Zoom in for photo contest
Top pictures destined for calendar
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.
