During this October half term, kids will gather at Wembley Park to discover its natural beauty and capture it through photography.
The Wembley Park Photography Competition welcomes participants under 14 to share their images, celebrating the local area’s nature.
From birds near the ponds and water features to insects at the bug hotel in Union Park, a variety of creatures can be captured for the competition. Whether it’s the mature trees along Olympic Way, the fauna of Elvin Gardens, or a beautiful sunset over Arena Square, all natural elements in the neighbourhood are fair game for this free competition.
David Hughes. Estate Landscape Manager, Wembley Park, said, “We have a wonderfully diverse natural environment here in Wembley Park. This half term we are inviting young people to explore and appreciate that, spending time being present in nature and capturing its beauty.”
The Wembley Park Photography Competition is open to everyone from complete beginners to young people who are already camera-savvy. Pictures can be taken anywhere within the boundaries of Wembley Park and must be submitted between 16th and 29th October 2023 to be eligible for entry.
Entries will be judged by Julian Tollast, Head of Masterplanning & Design, and David Hughes, Estate Landscape Manager at Wembley Park, along with local photographer and Second Floor Studios & Arts resident Amanda Rose, and Wembley Park’s resident photographer Chris Winter.
Creativity and natural beauty will be the stars of the show when it comes to the winning entries. The competition’s top prize will be a Kodak PixPro Astro Zoom camera complete with The Beginner’s Photography Guidebook.
There will also be two runner-up prizes of gift cards worth £50 and £25 to spend at the 60+ shops and restaurants at London Designer Outlet which celebrates its 10th anniversary this month.
