Wex Photographic have a twitter competition every week for people to enter a photo they have taken in the previous week, and each week they would have a first, second and third place. All of the first place winners would have their photos printed and on display in London, Shoreditch once the competition had finished.
This competition is something I would try and enter every week. It really does encourage you to get out and create something each week. It’s also a great way of connecting with other photographers across the UK.
Over the year, I came first, twice. Overall, I came joint 6th by the end of the year. Obviously, I had to get over to drinks reception launch at the exhibition in January for the craic! Spot my smoke grenade photo in the shop window and all!
