NFU Welshpool Launches Photography Competition

NFU Welshpool Launches Photography Competition to Champion the Beauty of its Surroundings

NFU Welshpool is calling all professional, amateur and aspiring photographers to capture the beauty of Montgomeryshire and the Welshpool area, as it launches its first photography competition. NFU Welshpool is due to move into its new commercial office in the heart of the town centre at the start of 2017. The new office will include a gigantic feature wall displaying the winning image.

Put your photography skills to the test and maybe you’ll see your image blown up to large scale. Could you claim the fame and put your mark on the Welshpool wall! The image can be a landscape, farming scene, town image or perhaps the beauty of nature – in essence, it’s your depiction of what the Montgomeryshire County means to you. The picture should be timeless; historical images can be accepted as long as it is to a high resolution quality, suitable to being blown up to large scale.

The winning entry will receive £100 – as well as it being on full display on the new office wall (blown up to scale 10mx3m). The runner-up 12 images will be selected to create a charity 2017 calendar. All entries should be submitted by Friday 9th December 2016 – and must be supplied in raw format on a disk.

Stephen Kenyon, NFU Welshpool, commented; “We’re extremely excited to launch our first photography competition. It’s a chance for budding photographers to select a unique landscape, farming or nature scene, the colours of the changing seasons or champion the diversity of livestock in the Montgomeryshire region.  Our new office is in the development stages, with plans to move in early 2017 – we now look forward to the winning image branding our feature wall and representing and celebrating the beauty of our locality.”

Please email Rachel_gethin@nfumutual.co.uk  or call 01938 552275 to confirm your entry and to submit your contact details.
