    Tips and Hints

    1. Photos can be taken with any type of camera – phone or dedicated camera.
    2. The higher the resolution of your photo the better the display print will be but photos will not be judged on the technical specs of the phone or camera used.
    3. Photos can be in colour or black and white.
    4. The subject matter is not important, it’s what appeals to you that is important.
    5. Photos can be taken at any time of the day but avoid photographing into direct sunlight.
    6. Photos must be taken in East Boldon, West Boldon or Boldon Colliery.
