Help Me Choose A Winner!!

The photographs you shared with me for the #KatieJadePhotoChallenge were fantastic! I’m so proud of everyone of you who took part. Each photograph was unique and thought provoking, which shows you all really thought about the themes very creatively. 

Here is a selection of photographs that were entered during the competition:

Changes - I saw a lot of personal changes, whether it would be about a person and their body or outlook, changes in their environment or steps people are taking to make changes. It was a beautiful collection to start the challenge! 

Character - This theme was taken in two directions. The first was a human characteristic or fictional character. The second was a characteristic of furniture and architecture. There was a really nice mix of the two.

Temptation - This theme was a lot of fun. A lot of people looked at giving in to food or buying something they wanted. Others looked at the negativity of temptation, reflecting weaknesses in humans. The difference in the type of imagery was quite dramatic!

Light - I really liked seeing the photos for this week. Light could take on so many forms, the images I saw were so varied. There was some of different types of lighting (bulbs, fairylights, etc). Some people looked at how light can transform natural surroundings. Others looked at the word “light” and what it meant to them. Another week of fantastic photography!

In To The Future - This was a tricky theme, I admit, but I really wanted to get you thinking creatively… and you did! It was nice to see a lot of you thinking about your own future and where you would like to see yourself. There was a lot of positive imagery which was a fantastic way to end the challenge.

So… who won? Well that’s the thing, I have found it so difficult to decide on a winner. I looked through and pulled out my favourite photo from each week, and I thought to myself “Everyone has spent so much time and effort to take part in this challenge, so why don’t I make the choosing of the winner even more exciting, fantastic and nail-biting… hmmm”… So that is what I have done.

#KatieJadePhotoChallenge

Today is the fifth and final week of the #KatieJadePhotoChallenge.  The theme “In To The Future” runs till the 6th September. 

So, what does “In To The Future” mean to you? Can you think of futuristic technology you use? Or perhaps, could you look back to ten, twenty, thirty or more years back and think of a piece of technology which seemed so futuristic then? Is there something that could or you would like to happen in the future? Are you looking to the near future or the distant future? Are you inspired by futuristic scientific concepts?

Share your “In To The Future” photographs with me by uploading them to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and use the hashtag #KatieJadePhotoChallenge. 

If you still have photos from the “Changes”, “Character”, “Temptation” or “Light” weeks which you have not uploaded or not finished, don’t panic! You can still upload them, but make sure you caption them with the theme title so it separates them from the images. This is the final week of the challenge so make sure you upload your remaining photographs this week or they won’t be accepted!

At the end of August I will be giving away a £20 voucher to the overall winner of the challenge. GOOD LUCK!! 

Thank you to all of you who have taken part in #KatieJadePhotoChallenge so far!


#KatieJadePhotoChallenge

Today is the fourth week of the #KatieJadePhotoChallenge.The penultimate week!! How quickly time flies!! The theme “Light” runs till the 30th August. 

So, what does “Light” mean to you? Did you know, the word photography comes from the greek words phos (“light”) and graphis/graphi (“stylus”/”paintbrush”), therefore translated to painting with light.  Will you take a high key (brightly lit) or low key (dimly lit) photograph? Could you use light to represent a person, place, emotion or phrase?

Share your “Light” photographs with me by uploading them to Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and use the hashtag #KatieJadePhotoChallenge. I can’t wait to see your photos! 

If you still have photos from the “Changes”, “Character” or “Temptation” weeks which you have not uploaded or not finished, don’t panic! You can still upload them, but make sure you caption them with the theme title so it separates them from the images. Thank you to all of you who have taken part in #KatieJadePhotoChallenge so far!

At the end of August I will be giving away a £20 voucher to the overall winner of the challenge. GOOD LUCK!!
