Dying Matters photography competition extended after late surge in entries

20 December 2016
Dying Matters has extended the deadline for entries to its photography competition after website issues prevented some people from submitting their images successfully. Entries were due to close Sunday 18th December, but this has now been extended to Monday 9th January 2017.

The competition is entitled “Celebrating Life in the Face of Death” and is open to professional and amateur photographers across the UK. Entries will be judged by, Rankin: Lisa Pritchard: Louis Quail: Dr Tammy Angel: Jane Harris, Jane Bywater and Adam Golightly.

Miranda Ryan from Dying Matters said “we’ve had a fantastic response with lots of stunning and heartfelt entries. Unfortunately, we’ve also had feedback that some people encountered problems with the online application. We have now resolved this, but think it’s only fair to allow more time for people to send in their entries, but we ask people to not leave it too late, as we can’t extend the closing date again.”

The winners will be invited to at a reception at the House of Lords on 22nd February 2017.
