Penton Photography Competition

Penton Photography Competition


Spring is in the air! The bare trees of winter are unfurling tender leaves, the air is warming and blossoms are bursting forth in abundance. To celebrate the Earth’s awakening in the Southern Hemisphere, Penton will be holding a Spring themed photography competition with a R100 voucher for the winning photo.

The competition will run from 10 September 2013 to 25 October 2013 and is open to all amateur photographers residing in South Africa. Entries can be of nature, altars, rituals etc., as long as they are centred on the theme of Spring.

To enter, simply send in your photos inspired by the season, along with your name and email address to before 25 October 2013.
