I am an aim and shoot kind of photographer in my family. My daughter and husband are the fancy shutterbugs who know how to use their D-SLR cameras. I just rely on my dependable iPhone camera to provide me the snaps I need for my blog posts. But, Urban Cottage Industries may give me a chance to improve my photography skills with their Let There Be Light Blogger Photography competition!

Since buying the accessories for a good camera is a hefty undertaking, winning this competition will surely help in acquiring them.

The #LetThereBeLight Blogger Photography Competition is from the generous Urban Cottage Industries and they are giving away £500 worth of vouchers of photography equipment from Amazon. That is one hefty price to be given to the lucky winner.  5 Runner ups will also get a price which is a nice personalized Moleskine Notebook.

Joining is simple but you do need to have your own blog.

Read the mechanics below and the full T&C here.


To enter the competition, publish your “Let There Be Light” blog post on your own blog containing two images – one showcasing natural light and one showcasing artificial light – including a follow link to http://www.urbancottageindustries.com/.

I am sure you will have plenty of photos to select from because of the recent holidays. Those will surely yield colorful, vivid, photos worthy to showcase in this fabulous competition. Of course, you can choose whatever photos you like as long as you follow the requirements.

All entries must be made via a blog post and submitted by 31 Jan. 2018.

Entrants via social media must tag @urbancottageind and use #LetThereBeLight in their post when linking to their blog post.

Once you are done with your blog post, notify them via email (urbancottageindustries@yoma.co.uk) and your email must must include a link to your post, your name, and email address.

Don’t forget to read the full terms and conditions I have included above before the mechanics so you’ll never go wrong.


And here is my entry for the competition.

For the natural light, I used this photo taken during our family outing last 29 December in Dubai Parks and Resort. I feel the view in the Riverland area is so calm and captures the natural sunlight we get in this part of the world year-long.



For the artificial light, I am submitting this very Christmas-y water fountain with green hue in the same park before we headed home. It changed to several colors like blue, red, and this green which were all reminiscent of a fun Christmas. And not to mention, those Christmas lights hanging on the trees at the background made this photo more magical!



Good luck!
