‘The Guardian’s’ amateur photography competition ‘Be there’ is quite possibly the paper’s best kept secret. I say secret because I only stumbled across it this morning, but for those of you, who like me, apparently live in a box here’s the low down. ‘Be there’ is a travel photograph competition that encourages wandering nomads or artistically inclined tourists or just your average tourist to send in their most dramatic or beautiful holiday snap. By saying ‘holiday snap’ I’m hardly doing the previous entrants justice – their photographs are much much more than that, but my point is anyone can enter. Even you. Each month the competition focuses on a particular theme (January was ‘action’, February was ‘animals’ and March will be ‘water’) and the monthly winner will have their photograph professionally mounted and exhibited at the winner’s exhibition at King’s Palace next January. But, here’s the big pull, if you’re chosen as the overall winner, the prize is a trip to Churchill, Canada for an Arctic adventure including whale watching and polar bear tours. The deadline for March entries is 24 March. Even I’m tempted to take a shot at it….
