Congratulations to Andy King for having taken the most popular Park photo in the competition! We had fifty-two entries, that’s fifty-two different and imaginative ways of looking at Shrewsbury Park. Thank you everyone who entered, and everyone who voted at the Summer Festival.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
FSP Members have always taken superb photos of their favourite seasons and views of the Park. While you can see those in the current 2016 calendar here, the following were included in 2014 and 2015 editions:
Who’s in charge? – Michelle Smith That’s the caption for the cheery robin above who was the overall winner of our summer photographic competition, resulting in the 2016 FSP Calendar. Photos were taken by members, then displayed and voted on by all-comers at the Summer Festival 28 June 2015. The other twelve most popular entries follow below.
Unfortunately the calendars sold out quickly, at £5 each, which did give the Park drinking fountain fund a healthy boost.
Thank you to everyone who participated. Get out there NOW and start capturing all the seasonal wonders of the Park for entry into the 2016 competition!
