Read on if you have a few interesting and creative ideas about how to wear a scarf and can come up with some original poses and settings for this fun photography competition.
Today I am launching a photo competition, open to anyone involved with
my gorgeous and sensual, originally designed and hand made, pure silk scarves.
You may have purchased one (or more) or been given one by a friend or relative. Perhaps you have a friend who likes modelling in front of a camera and would enjoy posing for you? Or a friend may like to photograph you in action?
Perhaps you are about to become the proud owner of one or two new scarves? They are designed and made in Australia using top quality pure silk, printers and sewers - nothing but the best for you! With care they will last a very long time (perhaps becoming a family heirloom?).
Your involvement with the scarves may even be
limited to borrowing one! Perfectly acceptable!

Please use the form, below, to tell me that you would like to enter this 'How to Wear a Scarf' photography competition.
Images need to be emailed to the address, which will be sent to you after I receive your expression of interest (via the form, below). Except for digitally enhanced images they should be approximately 1mb in size and in the proportion of 2 x 3, approximately, either horizontal or vertical formats.
The size is in case I decide to use your images for reproduction in print media. I reserve the right to publicise the competition (and your brilliance!) by using photographs submitted, at which time you, as the photographer, will be credited.
Selected entries will be published on this site - here's hoping for a deluge! You are also welcome to tell us something of the fun that you had making the photos. I imagine that would make it even more interesting to readers. What do you think?
Good wishes for unleashing your creativity - and for winning those prizes!

A casual look, which feels so soft and luxurious - a great way to add a touch of colour.
