For our PIXELS competition, members can submit an image to the theme which is then judged externally where a gold, silver or bronze can be awarded. At the end of the year, the overall winner is announced.
The themes for the 2021 competition are based on song titles and are:
|January||All The Small Things||Blink 182||Time to show us your best macro shot.|
|March||Too Many Fish In The Sea||The Marvelettes||Image can be any fish:
"...short ones, tall ones, fine ones, kind ones"
|May||You're My Best Friend||Queen||Or more importantly your dive buddy! Your dive buddy doesn’t have to be the main subject but must be somewhere in the image.
|July||Under The Boardwalk||The Drifters||Image must have been taken underneath a structure that people can walk on. Image must show enough of the structure to clearly indicate|
|September||Octopus's Garden||The Beatles||Obviously, an octopus image; but so as not to upset any of their tentacled/multi-armed cousins, image can be of any cephalopod (squid, cuttlefish, nautilus).|
|November||All Things Bright and Beautiful||Church Hymn||Just the traditional end of year Open theme, image

“All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,….”
