Green Gosport

Competition 13 - Special award

About Green Gosport

To mark a major 2019 exhibition of IGPOTY being shown in Gosport for the first time, IGPOTY and Hampshire Cultural Trust have teamed up to offer a new free to enter special photographic competition. Use photography to celebrate the green spaces and biodiversity found in Gosport and the surrounding Gosport Peninsula extending to include the Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve across to Salterns Lake. Capture the beauty of your own private garden or your favourite local green spot such as Stoke Lake, Alver Valley Country Park or Walpole Park to reveal the peninsula’s outstanding flora and landscapes through photography. 

Insights

Use the existing IGPOTY categories for inspiration and as a good way to focus on different kinds of subject matter. 

Wider benefits

Whether you are looking to get exposure as a photographer or to focus attention on a natural area in Gosport that you love, this special award aims to do both with two separate awards for young people and adults.

Raise awareness and celebrate the local environment, landscape, plants and green spaces, build your photography skills, get your images exhibited at Gosport Gallery.
