THE BIGGER PICTURE COMPETITION

28th September 2011
As well as Rankin, the judging panel includes Paul Sanders from The Times newspaper, and freelance snapper Rory Lindsay. Explaining his involvement Rankin says, “It's so important to support talent in young people and to encourage them to try new things. This competition highlights what youth clubs can do and why we need them in our communities.”

Simon Ainslie, Nokia UK Country Head, comments, “I think this is a great way for young people to capture the things that are important to them. To have such an eminent panel judging their efforts will give twelve budding photographers a huge confidence boost and – hopefully - the ambition to pursue it as more than a hobby.”

Prizes include a Nokia X7 phones for the 12 finalists, with a day in Rankin’s studio in London for the winner in the under 18 category, and the over 18s the winner will go on a 3-day trip to take photographs of the Northern Lights in Finland courtesy of Aurorahunters.
