Entries are now open for the 2019 Wonders of Wrexham Calendar photography competition!

Last year’s competition was very successful and we received some stunning photographs taken throughout the year of wonderful architecture and beauty spots in and around the county borough taken by local, amateur photographers.

We’re running the competition again with one difference – the entries must all be in by Sunday 23 September so get looking through your snaps and start sending in your entries.

“Recognised areas of outstanding natural beauty”

Judges are again hoping for another selection of wonderful photos – after all several recognised areas of outstanding natural beauty, three of the Wonders of Wales are here in Wrexham, we have two national trust properties and of course the magnificent Aqueduct at Pontcysyllte.

And that’s just the start of it. We also have our country parks, brilliant architecture in our churches and old buildings, bridges, canals and of course the many waterways that flow through the county borough. Then there’s all those fantastic outdoor events – St David’s Day Parade, Play Day, Under the Arches, RAF100 and Freedom celebrations, which give great opportunities for good photographs.

All images should be submitted at a resolution of minimum 300dpi and the file formats that will be accepted are Tiff, Psd, Epos, Jpeg, High res pdf.

“Taken at any time of the year”

The images can be taken at any time of the year but they must be of somewhere in the county borough. 13 images will be included in the 2019 Calendar – one for the front cover and one for each month of the year. Please bear in mind the size of the images printed will be 295mm x 295 mmm and images should be cropped to this size or large enough to be cropped to this size.

Once again there’s no prize but the winning entries will receive a copy of the 2019 Wonders of Wrexham as a thank you.

You can also enter as many images as you wish!

Cllr Andy Williams, Mayor of Wrexham, said “We had some very special photos submitted last year and the bar has been set for a very tough competition. I look forward to seeing them all as they come in and to seeing the final selection. Good luck everyone.”

All photos should be sent to calendar@wrexham.gov.uk
