The Parks Trust, the self-financing charity that care for over 6,000 acres of parkland across Milton Keynes are again thrilled to announce the launch of their annual Photography Competition which offers all keen amateur photographers the chance to showcase their photography skills and potentially win some fantastic prizes.
The photography competition, which will be running from Thursday 29th July to Sunday 29th August 2021 aims to highlight the beautiful and diverse landscapes and wildlife of Milton Keynes. The Parks Trust are asking people to capture images within the 6,000 acres of green space that they manage across the city which includes parkland, river valleys and lakes.

There will be three lucky winners selected for this year’s competition who will win a photography tuition session with local professional photographer Gill Prince to help them improve their skills. The first prize winner will receive a 4-hour tuition session with Gill, second prize is a 3-hour session and third is a 2-hour session. The sessions can be tailored to suit your individual level of experience and can cover any aspects of photography and/or editing that you would like. You can find out more about her fantastic workshops which take place in parks cross the city here.
Emma Thompson, PR & Marketing Manager for The Parks Trust said ‘Last year we ran our photography competition over the lockdown, when many people were using our parkland and greenspace and we saw a huge number of entrants. As people have continued to seek the benefits of greenspace over the last 12 months and have discovered new areas right on their doorsteps, we’re excited to see the photographs entered into this year’s competition’.
Photos submitted in this competition also have the chance of featuring on The Parks Trust’s social media channels, websites, calendar and on signage across the parks. All entries must be received by the closing date of Sunday 29th August 2021. Please ensure you read and agree to the terms and conditions prior to entering.
