Get Snapping for our Shrewsbury in Bloom Photo Competition
Residents of Shrewsbury are encouraged to submit their photographs in a bid to be featured on the front or back cover of the annual Shrewsbury in Bloom Portfolio as part of the town’s entry this year.
The Shrewsbury in Bloom Group is offering local residents the opportunity to have their photo of the town on the front or back cover of the annual portfolio, which is presented to the Royal Horticultural Society’s judges when they visit the town to inspect the town against exacting criteria.
The portfolio contains details of life in Shrewsbury over the course of a twelve-month period and which the judges are unable to view during their brief visit in the summer.
Shrewsbury in Bloom isn’t just about the plants and flowers we see around town. As part of the town’s entry into the Bloom competitions, Shrewsbury is judged on a number of criteria, including horticultural excellence, environmental responsibility and community participation.
Keith Roberts, Chairman of Shrewsbury in Bloom, said: “With the spring weather, we’re starting to see the flowers bloom around the town which helps to make everywhere look more colourful. This is a great chance for our residents to take iconic photos of the town.
“The photos we’re looking for don’t necessarily have to be of flowers, but can be of buildings or places of local interest that show the beautiful town we live in.”
Photos should be taken within the last twelve months in the town of Shrewsbury.
Entries should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org at any time until May 31.
