Bracknell Forest photo competition

2020 competition is closed

Thank you for all your entries into the 2020 photo competition. It is now closed for entries.

Judging is due to take place in November. The winners will be announced soon after.

2020 theme

This year, we asked amateur photographers to send us their photos of how they are:

‘staying safe and inspired’ in Bracknell Forest borough

It has been a very tough year for many because of the coronavirus pandemic. We’re hoping that taking part in our competition will engage residents in a creative project and paint a picture of how people are spending their leisure time.

The competition, which is being sponsored by ESDP, Duncan Yeardley Estate Agents and Bracknell Camera Club, has an emphasis on time spent on the following:

  • leisure time at home, for example in the garden
  • home working arrangements
  • out for your daily exercise

It also celebrates that it’s the Year of the Garden in 2020 and we look forward to seeing lots of photos of your gardens, window boxes and local wildlife!

Images that demonstrate that the photographer has given some thought to the competition theme ‘Stay safe and inspired' will be marked more highly.

Last year

The winning entries of last year’s Bracknell Forest photo competition, which celebrates what inspires people about living and working in the borough.

The theme was ‘Inspirational Bracknell Forest’.

The key question was:

"What inspires you about living in the borough?"

Adult category winner

Graham Butcher - wasp

The winner of the adult category was Graham Butcher, for his stunning photo of a wasp on a yellow flower at Savernake Park. 

Graham, who lives in Surrey, is a regular visitor to the borough and enjoys capturing the nature and wildlife that inspires him and his photography.

Under 18s winner

Crowthorne resident, 15 year old Finley Saunders, was inspired to capture a self-portrait of himself mountain biking in Swinley Forest.
