Photographers' tree snaps on display

Stuart Shafran with winning entry

Last Saturday marked the official launch of an exhibition at South Hill Park, which celebrates ‘Our Wonderful Trees’ in Bracknell Forest.

Amateur photographers and their families excitedly gathered in the Long Gallery at the Art’s Centre, to view their pictures, which comprised the winning and commended entries from last year’s Parks Photographic Competition.

Last year was the 9th year that Bracknell Forest Council has run the free to enter popular competition, with support from South Hill Park Art’s Centre.

Andrew Hunter chief officer for planning, transport and countryside said:

Last year the ‘tree theme’ clearly captured people’s imagination, with record number of entries submitted to our competition. This made it tough for our judges to choose the best entries to go on display.

In this year’s competition, we’re looking for people to share with us images of their favourite greenspaces in the borough. This is a chance for all amateur photographers to show off their skill and to get out, explore and celebrate the wealth of green spaces and wildlife we have in the borough.

The exhibition runs until Sunday 11 June. Entries for the 2017 competition can be sent by:

Please include a short caption that best describes the image and provide your contact details. Unfortunately Bracknell Forest Council will be unable to return any prints you send in.

The closing date for entries is 5pm on Tuesday 31 October 2017. 

Full terms and conditions are available on our parks and countryside events page.
