Your ‘dream’ view could win you a prize

Published Monday 19 April 2010

If you love exploring the New Forest with your camera, we have just the competition for you.

The New Forest National Park Authority and the Forestry Commission have once again teamed up to launch the 2010 photography competition. This year’s theme is your ‘dream’ view of the New Forest.

So next time you are out in the New Forest, whether you are walking your dog or having a family day out, make sure you take your camera with you.

Martin O’Neill, Director of Information and Visitor Services for the New Forest National Park Authority, said: ‘Last year’s competition was such a huge success and the standard of entries was high. We wanted to choose a theme that could be interpreted in many different ways and with the “dream” idea, we have found just that

‘We want people to take pictures of what they love most about this special place and for them to capture their “dream” view.

‘This can be of anything - it could be a picture from your “dream” day out or even your “dream” pub lunch!’

There are four categories and winners will receive photography vouchers of:

  • First prize £500
  • Second prize £250
  • Third prize £100
  • Best under 16 £150

There will also be a selection of prizes that include days out with Forestry Commission Rangers or Keepers.

The winners and runners-up will also have their work displayed at the New Forest Centre and venues around the New Forest throughout 2011. Their pictures may also be used to promote the New Forest National Park.

Closing date for the competition is Friday 22 October 2010.

The ‘dream view’ is part of the ‘dream visit’ competition the National Park is running to encourage visitors and residents to shop local, visit local attractions and to leave their car at home.
