BBW 30-Day Photo Challenge – Day 11: Household Item

12 Apr

Day 11 in the Blessed Beyond Words 30-Day Photo Challenge has ‘Household Item’ as the challenge topic. I work from home, so it was relatively easy for me to prowl around the apartment to get a photo, but not as easy to try and take something truly unique.

As usual, I turned to Flickr for some inspiration.

Photos of Household Items

Here are some samples of some household items that I found on Flickr.

Environmental Photographer of the Year [Photo Contests]

28 Jan

From the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management’s website:

CIWEM’s Environmental Photographer of the Year honours amateur and professional photographers who use their ability to raise awareness of environmental and social issues. The competition encourages entries that are contemporary, creative, resonant, challenging, original and beautiful. But most of all, we want your pictures to inspire people around the world to start taking care of our environment.

The exhibition is open to all professional and amateur, national and international photographers of all ages working with digital and film photography. However, you must ensure that the image quality meets the competition’s criteria.

I think this is a really interesting competition as it has some inspiring categories (if the environment is not already inspiring enough for you). They include:

  • Mott MacDonald’s Changing Climates
  • Innovation in the Environment (New Category for 2010)
  • The Natural World
  • Human Waste

    The Underwater World (New Category for 2010)
  • Quality of Life
  • A View From the Western World (New Category for 2010)
  • Young Environmental Photographer of the Year – Under 16
  • Young Environmental Photographer of the Year – Under 21

Some of the past entries are really interesting and moving in terms of content, and get you thinking about our natural resources and the impact of their pollution and loss on our lives.

Entries close at 5pm on 31st July 2010.

Check out the competition website for entry conditions, information and inspiration!

Good luck!
