Google+ August photography competition

Thank you to everyone who entered our July photo competition – we had some very creative entries. We are going through the entries now and will pick the winning images soon.

Now on to our August theme:

The Theme

This month’s theme is Block Colour. The stark contrast of lighting and the abundance of colourful festivals and events make August a perfect time to capture bold blocks of colour. It’s a theme designed to create abstract thinking and interesting compositions.

How to enter

If you’re new to Google+, it’s quick and easy to sign up, set up a profile and start sharing your photos. Once you’re up and running over on Google+, add the Wex Photographic page to your circles.

Post up to three of your most relevant Block Colour photos by midday on Sunday 31st August 2014 and be sure to:

  • include a short caption or description
  • tag your post with both our page +Wex Photographic and the comp tag #winwithwex (this step is important – it’s how we’ll track and see all the entries!)

If you’re entering images that are already in your Google+ photo albums, just reshare your entries to your timeline and be sure to follow the instructions above when you post them to make sure they’re tagged correctly. Here’s an example of how to do it and what it should look like:

The prizes
