From the Necropolis, which provides a safe haven for 180 species of flowering plants and trees, to the duck pond at Alexandra Park, Dennistoun’s parks also host a diversity of flora and fauna, attracting interest from scientists and nature-lovers alike. And now there’s a chance to celebrate them as part of a citywide competition being run by the Glasgow Science Festival.
You are invited to celebrate our ‘dear green places‘ by submitting a photograph which encapsulates your love for Glasgow’s ‘Parklife’ and the story or memory behind it.
This isn’t a professional photography competition. Photos of all ages and sizes are welcome, from a quick snap on your camera phone to an old scanned photie of your misspent youth. You’re welcome to send in as many photos as you like.
The top images will be showcased in an exhibition at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum as part of ‘Glasgow, Naturally’ on 15th and 16th June, with prizes for the winning entries. Photographs may also be selected to feature in the Glasgow Science Festival ‘Photo of the Day’ series.
The competition deadline is 7th June 2013.
Details of how to enter, as well as full terms and conditions, can be found on the Glasgow Science Festival website.
