Entries for the annual Discover Ashfield photography competition are open from Monday 19th June to Friday 21st July.
This year’s brief is to photograph what you love about Ashfield and people working in the District. For the under 16s category the theme is how young people see the area they live in and the spaces they use, or it could be a person who inspires them in their work.
The winner of each category will receive a £50 Arc Cinema Voucher and a £50 High Street Voucher.
The three categories are:
What You Love About Ashfield – This could be anything you love in Ashfield from a local park, statue or monument or people across the District.
Ashfield at Work – Think of the many different work environments we have across Ashfield. For example, this could be an industrial setting, volunteering or for example working in a garden.
Under 16s – Dedicated category for the under 16s where we would like to see photos of what you love about Ashfield, its people or the places you love to visit. We want to see how young people see the place they live.
The Chair of Discover Ashfield, Martin Rigley, says:
“The Discover Ashfield photography competition brings in some great images across Ashfield each and every year, that really showcase the great things our community do, we look forward to seeing what residents capture with this year’s category choices”
Executive Lead Member for Leisure, Health and Wellbeing Chris Huskinson said
“It’s exciting the competition is back for its fifth year, building on the success of previous years. The photos from last year were amazing and captured some of the great things we have in Ashfield”
“We want to encourage people to get out and discover new areas of the District they don’t know so well. We are looking forward to seeing the entries this year and we hope the new categories will inspire you to join in”
Judging will take place after the closing date and the winners will be announced in the week beginning 7th August.
