"Bracknell Forest’s mood-boosting places"

We’ve chosen this year’s theme to reflect the abundance of amazing local places, which make Bracknell Forest a special place in which to live, work and play.

We want you to share with us places that make you feel great or help to lift your mood when you’re feeling down.

The best entries will win a share of the £225 total prize fund, courtesy of our competition sponsors.

We’d love to see photos of your mood-boosting places. Please send your entries to

The deadline for entries is Monday 31 October 2022.

Ideas to get you started

To give you some inspiration, we’ve shared some of our favourite mood boosting places.

Leisure and culture

Residents can enjoy some excellent leisure and culture venues, with shopping, dining and events galore at The Lexicon and fun for all the family at The Look Out Discovery Centre. If arts and culture is just the thing to brighten your mood, look no further than South Hill Park Arts Centre, the creative heart of the borough.


We are fortunate to have access to amazing parks and natural spaces, many of which are right on our doorsteps! There are wide-open spaces, such as Cabbage Hill in Warfield, or small urban parks such as Snaprails in Sandhurst. Greenspaces, particularly when they are in an urban setting, are the green lungs of our borough, replenishing the air with oxygen and helping improve our health and wellbeing.


Mood boosting places may feature people. You must get permission from anyone featured in your images who is identifiable. Please do this by completing our photo permission form. Your entry must also meet the requirements of our competition terms and conditions.
