Photography Competition

Photography Competition

One of the ways we recognise our volunteers is a photography competition which only volunteers can enter. The overall winner is presented with a trophy, framed print of their photograph and a special prize as a token of appreciation at our annual Volunteers Party, and all volunteers whose photographs appear in the calendar receive a free copy of the calendar.

2018 Calendar - Price now reduced to £2.50 Calendars are on sale at Myddelton House Gardens and Lee Valley White Water Centre. Two different covers are available this year as we had joint winners in 2017.

The standard of entries was particularly high this year presenting a tough task for the judging panel which included Lee Valley Regional Park Authority Chairman Paul Osborn, other Board Members and Chief Executive Shaun Dawson.

As there were so many good pictures, the panel decided to give three “highly commended” awards along with category winners. These highly commended photographs are:

Debbie Arnold - Sun rising on an icy river
Dave Fossett - Greylag Goose over Holyfield Hall Farm
Mark Braun - Cormorant at Fishers Green
