Young people in Wales are being encouraged to capture the very best of the Welsh environment in a photo competition being run by Natural Resources Wales (NRW).
NRW is asking young people to capture photos of their friends enjoying their favourite parts of the natural environment – from the glorious sandy beaches to the rugged and rocky mountains.
The competition will be split into two categories – 11 years and under, and 12 - 18 year olds – with a prize of £100 high street vouchers for the winner, plus a free school or college trip to a local NRW site.
It’s the fourth year in which the competition has inspired young people to explore their environment through the lens of a camera.
Sue Williams, Education Team Leader for Natural Resources Wales said:
“We’re lucky to have such a fantastic natural environment in Wales and we want to see snaps of young people making the most of it.
“Wales has some renowned sites and huge tourist attractions, such as Coed y Brenin Forest and the Wales Coast Path, but we also want to see your local favourites and the hidden gems in your community.
“Every year the standard is high, as people really get to grips with nature and embrace the great outdoors. This year, we’ll be looking for creative entries that really capture Wales at its best.”
People should send their entries (maximum two per person), along with their name, age, address, telephone number and school/college name to: firstname.lastname@example.org
