Photographic Competition

'Through the Lens'


 The Southborough Society invites photographers of all ages to submit their strongest images which they feel successfully record an aspect of Southborough life. The subject matter may include people, places, buildings, landscapes, events or wildlife.

The only stipulation is that images must clearly show a visually identifiable connection with Southborough or High Brooms.

Anyone can enter and you do not have to be a member of the Southborough Society. The only rules are that the photograph must have been taken in Southborough or High Brooms between 1st of September, 2018 and the 31st of August, 2019.

There are two categories:

How do I enter?

Simply send in your images to us at along with your name, contact number, email and for student category entrants, please include your age.

All images entered will become property of the Southborough Society and entrants therefore agree to allow the Society to display and/or reproduce the prints for its own purposes without charge. The photographs will be displayed on the Southborough Society website showing details of the entrant, the category entered and the location of the photograph.


Judging of the images will be undertaken by the Chief Photographer from The Courier newspaper.
