Museum of Natural History Photography Competition

From our source deep in the bowels of the NHM in Oxford we get details of a photography competition with not bad prizes. Of course to get your hands on a prize you do have to enter. Here is a link to the page on their website http://www.oum.ox.ac.uk/about/artfund.htm

Basically you snap and either email or post the image(s) to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #motyphoto (and ideally the Museum handle too which is @morethanadodo).  There doesn’t seem to be a subject area but NHM has so much to photograph.

Museum of the Year Photography Competition

To celebrate our nomination, take part in the Museum of the Year Photography Competition by tagging your favourite photos of the Museum with #motyphoto on Instagram or Twitter. You can also upload your photos toartfund.org/prize/photo-competition.

Photos must be submitted by 31 May 2015.

Renowned British documentary photographer and photo-journalist, Martin Parr will be the lead judge in selecting a shortlist from all submitted photographs and the public can vote online for their favourite between 8-22 June 2015, with the winner announced 25 June.

The winning photograph will be published in the Art Fund’s Art Quarterly magazine and the winner will receive a photography holiday in Berlin for two plus a £500 photography equipment voucher.
