Greek Island Photo Competition

As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, and how true that is, especially when looking for a holiday. Unfortunately for me I don’t have the time to travel to every Greek island and take photos of all the villages, beaches and sight seeing attractions no matter how much I would like to. For that reason I’ve decided to give away £100 Amazon credit to the person that sends me the best photo that I can use on the site.

By submitting your photos to the competition you are granting me permission to use them on the site. All photos must be your own work and free from watermarks.

Tips for taking great photos.

  • Have a look round the frame of the photo before taking the image and make sure there’s nothing distracting in there
  • Make sure they are straight, line up the horizon if it’s in view, if not make sure the buildings or other structures are vertical
  • Please no people, I’m sure your friends and family are very attractive but that’s not what we’re looking for here
  • Get focused, blurry images are not going to win any prizes so make sure your subject is in focus
  • Pick the right time of day, otherwise your image will be too bright or covered in shadows
  • Try different angles get up high or down low to maximize the drama of the image
