Time running out to enter BIGGA photographic competition

Time is running out to enter the annual BIGGA photo competition, with the deadline set for Friday 25 August.


And with a top-of-the-range GoPro HERO5 action cam up for grabs for the winner, there's no time to lose!
Did you know last year's winner of the BIGGA photographic competition used his smartphone to take the picture?
Every BIGGA member, from the keenest amateur photographer to the most casual cameraphone snapper is encouraged to get involved.
From Cornwall to John O'Groats and all around the world, BIGGA members are privileged to work among some of the most spectacular scenery and beautiful landscapes around. And that's what makes the BIGGA photographic competition a real highlight of the green keeping year.
You can enter up to five images into the competition. Just email them over to karl@bigga.co.uk.
This time around we've got a brand new prize up for grabs, with the lucky winner being presented with a top-of-the-range GoPro HERO5 Black 4K LCD Action Cam.
The HERO5 Black is the most powerful and easy-to-use GoPro ever and is an incredible tool for any photographer, allowing you to take professional quality action photographs and video.
The competition winner will also receive a framed print of their winning image, to be presented at the Welcome Celebration at BTME 2018 on Tuesday 23 January.
Last year's winner was John Parry, of Wrexham GC, who took a spectacular image of hole changing at his club, with the sun rising in the background.
It was a stunning photograph and one that blew the judges away, especially as John took it using his smartphone.
"I was absolutely over the moon to have won," said John. "There were a lot of really good pictures entered into the competition, so I couldn't believe it."
Eleven other finalists will also be selected for the annual BIGGA calendar, so we're on the lookout for images that represent green keeping life on the course throughout all the seasons of the year.
