One talented young photographer is set to benefit from a tie up between the Bulldog Rally, Writtle Photographic and the VK Chatsworth Rally Show when the rally, on March 28, hosts a Photographic Competition.
The competition is open to any amateur photographer aged 21 and under, who takes pictures on the event and submits them to the organisers within 14 days for judging.
The winner will receive a framed print of their winning photograph donated by Writtle Photographic and a pair of complimentary tickets for both days of the VK Chatsworth Rally Show kindly given by the show's promoter, Malcolm Neill.
The competition is the brainchild of professional photographer Mark Writtle of Writtle Photographics in Bridgnorth, who are the official photographers for the Bulldog Rally.
"I decided to do something for the many spectators who take photographs on events," explained Mark Writtle. "I am someone who as a 17-year-old picked up my camera, drove to a rally and stood in the forests for hours taking pictures of the cars. I can therefore empathise with them and understand the passion they have for their hobby.
“In my case my hobby became my profession and I consider myself very lucky to be making a living from doing something that I enjoy so much. This competition is all about giving an incentive to some young person who might be looking to follow that route or might simply enjoy rallying and photography."
"I am delighted to tie up with the Bulldog Rally and Writtle Photographic in this venture to encourage young photographers to become involved within our great sport,” added Neill. “By providing them with tickets to both days of the VK Vodka Kick Chatsworth Rally Show on 6th and 7th June, we will be giving them the opportunity to get snap happy with the spectacular display of classic and modern rally cars we shall have both on show and on the timed rally stages. It should be like putting them in heaven!"
