CAPTURE what you love about Thurrock on camera and win photography prizes in a competition to celebrate the best the borough has to offer.
With Thurrock this year celebrating its 75th anniversary the hunt is on to find those areas residents love.
Cllr Val Morris-Cook, portfolio holder for Environment said: “We want our residents to join us and celebrate what a really great place Thurrock is and somewhere to be proud of.
“I can’t wait to see the entries and the places people choose to snap. I really hope the competition will not only capture the imagination of the borough but also what is great about Thurrock and why we should all love it.”
The Love Thurrock photography competition is open to all amateur photographers resident in Thurrock and will be judged in three categories.
There are two youth categories (five to 13 year olds and 14 to 19 year olds) with first prizes of a camera and second and third prizes winning professionally printed and framed copies of the winning shots.
For adults (over-19) the first prize is a £250 camera; second £150 cash and £100 cash for the third. This prize is sponsored by The Junction, who own and manage Thurrock Retail Park.
The competition is solely based online with entries made via Thurrock Council’s website front page (www.thurrock.gov.uk) and its Flickr page and more information can be found online at www.thurrock.gov.uk
There is no limit to the number of entries from each person.
The competition launches on Monday, 12 September and runs until 7 October.
Judging will be done within one week of the closing date.
