30 July 2020  CHALLENGE #8: Reviving the summer holiday postcard

 

The next Challenge goes ‘old school’ and invites you to revive the summer holiday postcard. The goal is to create your own postcards using photographs taken since the beginning of the summer (1 June). You may use an image or images taken anywhere you have visited or will visit during that period, be it a city, town or village, the countryside or seaside, or a specific location such as a park or building. It could even be a postcard showcasing the birds in your back garden!

Please submit up to five postcards to web@bishopthorpecc.co.uk no later than midnight on Sunday 9 August and they will subsequently be displayed in a Gallery on this website. Please follow the instructions for Submitting Images at https://bishopthorpecc.co.uk/submitting-images/.

If you’re not a Club member, you are more than welcome to join in this challenge so please feel free to send us up to five postcards and we’ll post our favourites in the Gallery.

Please note: the Galleries containing the submitted images for ‘Challenge #7: Positive use of negative space‘ and Cuppa & Capture: ‘Take Three‘ have now been published. Please take a look at the striking and imaginative arrays of images.
