Photography exhibition at New Forest Centre

Published Thursday 16 December 2010

Brighten up your January by taking a trip to the New Forest Centre, Lyndhurst to visit the free ‘Dream View’ photography exhibition - celebrating what people enjoy most about the New Forest.

The exhibition is part of a competition run by the New Forest National Park Authority and Forestry Commission during 2010.

Martin O’Neill, Director of Information and Visitor Services, said: ‘The standard of this year’s competition was exceptionally high. We had a large volume of entries and people have been really creative with their choice of images.

‘By exhibiting the winners and runners-up we hope to inspire more people to explore the New Forest and to take in its “special qualities”. Taking pictures enables you to stop and take in your surroundings. You might have visited a place many times before but stopping to take a picture might show you something new and interesting.

This year’s winners are:
1st prize Jason Chalk
2nd prize Colin Roberts
3rd prize Peter Power

Under 16s winner:
Chloe Hinton

This year’s winners won Jessops photography vouchers.

For the first time the New Forest National Park Authority will be selling exclusive canvases of the New Forest that are normally only available on their online shop Forest Store.

The exhibition starts on the 8 January and finishes on the 6 February 2011.
