How to Enter...

Just post your pics on our facebook group with 'Competition Entry' as the title and tag Ross Hockham in it. The idea is to get you out looking up, trying different things, learning and having fun.


Its completely free to enter but only one pic a month is allowed, each month will have a different category announced on our FB.


Please also add as much info on the subject, where to find it, what it is and the equipment you took it with as you can to help others learn.


Each month is categorised to make it more fun, with a good range of subjects so theres something for everyone from the professional to the amateur to enjoy!


The Prizes -

The overall winner each month will win a UK Astronomy Calendar with their image printed on the month they won after the year is up.


There will be 2 runners up each month who will have the chance to have their image entered into the Calendar for December.


Winning photographs and runners up will also be exhibited in a gallery the followling year, details will be posted in the FB group.


Dominic Guerney has sponsored all the prints via Epson for which we are very thankful.
