Background to the project

Following another wonderful year of monthly photography competition entries in 2021, Nene Park is excited to announce the popular competitions will continue throughout 2022.

Each month, the photography competitions 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 every month, the new theme will be announced and the winning entry from the previous month shared.  This year, the monthly winners will receive a £20 voucher to spend in a Park venue of their choice – the Visitor Centre & Gift Shop, Lakeside Farm Shop or Nene Outdoors Watersports & Activity Centre. 

The winners will also enjoy the accolade of their photograph being shared on the Nene Park social media pages, displayed in our annual winter photography exhibition and featured in the 2023 Nene Park fundraising calendar. All proceeds raised from calendar sales go straight back into maintaining and nurturing the greenspaces within Nene Park, for all the community to enjoy. 

Monthly themes

The theme for July is 'Park Landscapes'.  Photos can be taken in any area of Nene Park – Ferry Meadows, Orton Mere, Woodston Reach, Thorpe Meadows or the Rural 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!
