A COMPETITION is offering Stratford residents a chance to share their favourite views.
Retirement community developer McCarthy Stone is looking to capture architecture and culture which can be found around every corner of the town to be enjoyed by prospective homeowners.
The competition aims to showcase scenery, wildlife and landscapes taken by amateur photographers and members of the community.
Stratford mayor, Coun Tony Jackson, will judge the competition. The best photographs will be displayed in some of the developers’ properties.
Spokeswoman Samantha Watkins said: “As the people of England continue to face restrictions due to the pandemic, we will all be spending more time getting out and about in our local areas for our daily exercise – and a wintery walk is the perfect opportunity to appreciate the landscapes and landmarks on our doorstep.
“Stratford-upon-Avon has so many stunning views and places to visit, and it is important that our new homeowners at Harvard Place and Orchard Gate get to discover some of these for themselves. In the meantime, we would encourage people in the town to take their cameras or phones when they are on their daily walks and capture photographs of Stratford-upon-Avon in all its splendour which can be entered into our competition. Entrants are also welcome to submit any other images of the local area that they have taken over the past three months for consideration.”
Photos – up to five per entrant – should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date of Sunday February28, with ‘Stratford-upon-Avon Photo Contest’ in the subject. The file type should be jpg and no larger than 3MB and landscape. The email should include the entrant’s full name, a title and where it was taken.
