Metro and National Rail photographic competition

Have a snappy Christmas.....

said the Metro on Monday as they are calling all amateur photographers to enter a competition where you have a chance to win one of two prizes worth around £1,000.

All you have to do is take a shot of London from a train. Now that's a National Rail train, not a tube. According to Metro "Viewing London from a train offers a wealth of photographic opportunities. Competition entries could show famous monuments or landmarks ......Alternatively, photos could be of attractive parks, streets or skylines that simply sum up the city at Christmas - a view that may be missed from the pavement or in a car." The full
terms and conditions of the competition are here, and photographs can be submitted in either print or digital format and entrants must include their name, address, date of birth, contact telephone number and email address. They should also include details of where the photograph was taken.

The prizes are a Pentax Optio 55S digital camera (worth £179) and a weekend break for a family of four in London (consisting of return rail travel, two nights bed and breakfast in a Best Western hotel, tickets for the London Eye, dinner and tickets to a West End show). There are two categories - one for under 16's and one for over 16's.

All entries must be received by 6th January 2006. The winners will be announced week commencing 9th January 2006. Prints must be sent to Metro photocompetition, Fourth Floor, 121 Great Portland Street, London, W1W 6Ql and digital images, no larger than 8Mb should be emailed to londonphotos@atoc.org.

Good luck!
