Vita (Europe) Ltd is calling on beekeepers internationally to enter its 2013 photographic competition.
There will be cash prizes and beekeeping products for the winners, and the best pictures will feature in the Vita 2014 Calendar. The entries will also be added to the hundreds of honeybee-related photos in the free, online Vita Gallery (www.vita-europe.com/gallery) which is proving highly popular with beekeeping speakers looking for photographs for their presentations and with beekeepers wanting to learn more about beekeeping experiences across the world.
Entrants can submit up to four photos (up to 1mb each) relating to honeybees or beekeeping by emailing them to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos can be on any relevant topic: from honeybee behavior, to beekeeping practices, foraging honeybees
and honeybee produce.
The deadline for entries is 20 October 2013.
The winner of the competition will receive a €50 cash prize, plus Vita anti-varroa products for 10 colonies. There is also a special prize for the winner of the under-16s category. Calendars will be sent to everyone whose picture is featured.
Jeremy Owen, Sales Director of Vita (Europe) Ltd, explained: “Our annual competition is becoming quite a beekeeping fixture and this year we will be having a larger print run of the calendar so that we can supply the increasing demand for it. It’s one of the great pleasures of my year to help in the judging of the photographs — even though it is very difficult to select winners because the pictures are all so fascinating.”
