Free landmark photography competition showcasing local photographers now open
As part of their mission to preserve and promote the region's fortified heritage sites, the partners of the interreg project "Walls and Gardens", which is jointly funded by Essex County Council (ECC), have organised a free-of-charge amateur photography competition, which is open from now until the 6th Jauary 2013 - please note that the competition deadline has been extended.
The photographic competition is free to enter and there will be prizes for the top 20 winners including, digital cameras and multi-media tablets offering a real chance to develop photography skills.
Budding photographers from across the region can showcase their visual flair by capturing the beauty of key landmarks within Essex using their own personal style of photography to present unique perspectives on this diverse region and its fortified heritage sites such as the ECC-run Jaywick Martello Tower.
For amateur photographers of all ages who are passionate about capturing history, architecture and their local surroundings, this competition provides the perfect platform for emerging talented local photographers.
County Councillor John Jowers, Cabinet Member for Libraries, Communities and Planning, said: "This is a wonderful opportunity for the residents of Essex to get involved in a free competition to showcase their talents and capture the historic beauty of this region's unique landscape.
"I would encourage all residents, young people and adults, living, working or studying in this unique area of the country to get out their cameras and go exploring."
