Chance for Lichfield and Burntwood youngsters to join photography competition

Budding photographers across Lichfield and Burntwood are being given the chance to take part in a county-wide competition.

Staffordshire County Council is calling on young people to catch on camera any images on the theme of transport.

The two winning photographers in the Snap the Web contest will scoop a £75 prize and two runners up will be awarded £50 each. The entries will be split into categories – one for children in school years five to nine and one for pupils in years 10 and 11.

All of the entries will have the chance to be published in the next Local Transport Plan and on the county council’s Flickr pages.

Staffordshire County Councillor Robert Marshall, Cabinet member for Regeneration and Infrastructure, said:

“Every single person relies on the transport network one way or another – it enables us to connect with other people and places and therefore it is the lifeblood of Staffordshire. That is why we want to know what young people think and feel about it.

“The photos can be serious or funny, colourful or drab – all we ask is that they reflect the honest opinions of the photographers when it comes to getting around in Staffordshire.”

Entrants must be in full time education within Staffordshire and entry forms are available on a first come, first served basis from participating schools. Parents or guardians must register their children in the competition by May 28 and the deadline for entries is Friday, July 2. The winners will be announced during the week of July 12.  Aspiring photographers can enter a maximum of two pictures in Jpeg format into the competition.

Full details of entry are available at www.staffordshire.gov.uk/snaptheweb.
