‘Autumn’ Photography Competition

Autumn is perhaps the most vibrant and colourful of all seasons. The rich tones of foliage and the spectacular golden hours after sunrise and before sunset offer a host of opportunities for keen landscape photographers. Outdoor portraits can also look magnificent, especially when the light is soft and the shadows are longer. And it's this time of year when wildlife can present some spectacular opportunities as animals prepare themselves for winter, rummaging for food supplies.

Share your Autumn images through our Alpha Universe Instagram account and be in with a chance of winning some great prizes, including Sony’s latest and greatest gear. The contest entry will be valid from photos posted on Instagram between 8th October to 21st November 2021 and three winning images will be chosen by a panel of photographic experts.
