The Broads Authority will be celebrating its 30th birthday in 2019 and is launching the Broads National Park Photography Competition in preparation for the big event. An anniversary photo exhibition held at the Forum in Norwich will feature the winning photographers from the competition.
The brief for photographers is ‘the uniqueness and beauty of the Broads National Park’ and can be interpreted however the entrant would like. The winning photos will sit alongside images belonging to the Broads Authority that date from the early days of the organisation, many of which were taken by highly regarded photographer, the late Richard Denyer.
There are two categories available, young person (17 years and under) who could be in with a chance of winning £100 and adult (18 years and over) with a prize of £250. For both categories there is also the chance to exhibit in the 30th anniversary exhibition.
The competition will be judged by photographer Julian Claxton whose work has regularly featured in Broads Authority publications.
Broads Authority Design and Information Supervisor, Karen Sayer said of the competition,
“This a great opportunity for the public to show the Broads Authority what the Broads National Park means to them. We don’t mind if it’s boating, bitterns or big skies, it’s all about the way that you see the area and what that means to you. This is a rare opportunity to have your work hung as part of a professional body of work.”
Photos can be entered in either black and white or colour but must be submitted as a high quality digital jpeg. Each entrant can submit up to five photographs. Entries can be submitted from 1 April 2018 to the closing date at midnight on 31 October 2018. The winning photos will be exhibited in The Forum in Norwich from Friday 29 March to Tuesday 2 April 2019. For full details of how to enter go to www.broads-authority.gov.uk/photocomp
