Photograph the Paranormal

Paranormal Review Photography Competition

Shoot the Next Cover
and Win a Camera from Olympus

How to capture the paranormal? We have all seen photographs, from the Brown Lady of Raynham Hall to orbs, that claim to show evidence of a spirit world. But no matter how compelling the image, no photograph has convinced the earthly world that anything exists beyond it. Could it ever?

To Capture the ‘Spirit’ of the Paranormal

The focus of the competition is on photography rather than evidentiality. It is not about proving the paranormal, but about ways to represent the idea of the paranormal. This covers many different genres of photography, such as documentary, visual art and even travel, for example. Subjects could include paranormal investigations, parapsychology experiments, people involved with the paranormal, or places associated with the paranormal. The judges will be looking for a strong image that best conveys the ‘spirit’ of the paranormal.

The prize: an Olympus Tough TG-Tracker digital camera, plus the chance to see your photograph on the cover of the Paranormal Review, the magazine of the Society for Psychical Research (est. 1882).
