Deadline for National Rail Photo Competition

Get your pictures taken from National Rail Trains in today

Just a reminder that today is the deadline for pictures for the
National Rail Photo Competition that I mentioned in December. To enter you have to take a shot of London from a train. Now that's a National Rail train, not a tube. According to Metro who the competition is in conjuction with: "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."

I've entered a few including the one below of Vauxhall Bus Station (which is next to Vauxhall Tube station) from my South West Train at Vauxhall National Rail Station

Vauxhall Stations

I don't actually think this shot is that great, but I like being able to see the reflection of the train window and I also like the general mad shapes of the bus station there anyway.

Full terms and conditions for the competition can be found here. 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. The prizes which are worth up to £1,000 and more entry details were already mentioned in my original post.

Good luck if you are entering!
