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
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.
