Battle Proms Photography Competition

Each year we encourage our audience to pack a camera with their picnic and try to capture the magic of the Battle Proms. Over the years we've had some phenomenal entries to our photo competitions, each winning tickets to the following year's concert and a Battle Proms T-shirt.

Anyone attending a Battle Proms picnic concert is invited to enter the competition, whether you come armed with multiple lenses and years of experience or just think you've captured a spectactular moment on your camera phone! Entry is via our Facebook page and Twitter feed and full details of how to enter will be made available on the night via the big screen and the concert programme.
