Win fantastic prizes and showcase your talent in this year’s Snap the Ouse photography competition!

Tuesday 22 March 2016

In the lead up to the exciting summer OuseFest celebrations (18-31 July), the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership have just launched their 2016 Snap the Ouse Photography Competition.

The competition is open to any photographs that define the character and feel of the Ouse Washes and surrounding areas and that depict what makes our area great. Whether your photographs include landscapes, wildlife, people, buildings or water, you are encouraged to enter.

The Ouse Washes Landscape is entirely distinctive and immensely beautiful. The huge open skies, expansive views, strongly linear landscape features and isolated settlements, as well as the sense of mystery and tranquillity means endless photographic opportunities. The Ouse Washes Landscape is also rich with distinctive Fenland customs, traditions, folklore and arts, which provide limitless inspiration.

Sara Marshall, Countryside Engagement and Marketing Officer at the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership, says: “Last year’s competition was hugely successful and we hope the Snap the Ouse Competition will provide more fun opportunities for people to see their local environment through different eyes, discover new aspects not seen before and capture what their local area means to them.”

A shortlisted 12 photographs will be posted on the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership’s website for public voting and will also be exhibited at various events throughout OuseFest.

There will be three winners, one from each entrance category (age 12 or under, 13–18, 19 or over), who will each receive a fantastic basket of prizes worth £50. To participate, please send your photographs taken in the Ouse Washes or surrounding area to by Sunday 29 May 2016.
