'In The Peace Of Wild Things'
Free to enter and open to all
We love the winter here at Leedam, the mist and ice make our meadows and woodlands breath-taking places to be. But the turn of spring is a very exciting time.
Our natural burial grounds shake off the shackles of the cold and transform with wildflowers’ blossom and the trees’ returning leaves. The arrival of the warmer weather means the local wildlife pops its head up too. Bumblebees and butterflies can be seen again, dancing across the meadows, while the native hedgehogs and dormice arise from their hibernation holes. The smells of the countryside can be enjoyed once more, as the cold wet air dwindles. Birdsong, sunshine and beauty - what more could you ask for.
So, what better way to capture such buzz than with a picture competition!
We would like all you seasoned and budding photographers alike to grab your cameras and make your way to our natural burial ground near you. Get creative and send us your best. Whether that’s a floral close up, a panoramic view or of the people you’re with, send up to five pictures for your chance to win a natural burial plot at your choice of one of our burial grounds.
There will be one winner per burial ground (so seven in total).
Please also send a short written piece about yourselves (200 words max.) as we would love to know more about you ... Where does your love of photography come from? Did you already know about natural burial or is this the first you’ve heard? What’s your favourite thing about spring? And to help give your pictures some background, please give your photographs titles to really capture the moment.
Send your picture/s to firstname.lastname@example.org in their original format by 1st May 2014. Winners will be announced on 8th May 2014 on our website’s blog and our facebook and twitter pages.
