Where did February go?
It’s flown by and somehow we didn’t announce the winner of the January round of our monthly photography competition. Sorry about that!
The theme was winter and there were some really spectacular entries. We saw images showing everything from Durdle Door in the snow to rain-soaked ducks. However, it was the subtle tones of the winning image that captivated us the most.
The winner is….

David wins a Samsung 256GB EVO Plus microSD memory card with SD adaptor worth £74.99. And at the end of the year, his image will be judged against the other winning entries to decide the overall winner of the title Camera Jabber Photographer of the Year.
The overall winner will receive a fantastic 500GB Samsung SSD T5 portable storage unit worth £121.
The Next Round
The theme for February is pets. That round finishes at midnight tonight, so you still have a few hours to enter. You can do so via Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. You just need to tag your images @camerajabber and #petjabber.
We’ll announce the theme for March at midnight tonight. And then in a few days, we’ll reveal the winner of the February round. We promise to be quicker this time!
About the prizes
The Samsung 256GB EVO Plus microSD card with SD adaptor is a UHS-I U3 Class 10 memory card, that is 4K compatible and can be used in cameras and other devices that accept either a microSD or an SD card. Backed by Samsung’s 4-proof protection these cards are ultra reliable and are water, temperature, X-ray and magnetic proof making them the perfect partner for an action cam like a GoPro Hero7 Black, a mirrorless camera like the Fujifilm X-E3 or a DSLR like the Nikon D3500 – and a host of others.
Measuring just 74 x 57.3 x 10.5 mm (3.0 x 2.3 x 0.4 in), the 500GB Portable Samsung T5 is an excellent storage device for photographers on the move. And thanks to V-NAND technology and a USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface it has fast transfer times so you don’t have to wait long for your images to copy across.
Samsung supplies the T5 with a USB Type-C to USB-C cable and a USB Type-C to USB-A cable so it can be used with a wide range of devices. It’s also compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Android*, so you can use it to back-up your data and photos from your PC, phone or laptop.
