Burn­side in Bloom are en­cour­ag­ing keen young pho­tog­ra­phers to make last minute en­tries to their pho­tog­ra­phy com­pe­ti­tion.

The group are en­cour­ag­ing lo­cal young­sters to get their cam­eras out to cap­ture the very best of the Burn­side area and send it in for their 2016 cal­en­dar com­pe­ti­tion.

Burn­side in Bloom are an off­shoot of Burn­side Com­mu­nity Coun­cil and their aim is to im­prove the en­vi­ron­ment of the area through the plant­ing of flow­ers, as well as do­ing things like or­gan­ised lit­ter picks.

Now, us­ing the theme of ‘Burn­side in Bloom’ they are ask­ing keen pho­tog­ra­phers to send in their snaps of the area with a chance of them be­ing fea­tured in the cal­en­dar, which will be sold lo­cally.

The team want to in­vite res­i­dents and friends of Burn­side to sub­mit a pho­to­graph or pho­to­graphs on the theme of ‘Burn­side in Bloom’.

The com­pe­ti­tion opened ear­lier this year and will close on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 12.

This pos­i­tive theme can be in­ter­preted in any way and the best 12 pho­to­graphs will fea­ture in the cal­en­dar.

And mem­ber of Burn­side in Bloom Mal­colm Pig­got says the group are ea­ger to get en­tries from the younger pop­u­la­tion of Burn­side: “We’ve got a lot of en­tries from adults but we know there’s some tal­ented young peo­ple in Burn­side and we’d like to get some en­tries from them. The pic­ture can be of any­thing that shows Burn­side in a pos­i­tive light.”

The pro­ceeds from the sales of cal­en­dars, which are in­tended to go on sale in Septem­ber, will be in aid of the Burn­side in Bloom pro­ject. The cal­en­dar will be on sale in lo­cal shops, which are spon­sor­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.

To sub­mit your pho­to­graph email it to Mal­colm Pig­got at mal­colm. pig­got@ntl­world.com.
