MMG is launching a photographic competition encouraging amateur photographers, young and old, to capture images of flowers, insects, landscapes, or people enjoying our lovely meadows.
The aim is to celebrate the value and beauty of local meadows (including road verges, garden mini-meadows and other similar areas of wildflower-rich grasslands).
Anyone can enter by sending in digital pictures taken this year in Monmouthshire and the surrounding area, which reflect the value of meadows and the aims of MMG. The winning pictures will be chosen based on interest value rather than technical expertise, so everyone can take part whether you are using an expensive SLR camera or your mobile phone!
The competition will be judged in three age groups:
- 10 years and under
- 11 to 16 years
- Adult – 17 and over
Winners will receive a copy of their picture printed and framed, as well as a certificate. The pictures will be displayed on the MMG web site.
You can start sending in entries as soon as you like and we will display some of them on the web site to show examples of pictures as they are received.
