Budding photographers are being asked to take snaps of the Ouse Washes for a competition ... with prizes up for grabs.
In the lead up to the summer OuseFest celebrations (July 20 - August 2), the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership have launched a Snap the Ouse Photography Competition.
The competition is open to any photographs that define the character of the Ouse Washes and surrounding areas, highlighting its landscapes, wildlife, people, buildings or water.
Sara Marshall, countryside engagement and marketing officer at the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership, said: “We hope the Snap the Ouse Competition will be a fun opportunity for people to see their local environment through different eyes, discover new aspects not seen before and capture what their local area means to them.”
A shortlist of 12 photographs will be posted on the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership’s website for public voting and will also be exhibited at the OuseFest Fun Day on Saturday July 25 at Mepal Outdoor Centre.
There will be three winners, one from each entrance category (age 12 or under; 13–18; 19 or over), who will each receive a basket of prizes worth £50.
To participate, send your photographs taken in the Ouse Washes or surrounding area to email@example.com by Sunday May 31.
