Leamington Editorial 31st Mar, 2023   0

BUDDING photographers are being invited to capture the wonders of Warwickshire’s waterways for a new competition.

Warwickshire County Council’s Warwickshire Waterways Photography Competition runs until April 27 and is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the wonders of Warwickshire’s waterways while enjoying the many benefits of spending time outdoors in nature.

Submissions are welcome from people of all ages, including experienced photographers and those who simply enjoy snapping pictures on their phones while out and about.

Participants are invited to capture the theme of ‘nature and wildlife’ in their best shots of Warwickshire’s canals and rivers.

There are two age groups – one for those over 16 and one for those aged 15 and under – and the winners from each will receive a £50 voucher for photography equipment from the Canal and River Trust.

Winning images will also be featured on WCC’s website and social media channels, providing participants with the perfect platform to share their passion for photography with a wider audience.

Rob Powell, Strategic Director for Resources at WCC, said: “We’re thrilled to launch this exciting photography competition, which celebrates the stunning wildlife, scenery and natural beauty of Warwickshire’s waterways. We encourage everyone to take part in this opportunity to enjoy and showcase all our waterways have to offer. Good luck to all participants, and we can’t wait to see your pictures.”
