A final reminder of the Rotary Competition Guidelines for the Young Photographer competition, submissions need to be in by the end of next week. 
The task is to produce a portfolio of three photographs based upon the theme, ‘Through My Eyes’ in colour or black and white on photographic paper. The prints must be submitted individually. Each print, including any mount should be no larger than A4 size. Mobile Phones may be used in addition to cameras.

District competition winners, additionally, will be required to provide a digital copy in jpg format and ideally 5MB for an A4 sized print, on disc (CD-R) or memory stick, as part of the national final submission. Please ensure every photograph, disc or memory stick submitted is clearly labelled with the name of the entrant.
To accompany the portfolio, each entrant must provide a brief sentence describing the relationship of each photograph to the theme.
Please Note: Photographs which incorporate images of people under 18 years old must be accompanied by
written permission from the parent, guardian, or carer.

We have been requested to share some of the information and tips we give young people to stay safe when using their mobile phones. Here is a snippet of some of the great advice available to help our young people stay safe.

MOBILE PHONE SAFETY TIPS

Mobile phones are a great way to keep in touch with your friends. But if someone you don’t know gets in touch with you, or you’re being bullied through your phone, you should tell someone who can help.

Try these mobile safety tips:

  • Keep your phone out of sight
    If you’re worried about someone taking it, keep it hidden from sight
  • Be careful with your number
    Only give it to your friends and people that you trust
  • Don’t lend your phone to someone you don’t know
    Or put it in a place where other people could get hold of it
  • Use a PIN
    Most phones allow you to lock your phone with a PIN code. If you don’t have the code you can’t unlock it, so if anyone steals your phone they won’t be able to use it
  • Don’t be pressured to give your number out
    If someone is pressuring you into giving them your number, tell someone about it such as a teacher or a parent
  • Switch your Bluetooth off
    If you have Bluetooth on your phone, keep it switched off when you are not using it.
  • Don’t accept friend requests from people you do not know
  • Block anyone that you do not wish to be able to contact you
