Photo Competition - Scenes of WF3
Some of the photos we have been sent so far
There aren't many good things to come out of a nationwide lockdown, but one thing that we have all realised is how fortunate we are to live in such a beautiful area!
We're looking for people to capture the scenes of WF3 and help us create a calendar of the amazing sights that we have become so familiar with on our daily walks. How good would it be to have your photo produced into a calendar which will benefit people from across our community.
What are we doing?
We missed the boat to create a calendar for 2021 but we are planning to produce a calendar of the beautiful scenes from across WF3 for 2022.
We will sell copies of the calendar to raise vital funds to help us support more community projects and initiatives.
Why are we doing this?
We have seen lots of amazing pictures over the last 12 months of the area which we have all become more familiar of during the lockdown days of 2020-2021. We are lucky to be surrounded by some great spaces and landmarks and we want to capture these moments in time and share them with as many people as possible and raise some vital funds at the same time.
What do you need to do?
When you're ready to leave the house and check that you've got your keys, purse/wallet and face mask (welcome to the 2020's) add your camera or smartphone to your list of 'essential items'.
Then, whilst out and about around WF3, capture those images of Tingley, Ardsley and Thorpe, such as the blanket of glistening snow, the sun kissed shots of Thorpe village, the sunrise or sunset at Ardsley Reservoir, or maybe the colourful floral display outside The Hare & Hounds... the possibilities are endless!
Find the perfect spot, take the photo and send it to us, make sure you tell us where and when (approximately is fine) the picture was taken and provide your contact details.
What's the prize?
The chance to have your photo printed and included in our community calendar for 2022 and sold within the community. Imagine how cool it would be to have your photo printed in an actual calendar hanging in the homes of people across our community!
What happens next?
Once we receive your picture we will keep it safe until the closing date (Monday 4th October at noon), we will then shortlist some of the pictures and hold a vote on our website and social media pages to see what the locals think. On Tuesday 12th October votes will close.
Pictures will be selected and our printers will get to work to produce the calendars in plenty of time for you to buy as Christmas gifts!
YOU must be the owner of the photo (ie. you took the photo) or sent by you with the owners permission;
The photo should be from within the local area- Tingley, Ardsley and Thorpe. We could stretch a little further a field but do state where it was taken when you send it in;
You can use photos taken previously - have you got some from Christmas? maybe Santa doing his rounds??;
Photos should not be of people- capture the area, the amazing green spaces, the local landmarks, the popular drinking holes, the historic monuments (pets and animals are fine, they love their picture being taken!);
Anyone is eligible to have taken the picture - get the kids involved;
Animals & Pets can be included in the photo - the dog racing through the local fields, the lambs of Baghill or the horse grazing near your favourite local trek.
Entry is FREE;
Send us your photo with a brief description, including the location and date that it was taken (estimated is fine)- remember to include your contact details;
Entries close at 12 midday on 1st October 2021.
