Get outdoors with Bracknell's new photography competition

 18th May 2011

Bracknell photography competitionIf you'd like to enter more photography competitions our photography videos and photography courses could help you capture the great outdoors in this year's Bracknell Forest Council’s Routes and Trees photography competition.

In a bid to celebrate the UN International Year of Forests 2011, the photography competition is calling all amateur snappers to take to the parks and countryside in and around Bracknell and capture some of its beauty on camera.

Bracknell Forest Council's Routes and Trees competition has been launched in conjunction with the new parks and countryside events leaflet, which highlights activities including pond dipping, rambling and glowworm hunting, in a bid to encourage people to make more of the great outdoors.

Richard Walton, head of parks and countryside, said, "We're really lucky to have some fantastic, easily accessible parks and countryside in Bracknell Forest. This is a chance for all keen photographers to show off their skills and capture the borough's beauty at the same time.

"We had more than 100 images entered last year in the biodiversity competition and it would be great to get event more this year," he added.

Images which focus on the interaction between wildlife in the local area and local people and places are encouraged.

Entries should be submitted before Friday, 30 September 2011 to park.photos@bracknell-forest.gov.uk
