The Boultham Park Restoration Project is looking for amateur photographers to show their hidden talents in the Boultham Park Summer 2018 Photography Competition.
The competition has three categories - Heritage, Wildlife and Summer - which have been chosen to reflect some of the best aspects of Boultham Park.
Entrants can submit one photo taken at Boultham Park under each category by the closing date of 11:59pm on Sunday 2 September.
There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs including a £100 London Camera Exchange voucher for category winners, a £25 photo-themed goodie bag for the nine shortlisted entries and the Head Judge’s Award for one of the twelve shortlisted entries.
All twelve shortlisted entries will also be framed and exhibited at the Boultham Park Education Centre, in City Hall and around the recently restored park.
Caroline Wallis, Community Development Worker for the Boultham Park Restoration Project said: “We are very excited to be holding this competition for contestants of any age, whether you’ve visited Boultham Park before or not!
“This is a great opportunity to capture the beauty of the park, not only through the lens, but by taking a stroll through the 50-acre grounds and enjoying the experience the park has to offer.
“We look forward to reviewing the submissions and putting the winning shots up around the park for everyone to admire.”
Entry forms are available at www.boulthampark.co.uk/photo-competition-2018/, the Boultham Park Café and on the Boultham Park Facebook and Twitter pages.
Boultham Park has recently undergone a £4 million transformation, supported by £2.7 million funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund ‘Parks for People’ initiative, raised by players of The National Lottery. The joint project between Linkage and City of Lincoln Council has seen a number of improvements, including a new café and an Education Centre for Linkage students, plus the restoration of key features in the park such as the bandstand, sundial and the main gates.
