It’s time to get snapping for the FSP Photographic Competition, if you haven’t already. Get out in the Park and capture your images of the views, the trees, the creatures, the park users. We need them all for judging at the Summer Festival on 11 June and the winning results will feature in the FSP Calendar 2017. The overall winner gets the cover position. All proceeds from calendar sales go towards our Drinking Water Fountain Fund.
Send your photo files – jpegs please, with minimum resolution of 2 megapixels – to email@example.com with the words ‘photo comp’ as the subject. We will confirm receipt of photos and give information regarding display prints to be used for the Festival exhibition.
