Time is running out to enter a photography competition that celebrates the beauty of Weymouth and Portland’s parks and gardens

People are being asked to go to their local park take a photograph and post it on Twitter or Instagram using #loveweyportparks2018

The best snap will be awarded £100. The competition will run until 30 September 2018.

Cllr Kate Wheller, Community Facilities Briefholder at Weymouth & Portland Borough Council, said: “Weymouth and Portland’s award-winning parks and gardens are among the best in the country. Enjoying them is free, so why not go to your local park, take a snap and you could win £100!

Our parks are among the best in Britain

“We are very fortunate to have so many beautiful public parks, gardens and green spaces that we can walk, play and relax in. As a borough we can all take pride in our parks.

“The aim of this competition is to get more people to enjoy these beautiful places on their doorstep. It couldn’t be easier, all you have to do is go to the park, share a quick snap and you could win £100!”

Councillor Wheller added: “We are also very lucky here in Weymouth and Portland to have so many dedicated volunteers and Friends Groups who work hard to help us make our parks and gardens such special places.”

There are 10 parks and gardens in Weymouth and Portland and they host a programme of community events including art exhibitions, park runs, concerts and outdoor shows.

There is one prize of £100 which will be awarded to the best photograph taken in one of the borough council’s parks or gardens. Photographs can also be emailed in tocommunication@dorset.gov.uk or posted to Parks Photography Competition, South Walks House, Dorchester, DT1 1UZ.
