Duffield Photography Competition open

Duffield Photography Competition open

Posted: Wed, 16 Dec 2020 10:55 by Jackie Clements

Duffield Parish Council is launching a photography competition to showcase "The spirit of Duffield" over the last 12 months.

Open to anyone who lives, works or goes to any of the three schools in the parish of Duffield, we're looking for your photos of Duffield that sum up the year: its people, community, buildings and landmarks, green spaces or natural environment; images that bring to life the community spirit in the village over lockdown, family activities, Christmas displays, the weather or the changing seasons. More »

You don't have to have a fancy camera – photographs taken with a smartphone or pocket camera are fine – and we hope to inspire people to get out there and explore the village during the winter as pictures from anytime in the year 2020 can be entered, taken up to the closing date of February 28th, 2021. Up to 5 photos can be entered.

Judging the competition will be local photographer and creator of the annual Duffield village calendar, Ashley Franklin, alongside Parish Councillors Yvonne Greenwood and Jim Grieveson. Yvonne is lead Councillor on the Community & Cultures theme of the Village Action Plan and Jim is a member of the C&C working group.

Prizes:

There will be a winner in three separate age group categories with a £100 prize fund, and several 'Highly Commended' certificates will be awarded in each category.

Of the three age categories, one winning image overall will be published in Ashley Franklin's Duffield Calendar 2022 with the possibility of other winners also being featured.

A display of winning photos will be put together in the spring, on the Parish Council's website and social media pages and in the Duffield Scene.

Anyone who lives, works or goes to any of the three schools in the parish of Duffield is eligible to enter the competition.
