Drovers’ Tryst Photo Competition 2019

Who can enter?

Anyone who takes part in any of the Drovers’ Tryst activities during the Festival.

What is the idea?

We want any pictures taken whilst on any of the Tryst activities – there are no categories – just good pictures! You can take it with a camera, phone or iPad.

How do I enter?

Entry is by email to Keith Ratcliffe at

Give each of your pictures a Title – you can submit up to 6 pictures in total. Don’t forget to include your Name in the email.

Are there any technical things I need to know?

The pictures can be either as taken or edited by you later and must be saved as either JPEG or TIFF format, in as high quality as possible. They are going on to The Drover’s Tryst web page so they may be reduced in size but Keith will sort that out for you.

Can I see my pictures on the Internet?

They will go into a Gallery on the Drovers’ Tryst website for everyone to see, and will be judged by a panel of judges. They will also be shown on the Tryst Facebook page which is accessible via a link from the main Tryst website.

What can I win?

The overall winner will receive a Photo Tutorial with Keith Ratcliffe, on a day of their choice.  Part of the day will be spent outdoors taking pictures followed by an indoor session covering a range of photo techniques tailored to the winner’s needs.   The winning picture will be printed, framed and displayed at the Crieff Visitor Centre during the next Drovers’ Tryst.  A selection from all of the pictures submitted will also be displayed alongside the winner.

When must I submit?

The closing date for entries is Friday November 8th 2019.  There will then be a period of two weeks for the judges to decide on the winner.  Results will be announced a short time afterwards.

How can I get help?

If you have any questions or need assistance with getting your pictures to us then please get in touch with Keith Ratcliffe at but please note that as he is a judge he cannot advise on content or suitability but will do his best in helping you to get your pictures submitted.


So please – whatever event you take part in, take some pictures and send them in!
