Spring truly has sprung and the Land of the Fanns is bursting with colour and sights. The Landscape Partnership Scheme’s Spring Photography Competition is now open so it’s time to dust off the camera or pick up the mobile and take some photos that reflect the changing season in the world around you.

The Land of the Fanns encompasses Havering, Brentwood, Baking & Dagenham, Thurrock and the East London/Essex border. Across this area are beautiful natural spaces but there are also acres of gardens where Spring is making an appearance. Can you capture the magic and delight of the natural world on your doorstep? 

Taking Spring as the theme for photos, the Land of the Fanns photography exhibition is open to everyone, young or old, experienced photographer or novice. In this time of restricted movement, it is more important than ever to value and appreciate what is around us. Flowers can grow in pots, cracks in brickwork or even guttering, birds are busy collecting things for nests from gardens and tress are bursting into bud in streets across the counties. What’s to be seen from the kitchen window or the bedroom? Is it urban or rural? Where will the winning images come from?

There are three prizes of vouchers to be won: 1st prize £80, 2nd prize £50, 3rd prize £20. All entries will be displayed on the Land of the Fanns website. Up to three images can be submitted per person.
