The British Baseball Photography Competition (BBPC; run in conjunction withÂ Project COBB Photography)Â has been showcasing the work of both experienced and novice photographers from the baseball community over the past two years.Â The 2012 season sees the third running of the competition, and although it is still early days, it looks like it will be a challenge to top the total ofÂ 145 photos submitted in last year’s competition.
But the slow start is quite probably in large part due to the unpleasant weather we’ve endured (and the resulting lack of fixtures) during the opening weeks of the season. Cold, wet conditions do not make sports photographers eager to get their equipment out.
The good news is that with the glorious weather we are now enjoying, there should be games galore and no excuse to leave the camera at home.Â In addition, the submission process is now slicker than ever as the clever folks at BaseballSoftballUKÂ have built a special online entry form.
The online entry formÂ canÂ be accessed by clickingÂ HERE.
Once we get to October, a shortlist will be drawn up and published for a public vote, and the winner — who will receive Â£100 in photo vouchers — will be announced in November.Â For handy hints on how to please the judges, check outÂ this article.Â Full competition rules can be found by clickingÂ here.
