The BIG SMILE Mission

PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION FOR 6 - 14 YEAR OLDS

Ok kids – so I know we’re all stuck at home at the moment because of this poopy virus.

How are you getting on?

Do you fancy a challenge?  

How about a bit of photography?

You could win an Ellie J Photography studio family portrait session with photos included for your family once this virus has gone away and we are all out and about again.

The world can be a worrying place at times, so I want you to join me on a special mission. You can photograph anything you want, but it has to be something or someone that will make us SMILE and spread a little happiness. Now don’t just run off and photograph your X-Box, I want you to think about this!

As this is all about fun, I’m not going to be too strict about composition and focus (boring technical stuff), just give it some thought, try to be original and try to make the photo look nice and not too blurry.

When you’re done, get an adult to send your photo to me on Facebook Messenger along with your name, age and a message explaining why you think your photograph will make us smile.  My Facebook address is www.Facebook.com/EllieJPhotos

Start your message “This photo makes" or "These photos make me smile because……........”

My daughter took these photos of our dog Riley. 

These photos make me smile because....well Riley just smiles and laughs all by himself!

VERY IMPORTANT!!!  Make sure your mum/dad or guardian is happy for you to enter this competition.  Please be careful when you are taking your photograph, ask before borrowing someone's camera or phone and most of all don't do anything that could hurt yourself or anyone else (pets included!).  This includes obeying the Government's advice at the moment about social distancing (mum and dad will explain if you're not sure about that).

Rules are at the bottom (get an adult to read them, they are boring). Good luck!  I look forward to smiling at your photos!

Closing date is Thursday 30th April 2020 so make sure you get your photos to me before then!
