Win £200 worth of vouchers for a Leicestershire photo!!
FINAL CALL FOR LEICESTERSHIRE SCENES
With the ‘Leicestershire Through a Lens’ photography competition entering its final stage, keen snappers from across the county are asked to submit their best shots of striking scenes.
The winners of the Autumn, Winter and Spring rounds of the popular contest have now been revealed, leaving just three remaining spaces in the special 2010 calendar.
The competition, launched by Bardon Aggregates, invites photographers of all ages to get creative and capture the very essence of life in Leicestershire on camera. Over five hundred entries have been received over the course of the previous rounds and now people are invited to get creative for the final phase.
Simon Taylor, Bardon Aggregates’ regional director said: “We have been incredibly impressed at the standard of the entries received and of the range of wonderful subjects photographed.
“We’re now appealing for photographs that represent Leicestershire in the Summer time, from blue skies and lush green fields through to ice cream vans and frisby in the park.
Budding photographers are welcome to enter as many of their images as they wish for a chance to win £200 worth of Jessops vouchers and to see their work included in the special 2010 calendar which will be distributed to schools to aid their fundraising. The deadline for entries is 30th September.
The judging panel, which is made up of Deputy Councillor Mr Roger Blackmore, Baroness Jennifer Gretton, the Mercury’s very own picture editor Jason Senior, and Bardon Aggregates’ Simon Taylor, will shortlist a number of entries from across the age categories, and the winners will be revealed at a very special presentation event in November.
