OPEN SPACES SOCIETY
OPEN SPACES SOCIETY CELEBRATES 150TH ANNIVERSARY WITH PHOTO COMPETITION
The Open Spaces Society,(1) Britain’s oldest national conservation body which celebrates its 150th anniversary this year, has launched a photo competition to celebrate its birthday.
The categories are: commons, greens, paths, enjoyment, landscapes, historic and open (a subject of your choice). As the society’s remit extends to England and Wales it asks that all photos are taken in these two countries. The closing date is 30 September 2015 allowing plenty of opportunity of photographs through the seasons.
Says Chris Beney, a trustee of the society: ‘We want people to think about what open spaces mean to them—freedom, views, enjoyment, coast, family, play, in fact anything they love or which inspires them. Even historic photographs from grandfather’s collection will be welcome.’
Entry is free and people can enter as many times as they like, in as many categories as they like.
The society will award prizes in all categories as well as a prize for the overall winner. It will also award prizes for highly-commended submissions. Individual prizes will be up to £100 in value.
