Photo Competition

Grab your camera or smart phone and head outdoors to get pictures for our first ‘Our Outdoors’ photography competition for local young people aged 7 – 19.

Enter our photo competition for young people,  who live in Bedminster Down, Bishopsworth, Hartcliffe, Headley Park,  Highridge, Teyfant, Whitchurch Park, Withywood and Uplands.

For a quick run down of the rules see here.

The winner of each category in the Stephen Hewitt Young Photographer of the Year Award will win £100 cash.

Cash prizes of £50 and £25 for next two runners up in each category.


The competition launched on Monday 4 May and all entries need to be in by the deadline of 5pm on Monday 20 July.

The categories are:

  1. For young people aged 7 – 11 on Monday 20 July
  2. For young people aged 12 – 15 on Monday 20 July
  3. For young people aged 16 – 19 on Monday 20 July

We’re looking for fantastic photos of our local area – striking, moving or quirky images that tell a story.


The ‘Our Outdoors’ theme includes any picture taken outdoors locally.

Possible ideas include pictures of:

  • Your walk to school, college or work
  • Family, friends and pets
  • Outdoor selfies
  • Local parks and green spaces
  • Wildlife
  • Your back garden
  • The urban environment – it could be an interesting building, unusual angle on a bus-stop or people chatting on the street
  • Anywhere outside


The judges are HWCP’s Carrie Ellis and Anne-Marie Rogers; Carolyn Hassan, Knowle West Media Centre; two of Stephen Hewitt’s family.

Judging criteria

  • Judges will be looking for pictures that are well composed and clear
  • Pictures that stand out: original or something thought provoking
  • Images that say something about the area – this could be positive or not so positive

See Carolyn Hassan’s tips for young photographers.
