Marple Festival Photographic Competition
« on: July 30, 2010, 11:11:14 AM »
This is advanced warning that there will be a competition for photographs taken during the forthcoming Marple Festival, so all you keen local photographers will have to get your best lenses out and give them a polish!

Details of the competition categories and prizes will be available soon but for now you just need to know that the photographs must be taken during the Festival period of 10 to 25 September and have a Festival theme, obviously. There will be Junior and Senior categories, so the kids can get involved too.

Full rules and entry details will be published once available.
