Local photographers are being invited to submit entries for the annual ‘Discover Ashfield’ photography competition with £100 vouchers (£50 Arc cinema and £50 high street vouchers) on offer for the winners.

Residents of all ages are invited to capture brilliant photos from across Ashfield. This year’s categories are: “What you love about Ashfield”, “Ashfield at Work” and a special category for “Under 16s” to enter. The competition opened on Monday 19 June and the closing date for entries is Friday 21 July.

What You Love About Ashfield – This could be anything you love in Ashfield from a local park, statue or monument or people across the District.

Ashfield at Work – Think of the many different work environments we have across Ashfield. For example, this could be an industrial setting, volunteering or for example working in a garden.  

Under 16s – Dedicated category for the under 16s where we would like to see photos of what you love about Ashfield, its people or the places you love to visit. We want to see how young people see the place they live.

A winner will be chosen for each category.

Entry is via the Council website at www.ashfield.gov.uk/photography-competition-2023

The Chair of Discover Ashfield, Martin Rigley, said: “The Discover Ashfield photography competition brings in some great images across Ashfield each and every year, that really showcase the great things our community do, we look forward to seeing what residents capture with this year’s category choices.”

Executive Lead for Leisure, Health and Wellbeing Chris Huskinson said: “It’s exciting the competition is back for its fifth year, building on the success of previous years. The photos from last year were amazing and captured some of the great things we have in Ashfield.”

“We want to encourage people to get out and discover new areas of the District they don’t know so well. We are looking forward to seeing the entries this year and we hope the new categories will inspire you to join in.”

Judging will take place after the closing date and the winners will be announced in the week beginning 14th August.
