Still time to enter photography competition
There is still time for keen photographers who love taking pictures of the New Forest National Park to enter an exciting competition with great prizes.
Martin O’Neill, Director of Information and Visitor Services for the New Forest National Park Authority, said: ‘Our annual photography competition with the Forestry Commission is getting more popular every year. We’ve already received a high calibre of photographs but we want to remind people there is still time to enter.
‘This year we want people to take pictures of what they love most about the New Forest and for them to capture their “dream” view. Autumn is a special time in the Forest so you might yet capture the winning view.
‘This can be of anything - it could be a picture from your “dream” day out or even your “dream” pub lunch!’
There are four categories and winners will receive photography vouchers of:
Best under 16
The winners and runners-up will have their work displayed at the New Forest Centre and their pictures may also be used to promote the New Forest National Park.
The ‘dream view’ is part of the ‘dream visit’ competition the National Park is running to encourage visitors and residents to shop local, visit local attractions and to leave their car at home.
