Monthly Competition 6 Days to Enter and Category Returns.

Mario Acerboni category

We have just had confirmation that the Mario Acerboni 4-in-1 (Wedding) competition has returned for 2013. I have just opened the category in the April competition so you have 7 days to enter this category for the first time this year.

*image is last years winner by Martin Crombie

Category Definition

In this category, we are inviting wedding images comprising 4 in 1. The images must be innovative and represent the story of the day. Arrange the four images, as you prefer on one 2000x2000 pixel image template. Creativity in presentation is also welcome and as with all other categories remember to name the jpg correctly prior to uploading.

We look forward to seeing you entries


There are only 6 days left to get your entries in for April's monthly competition.
