Breaking with their tradition of running photographic competitions over the winter, the Friends of Broomfield Park have announced that this year the competition will take place during the summer.

Prizes will be awarded in two categories:  Adults and Under 16s.  You can enter up to three pictures, which must be taken "of the Park or in the Park" between 1st June and the closing date for entries, which is 22nd August.

All entries will be displayed on the Friends of Broomfield Park website and during September shortlisted photographs will be on show in Broomfield Conservatory.  Visitors to the Conservatory will be invited to vote for their favourites and the winners will be the photograph in each category with the highest number of public votes.

For full details visit www.friendsofbroomfieldpark.org/photocompetition.

The last competition was won by Steve Harrison, whose entry, "Winter Roost" is shown below.
