Whisky Magazine Photo Challenge

Dig out your cameras and polish those lenses – the 2015 Whisky Magazine Photo Challenge is open for entries

Presented by Whisky Magazine

Last year’s entrants to our photographic challenge managed to walk, crawl, crouch and wait patiently with their tripods and cameras for the ultimate moment before pressing the shutter. Some of their outstanding results are featured on these pages to help spur you into action for this year.

Whether you shoot on a phone or use the latest digital camera, capturing that precise moment in time on film or in a digital image has not changed since the conception of photography; it's all in those breathless moments leading up to commitment. Blink, and you have missed it; not enough preparation, and the image will never be what you want.

It will be this tenacity that the judges are looking for in this year's competition. With the inclusion of Instagram (all those darkroom skills that took ages to learn now bundled into an easy to use program) and mobile phone pictures, the emphasis will fall once more on those entrants who show a great eye for a cracking photo. All we ask is that photos are of suitable size and quality and 300dpi is best.

Some fantastic prizes are up for grabs, all of which have been specially selected and provided by our sponsor, Teeling Whiskey. From the Teeling Vintage Reserve range, consisting of some of the oldest Irish Single Malts ever bottled, we are offering these prizes to the top three entries:

1st Prize: Teeling 30 Years Old Single Malt (1 of only 250 bottles)
2nd Prize: Teeling 26 Years Old Single Malt (1 of 1,000 bottles)
3rd Prize Teeling 21 Years Old Singe Malt (1 of 5,000 bottles)

Entry is now closed
