Pro Loco Photography Competition 2011

There will be overall winners in the categories of Adult (over 16), Young Photographer (11-16) and Junior (10 and under). There will be a special prize for the best photograph submitted by a resident. As well as these groups, there will be prizes awarded for photographs of specific places or events. This year we have increased the prize money and more prizes due to the generosity of our sponsors. Each person can enter up to 4 photographs and from all the entries, a list of finalists will be drawn up by the Organising Committee. These photographs will then be displayed in the Pavilion on Saturday 15th October for members of the public to judge and their voting will decide the winners.

So get snapping – the Parades, Derwent Gardens, Lovers Walk, the quiet byways of the village, your garden, a family activity in the village, wildlife, mining museum, Masson Mills, Heights of Abraham in either the Spring, Summer or wait until the autumn for the fireworks at the illuminations - the possibilities are endless. What about a picture of the Royal Wedding Street Party!
