Calling all local photographers

Community website AboutMyArea is working in partnership with Neston Town Council and Cheshire West and Chester Council to produce a Neston Calendar for 2018.

The vision is that the calendar will celebrate the stunning scenery, interesting people and amazing events that make Neston and its surrounding villages such a great place to live.

If you already have a photo or photos that you think could grace the pages of a Neston calendar, or would like to get snapping and try to capture something, we would love to hear from you.

They are looking for a range of styles, seasons and subjects. There are only two rules:

1. Be careful not to include images that feature people unless you have the express permission of the subject/s (proof will be required);

2. Photographs have to be taken in the CH64 postcode area.

Photographs will need to be submitted by no later than Friday 30 June 2017.

A panel from AboutMyArea, Neston Town Council and Cheshire West and Chester Council will pick 11 photos to be included in the calendar. The twelfth, for the month of June, is a special shot of Neston Ladies Club Day being commissioned from local professional photographer Bernard Rose.

Photographs must be landscape in jpg format, ideally a minimum of 8mb when viewed.  Please just try to ensure your camera or 'phone is set to the highest possible resolution when taking a new picture. If you're not sure, don't worry, submit your photos anyway and we will see if they are useable.

It is envisaged that the calendar will go on sale in September.  Details of the price and where to get it will be published in due course.  The calendar will be sold on a not-for-profit basis, so if there are any excess takings over and above the cost of production and sale, these will go towards the following year's calendar and local good causes.

It is envisaged that the winning photographs and runners-up will also go on display in the Town Hall later in the year.

Any questions or if you wish to submit an image please contact Carrie Spacey by email.
