The search to find the best photographs of parks and open spaces in Charnwood is on!

Charnwood Borough Council has launched a competition as part of the ‘Love the outdoors in Charnwood’ campaign to celebrate the borough’s fantastic range of country parks, nature reserves and ancient woodlands.

Residents of all ages are being invited to enter the competition by grabbing their cameras and capturing snaps at their favourite park or open space in Charnwood.

Cllr Jenny Bokor, the Council’s lead member for open spaces in Charnwood said: “This is a great opportunity for residents to show off their photography skills while exploring the outdoors.

“Our borough has a wide range of stunning landscapes and ancient woodland filled with wildlife so there are plenty of opportunities to capture a photo or two.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing the entries and who knows you could be one of our winners!”

Entries need to be of recent photos taken in the last six months and there are three different categories for people to enter:

  • Open category (age 16 and above)
  • Young photographer (under 16s)
  • Wonderful wildlife (open to all ages)

There will be Love Loughborough vouchers up for grabs for the winner and two runners-up in each category. The winners will receive a £50 voucher and a £25 voucher will be awarded to each runner-up.

Entries close at 5pm on Monday September 19, 2022 and winners will be contacted directly.
