Well yet another astounding competition, with hundreds and hundreds of entries of a vast range of subjects. This was one of the largest competitions to date, and it shows how great our readers can be at capturing stunning macro photos.

With so many good entries it’s a shame we can’t have more than one winner this week. Narrowing it down to a single shot has been difficult, but this week our chosen winner is Elise Mitchell with her shot of the ladybirds. The simple composition of this shot is complimented with the selective colouring, making thy ladybirds jump out of the screen. Well done Elise, you’ll receive an email shortly regarding claiming your prize.

Winner – Elise Mitchell

Competition Details

Close-up photography is an extremely interesting genre, as you can transform everyday objects like pencils into fascinating photos, as well as give us a close-up view of extremely beautiful things like flowers. Insects make for great macro shots, as we don’t often get to study these creatures in as much detail as we can from a fascinating macro. You can choose whatever subject you like, though, and often the weirder the subject, the more fascinating the final result can be – including lovely textures and fine details. Whatever subject you go for, we want to see your shots!

This week, we are giving away a fantastic 30 x 45cm acrylic print, courtesy of the UK’s leading photographic retailer Jessops. Take one of your special photos and turn it into an impressive piece of acrylic wall art, with Jessops printing your image using the brightest colours onto high quality photo paper before professionally mounting it to acrylic glass with a transparent plastic film. As light passes through the side of the acrylic it illuminates your image, giving it amazing depth and colour brilliance, creating a truly romantic personalised gift that will look great on any wall. For more details on this or other Jessops products see their website.

To enter your shots simply use the form below, or email us at with the title ‘Macro Competition’. Closing date will be Monday 19th March, 9.30am. Good luck!
