The Bokeh’s are our group’s photographic equivalent of the Baftas! These awards will be given to members on this group that YOU nominate!
Nominations will be publicly posted by members on a Facebook thread in the Facebook group, and you may nominate three members for each category. The five members that have the most nominations will then be entered in to a shortlist poll that members will again vote for.
There will be prizes for the winner of each category.
The voting will commence for the first category May 15th 2015, and will be open for 2 weeks until midnight on May 29th. Each category will be open for votes for two weeks.
The winners will be announced on December 1st 2015 and a small awards ceremony will take place at our Christmas meal on the 18th December 2015
