Following on from last year’s L4G South West Herts photo competition run in conjunction with Watford Women’s Centre and the Best of Watford, L4G are going to run a national competition this summer. Last year we asked for photos of your favourite buildings.
We found many beautiful buildings, which we’d not always noticed before in the South West Herts area.
To encourage photographers to find natural beauty in urban areas, this year’s theme is Trees and Flowers in an urban setting and is open to anyone living in the United Kingdom.
We want full colour images of trees, shrubs and flowers in an urban setting. So start looking for all those beautiful buds and flowers in and around urban areas. The photos could come from public areas in and around shopping area, a residential or industrial street or a small park surrounded by buildings. We don’t want entries of flowers and trees from national parks or other rural areas of the country, such as farms etc. or on golf courses, zoo's/safari parks and other semi-rural areas.
The competition closes 31st October 2015. Starting at the end of May to the end of September at the end of each month a small prize will be given against a criteria set at the beginning of each month by this might include a prize for the highest number of entries, the best photo entered by someone over 60 or under 30 etc. The competition will be judged by professional photographer , and myself.
The monthly prize will be a £10.00 John Lewis voucher and the winner at the end of the competition will win a £50.00 John Lewis voucher. All prizes have been generously donated by
