WWOOF UK 2016: photo competition and calendar

Aug 31, 2015

Calling all members of WWOOF UK (WWOOFers and hosts). We are holding a competition to find photographs of WWOOFers in Action – the best will be chosen for inclusion in a very special WWOOF UK Calendar for 2016

The subject/s in the photo will be actively WWOOFing (within the UK only) – digging, weeding, harvesting, milking, lambing, sowing, planting, loading/unloading, sawing, pruning, chopping, pressing, cooking, eating, even washing-up! 

As the end product is to be a calendar, the photo can be one taken in Winter, Spring, Summer or Autumn. 


We will credit the winning twelve photographs with the photographer’s name and a brief description of where the shot was taken. A caption will included on each page/month and so if you have a line or two that summarises how you feel about WWOOFing, then send us this too. 

So please help us to promote WWOOF; this amazing opportunity for people to learn about an alternative to the mainstream – to connect to the land, each other and themselves. 

We welcome images supplied as JPEG files. Those images selected for the calendar will be printed at 210mm by 150mm and so your images should be of sufficient file size and quality for this. As a guide, an image taken on a 5 megapixel camera set to its highest resolution setting and with no or little cropping would be the minimum size required. If your camera has higher settings, then please use those. 

Please send your photo files and/or captions by email to socialmedia@wwoof.org.uk 

**** Your entries must be with us by 1st October 2015. ****

Growing Roots in the Local Organic Farming Scene

By Aurora Moxon Hello, I’m Aurora, a thirty-two-year-old who is happiest in a pair of muddy wellies harvesting apples for scrumpy making, sowing veg for the year ahead and learning hands-on how to make cheese. If my hands aren’t covered in soil, scrumpy or curds, then...
