At the start of the year Nene Park announced a photography competition, set to run for the duration of 2020, with a new winner crowned each month.

All visitors, both young and old, are invited to send their best photographs taken in the Park for the month of entry to be considered. Photos are to be from any part of Nene Park - Ferry Meadows, Thorpe Meadows, Orton Mere, Woodston Reach or the Rural Estate and could feature anything that catches the photographers' eye and shows off what a wonderful greenspace we all have to enjoy in Peterborough with our abundant wildlife, beautiful trees, historic landmarks, activities on the lakes and people enjoying the Park.

At the beginning of each month the chosen ‘Photo of the Month’ is announced and the competition for the next month is launched. At the end of the year the winning entries will be collated to create a Nene Park calendar, which will show off these beautiful photos and be available to purchase from the Visitor Centre and Gift shop in aid of the work of Nene Park Trust.

Please enjoy the winning entries so far displayed below and keep an eye our social media to be the first to find out when our 2021 calendar is available to buy!
