Photographers urged to get snapping
4:20pm Monday 11th March 2013 in News
KEEN photographers are being urged to get snapping and enter the annual Webbs calendar competition.
Webbs Garden Centres in Wychbold, near Droitwich and West Hagley are running the photo competition for the ninth year running after it proved such a continuing hit with customers.
More than 1,500 images were entered from 330 photographers into last year's competition, which judges then had to whittle down to the final 12, depicting each month of the year.
Webbs is planning to produce a calendar for 2014 from original photographs. Webbs’ judges are again searching for wonderful photographs of flowers, gardens, garden scenes, flora and fauna.
Fifty pence from every calendar sold will be donated to Greenfingers, the gardening industry charity which helps create magical gardens in children’s hospices.
The competition is open to everyone, amateur or enthusiast of any age. Entry forms available in-store at Wychbold, West Hagley or to download from webbsdirect.co.uk The closing date for entries is Monday, June 10. The 12 winning entries will be featured in the calendar, with each winning photographer credited. The calendar will go on sale in the autumn.
The 12 winning entrants will each receive Webbs gift vouchers worth £30 and 12 copies of the calendar to give to friends and family.
