CJS Photography Competition in February

This month (February) the suggested theme is Green and the prize is membership of The Orchards Project.

 Green is one of the themes that is open to interpretation. You could take it at face value and pick something that is coloured green or an image of lovely green foliage but then again you might be literal and chose a 'greenhorn' learning a new skills or look to the Green Party for inspiration and select an image of the environment in any of its many guises, or perhaps doing something green for the environment.  We're looking forward to seeing what you decide.

This month the winner will be receive membership to The Orchards Project - the only national charity dedicated entirely to the creation, restoration and celebration of community orchards. Our vision is for every urban citizen to be within walking distance of an orchard. Orchards are excellent habitats for wildlife, welcoming more biodiversity than other urban green spaces. They can transform communities by uniting people around a common purpose: free, locally-grown fruit!
We work with disadvantaged communities, where access to good quality, local green space is often limited, as well as restoring old, forgotten and neglected orchards to their former glory.
As a Member, you’ll receive:

  • A membership welcome pack with factsheets, postcards, a fridge magnet, and unique logo pin badge;
  • Regular member news and updates;
  • Invites to our events;
  • And of course, the feel good factor that comes with supporting community orchards!

Reminder there are four overall prizes to be awarded at the end of the year (in July), all entries, not just the monthly winners will be eligible for these.  The winner will receive an invitation to the gala opening of the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2020.
