My back yard …. the good, the bad and the down right ugly
What do you consider to be your back yard? Your block? Your neighbourhood? Your town or city? The more expansive of you might even consider it to be the planet we inhabit. Whichever way you look at it, your back yard is a very personal space – ideal subject matter for the documentary photography. This is an opportunity to comment on the people and places that are important to you, a chance to introduce us to the society, sights, secrets that are very special to your own back yard.
Entries can either be a single image or a series of up to six related images.
You may supply a caption of up to 100 words to support your entry.
This year for the first time we are including video as well as still, video entries will obviously be judged separately.
