Still time to get snappy

Published Tuesday 29 September 2009

There is still time for local people and visitors to win great prizes in this year’s New Forest photo competition celebrating 60 years of National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

To take part all you need to do is take a picture that shows your ‘iconic’ New Forest.

For the first time a ‘mobile phone’ category has also been included, so you can now take pictures on the go.

Martin O’Neill, Director of Information and Visitor Services at the New Forest National Park Authority, said: ‘We want as many people as possible to take part in the competition.  There are fantastic prizes on offer and the winners and runners-up will see their pictures on display at the New Forest Centre.’

This year’s categories and prizes in photography vouchers are:

  • Overall outstanding picture £500
  • Best picture over 16s £250
  • Best mobile phone picture £150
  • Best picture under 16s £100

So whether you are a fan of the famous New Forest pony or enjoy the woods, heaths or salt marshes of the National Park we want your photographs.

Photographs should be no bigger than 5mb and mobile phone photographs need to be over 1mb.

Closing date for the competition is Monday 16 November 2009.
