‘Winter Blues’ – Photo Contest

Jan 14, 2016

Winter Blues Photo Contest 2016

Some of you will be aware that 2016 is the first year in which you can organise your life with the help of a WWOOF UK calendar. The photographs used for each of the twelve months were the winning entries chosen from our member’s photographic competition.

The wonderful ‘WWOOFing in action’ shots came from hosts and WWOOFers who had captured the essence of what WWOOFing is all about in a single image.

Now we are holding a special Photo Contest to help drive out the infamous ‘Winter blues’ as we invite you to relive some of your golden WWOOFing moments by choosing your favourite WWOOFy photo for the contest. As a token of our appreciation we will be awarding a WWOOF UK 2016 Calendar to those WWOOFers and hosts whose photos we feel best portray the spirit of WWOOFing.

Please send your digital photo to socialmedia@wwoof.org.uk 

Closing date for entries is 14.2.16
