Our Photo Competition is for EVERYBODY

Photography Competition

The theme for our competition is HOME

How would you interpret that?
Is it:

Your family?
A loved one’s arms?
Your house/garden?
A boat coming into harbour ?
Sheep in a pen?
A warm fire in a hearth?
or even an abstract that conveys a sense of HOME
