Commonwealth Woods photography competition launched

Published on: Thursday 27th June 2013

Would you like to see one of your photographs in print and exhibited in public? Now is your chance to enter the Commonwealth Woods Photographic Competition which aims to highlight the beauty and importance of trees, woodlands and forests and how they’re used by animals as well as humans! So why not get out into your local woods and see what you can capture with your camera?

Supported by The Commonwealth Forestry Association, the competition aims to promote the beauty of the 13 woods in and around Glasgow that make up the Commonwealth Woods network, a legacy project of the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Hugh McNish, Forestry Commission Scotland’s health advisor for the central belt, said: “Show us what green spaces mean to you. It doesn’t matter whether you’re six or sixty, we want to see your photos of the woods, people enjoying or working in the woods, animals and birdlife and nature in the different seasons.”

The competition is open to everyone and the 25 best photographs will be exhibited in Glasgow during the 2014 Commonwealth Games and on the official Commonwealth Woods website.

The photographer who takes the best photo as judged by our independent panel will win a Nikon D3100 digital SLR camera.

Please send your photos to The competition will close on 31st December 2013.

Good luck!
