A popular calendar competition is now underway – with members of the public and local photographers invited to showcase their wonders of Wrexham.
Last year’s competition was very successful and we received some stunning photographs taken throughout the year of wonderful architecture and beauty spots in and around the county borough taken by local, amateur photographers.
Wrexham Council are running the competition again with one difference – the entries must all be in by Sunday 23rd September so get looking through your snaps and start sending in your entries.
Judges are again hoping for another selection of wonderful photos which showcases all that Wrexham has to offer – be that the World Heritage Site, our two National Trust Properties, your local country park; Wrexham’s brilliant architecture in our churches and old buildings, bridges, canals and of course the many waterways that flow through the county borough.
Then there’s all those fantastic outdoor events – St David’s Day Parade, Play Day, Under the Arches, RAF100 and Freedom celebrations, which give great opportunities for good photographs.
The images can be taken at any time of the year but they must be of somewhere in the county borough. 13 images will be included in the 2019 Calendar – one for the front cover and one for each month of the year.
Once again there’s no prize but the winning entries will receive a copy of the 2019 Wonders of Wrexham as a thank you – last year the calendar was sold with profits from the sale of the Calendar given to the Mayor’s charity fund.
Cllr Andy Williams, Mayor of Wrexham, said “We had some very special photos submitted last year and the bar has been set for a very tough competition.
“I look forward to seeing them all as they come in and to seeing the final selection. Good luck everyone.”
The size of the images printed will be 295mm x 295 mmm and images should be cropped to this size or large enough to be cropped to this size.
All images should be submitted at a resolution of minimum 300dpi and the file formats that will be accepted are Tiff, Psd, Epos, Jpeg, High res pdf.
You can also enter as many images as you wish.
All photos should be sent to email@example.com (not us here at Wrexham.com!)
