Holker Hall & Gardens is launching its first ever photography competition to find the perfect shot for the 2012 Holker Hall & Gardens ‘Days You’ll Remember’ visitor leaflet. Amateur photographers are invited into the Gardens at Holker on four dedicated days during August to photograph any area of the public Gardens, exterior of the Hall or open parkland which covers over 20 acres and will be asked to submit their favourite Holker photograph by Friday 2nd September 2011. We would really love to see some shots of people enjoying the gardens and parkland. Please ask people for permission to submit any photographs where they are the main subject of the image.
The competition is open to amateur photographers and the winner will be selected by Holker Hall and professional photographer, Val Corbett. The winning photograph will be featured along with a credit to the winner, in the 2012 Holker Hall & Gardens ‘Days You’ll Remember’ leaflet with 120,000 copies printed and distributed across the North West region.
