Win £1,000 for your Leeds in Bloom photos

TO celebrate the city’s blooming marvellous parks and gardens, Leeds City Council is holding a photo competition.

Take a photograph capturing what ‘in bloom’ means to you, and you could be in with a chance of taking home some big money prizes.

The subject is a completely free choice providing the picture is taken at a Leeds City Council-owned nature reserve, park, green space or waterway.

Photographs could feature anything from a sports activity to wildlife, a picnic or cultivated flowers.

The winner of the each category will receive £1,000 and a trophy and there will be two runners up receiving £250 each and a medal. The best entries will be displayed at a public area within Leeds and winning photographs will be used in Leeds in Bloom promotional material.

There are three ways of entering - by email, post and via Facebook. You can upload your image straight to the social networking site and tag LCC or upload to the council's wall.

Don’t forget to give your prize-winning snap a title. Then just send LCC a private message containing your name, address, telephone number and title of the image

Alternatively you can email your image to webmaster@leeds.gov.uk and include your name, address and telephone number. Use “In Bloom” as the subject heading.

Finally for the traditionalists out there, you can send your photograph on a disk to Richard Gill, Farnley Hall, Hall Lane, Leeds LS12 5HA.

The rules of the competition are as follows:

Entrants must provide a name, contact address and telephone number and images should be taken within the last 12 months (between August 2010 and August 2011).

Individual entries only will be accepted and images must be of a green space within the Leeds area owned by Leeds City Council.

Images must not be digitally manipulated and it is limited to only one entry (image) per person – so make it a good one.

The competition closes Wednesday 31 August.
