It hardly seems like 12 months since the last comp but it's time once again for the 'Be in my 2014 Calendar' Competition. Climbing:2014 will be the tenth calendar under the Keith Sharples Photography label and as with previous 'Be in my Calendar' competitions the winner will be chosen from the select band of UKC-followers and will plug straight into the spot-light on the UKClimbing page in Climbing:2014...
The five previous winners have been snapped making some great shapes on some of great routes in some great locations. Last year's winner, Becky Lounds, got involved with Pull my Daisy and German School Girl in the Llanberis slate quarries. Craig Bailey (2012) and Ally Smith (2010) both featured on the fine Llangollen area limestone crags whilst Liam Lonsdale (2011) and Rachael Crewe (2009) were captured at St Bees and Stoney Middleton respectively. Both Becky and Liam went front cover in their respective years too so it's all to play for. However, all starts with entering the comp as you've got to be in it to win it – as they say.
If you're not familiar with the competition, UKClimbing, alongside some of the biggest names in the UK climbing business, are sponsoring a page in my UK-centric climbing calendar, Climbing:2014, and I'm looking for a keen climber to be photographed in a special photo shoot for the UKC page.
The comp is as simple as it comes.
