Making Space for Nature photography competition winners
The Making Space for Nature photography competition has announced the 2021 winners.
The competition, which ran throughout June, encouraged people to get out and explore their local green spaces in villages and towns by photographing urban nature within walking distance from their house.
An event was held at Castle Park in Liskeard on Friday16th July to celebrate the project, where two of the winners of the photo competition were presented with their prize and certificate by Cornwall Councillor Alvey.
The youngest entrant, 6 year old Cadan, was recognised for his picture of a bumblebee and Katie, aged 15, was rewarded for the composition of her photo of meadows.
The winner for the Urban Wildlife category was Craig Macey with his picture of a common lizard and Mark Broadhurst was the runner up for his picture of fox cubs on the edge of a housing estate.
The People and Parks category had some wonderful entries showing the wide range of use of Cornwall’s public spaces. Nicole Forrester’s winning photograph of people using a skate park was a great action shot. The runner up, Anna Druce, submitted a tranquil shot of an inviting park with tree blossoms.
