Please vote for me!!!
Ordnance Survey, the UK’s mapping agency, is looking for photos to put on the front of their hundreds of paper maps, in a competition they’ve called Photofit, and as a passionate geographer and photographer, I feel the opportunity is too good to pass up. So, I have submitted 12 of my photos (so far) in the hope that they might use one/some of them. They’ll be entered for either the competition to be on the cover of the Explorer Maps (1:25,000 scale, the orange ones*), which ends on the 19th April 2015, or to be on the cover of the Landranger Maps (1:50,000 scale, the pink ones), which ends on 31st October 2015.
To be considered, I need people to vote for them, and it is the photos with the highest votes for each area that will be put forward for judging. The main prize is the prestige of having my photos on a published map, available to all, but I would also get my own personal copy of the finished product. I would be hugely grateful if you would consider voting any/all of my pictures!
Anyway, here are the photos I’ve submitted; if you like any of them, please follow the links to get to the page where you get to vote (sorry, you have to vote for each one individually), thank you so much:
Thanks for taking the time to look, I’ll let you know how I get on.
*except for the Outdoor Leisure Maps, covering the National Parks and similar, which have already been chosen. Most of these pictures are in the OL Map areas, so I guess a lot of them could end up on the Landrangers….
