EYE ON STREATHAM PHOTOGRAPHY
Eye on Streatham will be holding a competition asking for entries in the following categories: Summer in Lockdown; Funtime in Lockdown – Pets, Family, Portraits; Nature in Streatham; Streatham is Open. We’ll also split submissions / winners into under and over 16 year old photographers. There will be prizes for category winners and we look to hang these in local venues.
