The Parks Trust charity that care for over 6,000 acres of parkland across Milton Keynes have announced their annual Photography Competition has launched.

The contest offers all keen amateur photographers the chance to showcase their photography skills and potentially win some fantastic prizes.

The photography competition, which will be running from Thursday 29th July to Sunday 29th August 2021 aims to highlight the beautiful and diverse landscapes and wildlife of Milton Keynes.

Potential entrants are being asked by The Parks Trust to capture images within the 6,000 acres of green space across the city which includes parkland, river valleys and lakes.

There will be three lucky winners selected for this year’s competition who will win a photography tuition session with local professional photographer Gill Prince to help them improve their skills. The first prize winner will receive a 4-hour tuition session with Gill, second prize is a 3-hour session and third is a 2-hour session.

The winner’s sessions can be tailored to suit individual levels of experience and can cover any aspects of photography and/or editing that you would like.

Emma Thompson, PR & Marketing Manager for The Parks Trust said, ‘Last year we ran our photography competition over the lockdown, when many people were using our parkland and greenspace and we saw a huge number of entrants. As people have continued to seek the benefits of greenspace over the last 12 months and have discovered new areas right on their doorsteps, we’re excited to see the photographs entered into this year’s competition’.

Photos submitted in this competition also have the chance of featuring on The Parks Trust’s social media channels, websites, calendar and on signage across the parks. All entries must be received by the closing date of Sunday 29th August 2021. Please ensure you read and agree to the terms and conditions prior to entering.
