Photography Competition 2020

As we have not been able to hold the Shows this year, let’s make up for it with lots of great photo entries for the 2020 PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION, which is open to all amateur photographers. Ingrid Weel of Ingrid Weel Media Ltd., who has been the Official Photographer at the HoEAG Spring Alpaca Fiesta for the last four years, will blind judge them in the following categories – Portrait, Natural Behaviour, Abstract and Under 16yr old Photographer. Plus an additional category – LOCKDOWN SPECIAL!  

To be eligible, images must include an alpaca and be submitted in 300dpi resolution and no smaller than 1000 pixels on the long edge. Some smartphones have 2 different options, so you need to choose the bigger file!  The resolution will be checked before judging and only images of the correct specifications can be included, so please check before you submit your entry.

The results will be announced at the HoEAG Autumn Fleece Showon Sunday 4th October. Prizes will be awarded in each category and the overall winning photograph will be featured on the front cover of the Spring Alpaca Fiesta 2021 catalogue with a full credit.

All entries may be featured at some point, again with full credits, on our website or in other promotional material.

Please send your entry to with your name, herd name, email address/telephone number & age if under 18yrs. 

Closing date: Sunday 6th September.
