Amateur photographers are being encouraged to take some snaps of local landscapes as part of The Parks Trust's annual photography competition.
The Parks Trust cares for over 6,000 acres of parkland across the city. And each year, the self-financing charity launches a photography competition to highlight the diverse landscapes and wildlife that live in the local parks and greenspaces.
This year's competition will be running from Thursday 29th July to Sunday 29th August 2021.
The Parks Trust is asking people to capture images within the 6,000 acres of green space that they manage across the city which includes parkland, river valleys, and lakes. You can find out more about their parks here.
Emma Thompson, PR & Marketing Manager for The Parks Trust, said: "Last year we ran our photography competition over the lockdown, when many people were using our parkland and greenspace and we saw a huge number of entrants.
"As people have continued to seek the benefits of green space over the last 12 months and have discovered new areas right on their doorsteps, we’re excited to see the photographs entered into this year’s competition."
There will be winners selected for this year’s competition who will win a photography tuition session with local professional photographer Gill Prince to help them improve their skills.
The first prize winner will receive a 4-hour tuition session with Gill, the second prize is a 3-hour session and the third is a 2-hour session. The sessions can be tailored to suit your individual level of experience and can cover any aspects of photography and/or editing that you would like.
You can find out more about her workshops which take place in parks across the city here.
Photos submitted in this competition also have the chance of featuring on The Parks Trust’s social media channels, websites, calendars, and signage across the parks.
All entries must be received by the closing date of Sunday 29th August 2021. Please ensure you read and agree to the terms and conditions prior to entering.
