Lancashire and Lake District Life Reader Photos - June 2013
PUBLISHED: 14:23 03 June 2013
There is no shortage of inspirational sights around Lancashire and Lakeland and our talented readers are making the most of the beauty on offer. Every month they are out taking brilliant photographs in all corners of the county, and the best thing is that they share the results with the rest of us.
These superb pictures are just some of the shots uploaded to our recently relaunched website by readers in recent weeks. And while we can all enjoy the photos, they could win the photographers brilliant prizes in our annual competition which is once again sponsored by Preston-based Wilkinson’s Cameras.
As ever they have selected some wonderful prizes to give away to whoever takes the three pictures chosen by our panel of judges. The winner will receive a Nikon D3200 & AF-S 18-55 VR worth £445, second prize is a Nikon 1 J2 & 10-30mm White worth £400 and our third place photographer will win a Nikon Coolpix S9300 Red worth £200 (all prices correct as of January).
The judging panel will be led by Lancashire Life editor Roger Borrell who will choose the winners along with picture editor John Cocks and David Pilkington from Wilkinsons Cameras. And the shortlisted top 12 photographs will be considered for inclusion in the 2014 Lancashire Life calendar.
