For the last nine years the municipal authority at Azuqueca de Henares near Madrid has been running a beekeeping photography competition. It’s open to anyone in the World, and is free to enter. They tend to be more keen on pictures with beekeepers in them than close-ups of bees – this year’s rules state ‘Special preference will be given to photographs emphasising humanity’s relationship with bees’. Here’s last year’s winning picture. Click here to check out the website. Entries close on the 30th April. Your chairperson has entered a few times over the years and not won yet, but in the past, selected participants have received a book of photographs entered.
It’s well worth having a go. Good luck!
