DigiPad.co.uk / UKAR Creative Photography Competition

Post by LN Strike Eagle »

The kind folks at DigiPad.co.uk have been in touch with us, and have offered us a number of sensor cleaning kits for Digital SLR cameras to give away as prizes in a competition. The details are as follows:

  • First Place: A Deluxe Kit (10x DigiPads, Hurricane Blower and 59ml Eclipse with full instructions) + Extra Pads + Lens Cleaner

  • Second Place: A Deluxe Kit (10x DigiPads, Hurricane Blower and 59ml Eclipse with full instructions)

  • Runners Up (x3): Starter Kit (5x DigiPads and 15ml Eclipse Fluid with full instructions)

We'll run the competition from now until 31st July 2010, enough time to cover all the major airshows of the summer.

UKAR has long championed creative, outside the box photography, so the theme for the competition is simply "Creative Photography". Obviously, aeroplanes/aviation is the subject, but not necessarily just from airshows - bases, airports etc are all welcome too.

All entries must have been taken between the dates of Tuesday 8th June 2010 - Saturday 31st July 2010.

You can post your entries in this thread. One photo per person, although you can change it up until the closing date.


In addition to this competition, all UKAR members can claim a bonus on each order placed at DigiPad.co.uk. You can choose to have 3 extra Digipads (or 5 extra if you order a Deluxe kit), or you can have a 15% discount on your order.

When placing your order, enter "UKAR 15" into the"Order and delivery comments" section for your 15% discount, or "UKAR Extra" for your extra DigiPads.

Saw the potential for this photo at the start of the Day and then waited for them to start up for the Dutch air power demo.

Seeing as I had some favourable feedback on this, my first posting, I thought I would submit this - Defford Air Day 19th June DH.84 Dragon G-ECAN

Looking forward to viewing more submissions,

OK, I'll give it a go. Favourite aircraft of mine in a kind of creative photo. Draken against the sunlight gives the impression of being under water.
