Photographic Competition Summary

Congratulations for thinking about entering our photographic competiton!

First off don't get too hung up on the quality of the photo. The main issue is around the idea that you are looking to convey. "One Game, One Community" is a pretty broad statement so you can interpret it as you see fit and you can have up to 200 words to explain your thinking and what you are trying to convey. So a picture may be worth a thousand words but two hundred to explain it wouldn't go amiss!

Secondly there's not a huge amount of time so please get thinking and snapping. The closing date for entries is 5pm Friday 11th November. Maybe you've already taken a picture that's perfect for the job, but either way when you do have an image you like, please send it both to us and to Kick It Out! for entry in the competitions (our emails are for us and for Kick It Out!).

One Game, One Community!
Thirdly, don't forget to add the following information with your entry
- Name of photographer
- Title of photograph
- Accompanying text (optional) 200 words
- Name of school/organisation
- Contact details of member of staff
- The number of young people that worked on the entry
- Age(s) of entrant(s)
The competition was originally set up for schools but individual entries are also allowed and the national competition has prizes that include being a mascot for an England game. Merton and AFC Wimbledon will be putting our heads together to come up with our own range of prizes as well. There will be two competitions, one for keystage 2 and one for keystage 3 so make sure we know which you are entering!
That's about it really. We hope entrants have a good time and we look forward to seeing their photos soon. If you have any further questions or queries drop us a line on and we'll do our best to help.

Good luck and happy snapping!

One Game, One Community!
