Background to the project

At the start of 2020 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, were invited to send their best photographs taken in the Park for the month of entry to be considered. Photos could 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 end of the year the winning entries were collated to create a Nene Park calendar, which was available to purchase from the Visitor Centre and Gift shop in aid of the work of Nene Park Trust. The winning and best entries from each month were also displayed in a photography competition in the heart of Ferry Meadows.

Please enjoy the winning entries displayed below.
