Glyndwr Joins National Trust For Photography Contest

Glyndwr University has teamed up with the National Trust to launch an exciting photography competition.

Echoes of Erddig is a contest which allows budding photographers to submit up to 12 photographs from around the Erddig estate near Wrexham.

A shortlist of the best entries will be selected by a panel of Glyndwr University photography undergraduates which will be exhibited at the university later in the year.

The winning entries will then take pride of place featured in Erddig’s 2013 calendar which will go on sale in March 2012.

Tudor Williams, visitor services manager at Erddig said: “To celebrate Erddig being open 364 days of the year we want images from our visitors that convey the richness, colour and diversity of the place.

“We know a great many good quality pictures are taken throughout the year.”

Sally Harrison, senior lecturer in broadcasting and media communications at Glyndŵr University, said: “The Echoes of Erddig competition links Glyndŵr University directly with the National Trust which is an important business both locally and nationally.”

“We’re delighted with the project, particularly as it has come from one of our students, Karen Christianson, who works at Erddig and is about to enter her final year of studies at Glyndŵr.”

The Echoes of Erddig competition is open to all and images can be e-mailed to echoesoferddig@talktalk.net.

All photos entered into the competition will be posted online at http://erddigital.webs.com once a hard copy of is received and the final date for entry is 30 November 2011.
