s category.
The deadline for entries to the competition is 1 December 2010, allowing plenty of time for people to take some photos this season, or select ones from their collection.
To enter the competition, just email up to three digital photographs (no larger than 1mb each) relating to bees or beekeeping to firstname.lastname@example.org. The theme is broad, with current photographs in the gallery ranging from vintage beekeeping equipment to shots of active colonies and foraging bees.
For full application details and information about prizes, see: www.vita-europe.com. Vita reserves the right to use any photographs in the Vita Gallery, but will acknowledge the source on the Vita Gallery website.
