The Theme: Abstract

Allow your creativity and photographic imagination to flow free this month to celebrate the February theme of Abstract. Why not create something different by approaching your subject from an unusual angle? Perhaps you could shoot only a small section of your subject; or maybe try defocusing your lens before you press the trigger? Whatever technique you choose to employ, send us your favourite images for a chance to win £100-worth of Wex vouchers.


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, add the Wex Photographic page to your circles.

Post up to three of your favourite images relevant to the theme Abstract by midday on Saturday 28th February 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!)


Sharing photo on Google+


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