They're trying to promote breastfeeding alot here, and they're running a competition for nursing pictures! (brilliant isn't it!!?)
i'm having a hard time as the breif is specific and at the same time not enough! its even more difficult as i can't even read it myself as its in gallego.
they want breastfeeding pictures... but they're kind of vague but they say they want everyday ones ... so now i'm stuck! many of mine are close ups.
we had a go at some in the bath earlier and i got this one which i just love.. but i dont think its 'in the bath' enough but i might enter it anyway... i've got one more close up, then tomorrow we're going to try by the beach with the sunset.(i need three)

the prizes are good but also we'll get to be in an exhibition of breastfeeding pictures.. i'm really excited for that but also stressed because i don't want to be odd if everyone else has nonclose ups if that makes sense...
anyway just wanted to share!!
ETA its my 18th month milestone breastfeeding on the 8th!!

Ok,It was in castellano,so here you go :

The rules:
1:Every photo must be the original copy and they must be images of nursing situations in every day life (meaning it can be in the tub,on the beach etc.Just as long as its something you often do kwim? It doesnt say anything about not being able to use simple photoshopping to add brightness etc.Im sure thats fine.)

2:Every photo must be 20x25cm,in black & white or colour,with a maximum of 3 per person.If possible,we preffere JPEG/JPG format on a CD or DVD.
Send your pictures to.... (I´ll PM you the address if you dont already have it)

3:They need all your data:
*Your complete name
*Your NIE/passport number
*Address
*Telephone number
*E-mail address
*The name of both the mother and child in the picture
*A signed authorization telling them you understand the base of the competition and that they can publish your pictures to promote BFing outside the competition.

4:Any photos received before the 20th of May will NOT be used.

5:No direct family members will be able to vote.

6:There will be an exposition showing ALL of the pictures in the “Teatro Coliseo

7:The judges are a a pediatric nurse,the midwife of Noia,a member of the city hall,a profesional photographer,a member of the FEDEGALMA,and the director of the general health center.

8:The prizes will be given after a talk about breastfeeding which will be celebrated in the same place as the exposition on the 13th of June.If you win,you will be informed previously.

9:The judges choice will be final.

10:You will NOT get your photos back.They will be kept and used to promote breast feeding else where by FEDEGALMA (posters,ads etc)


The first prize is 1000€ (best photo)

I think that by the original copy,they mean not to tamper with the picture,like no photoshopping kwim? Some people like to fiddle with eye colour,remove imperfections,enhance colours etc..I think thats what they mean.Although Im sure adding some brightness would be fine.
They say that they prefer for you to send your pictures on a cd or dvd in a JPEG/JPG format,and being as they didnt supply an e-mail address in the spanish version of the rules,Im guessing that its because they´d rather receive their pics via snail mail?
You can start sending them out after May 20th I really hope you win!!! The first pic you showed us is really beautiful and its deffinately an every day nursing pic Your daughter is beautiful

Keep us posted on how it goes! If you end up on the cover of "mi bebe y yo" I am SO gonna buy that months magazine!!
