2013 International Beekeeping Photo Competition
Vita (Europe) Ltd launches 2013 international beekeeping photographic competition.
This photo competition has also cashed prizes and beekeeping products for the winners, and the best pictures will feature in the Vita 2014 Calendar.
How to participate?
Its simple, entrants can submit up to four photos (up to 1mb each) relating to honey bees or beekeeping by emailing them to [email protected]. Photos can be on any relevant topic: from honey bee behavior, to beekeeping practices, foraging honeybees and honeybee produce.
The deadline for entries is 20 October 2013.
Vita Europe has the free, online Vita Gallery (www.vita-europe.com/gallery) which is proving highly popular with beekeeping speakers looking for photographs for their presentations and with beekeepers wanting to learn more about beekeeping experiences across the world. If you will participate in the photo competition your photos will automatically be adept to Vita Gallery.
The winner of the competition will receive a €50 cash prize, plus Vita anti-varroa products for 10 colonies. There is also a special prize for the winner of the under-16s category. Calendars will be sent to everyone whose picture is featured.
Jeremy Owen, Sales Director of Vita (Europe) Ltd, explained: “Our annual competition is becoming quite a beekeeping fixture and this year we will be having a larger print run of the calendar so that we can supply the increasing demand for it. It’s one of the great pleasures of my year to help in the judging of the photographs — even though it is very difficult to select winners because the pictures are all so fascinating.”
