Background to the project

Following the unprecedented success of the monthly photography competitions run in 2020, Nene Park is excited to announce the launch of a new competition for 2021.  

This year the monthly competitions will take on a new twist!  Each month will have a different theme, encouraging budding and experienced photographers to think outside the box, search for seasonal nature and wildlife and visit the different areas of our beautiful Park. 

 At the beginning of each month, we will announce the new theme and share the winner from the previous month.  This year, each lucky winner will receive a £20 voucher to spend in the Visitor Centre & Gift Shop in Ferry Meadows as well as the accolade of their photograph being shared on our social media pages and featuring in the 2022 Nene Park fundraising calendar.  The proceeds raised from calendar sales will go straight back into maintaining and nurturing the wonderful greenspaces within Nene Park, for all the community to enjoy.  

Monthly themes

The theme for September is 'Nene Park Landmarks'. Share a view of your favourite landmark from anywhere within the Nene Park estate.

So, what are you waiting for? Dust off your cameras, fire up your smart phones and get snapping in the Park, then email your entries to [email protected].  We can’t wait to see what you send us!
