Photo Competition To Celebrate Bourton-On-The-Water
30 Sep 2015

The village of Bourton-on-the-Water is the inspiration for photographers being challenged to send in their local snaps for the chance to win total prizes worth more than £500.

Award-winning housebuilder Linden Homes Thames Valley has launched the contest for people of all ages, with a closing date of Friday October 30th.

The first of two categories is “Bourton-on-the-Water life” for images such as treasured moments, events, landscapes or traditions. Judging will be divided into two classes: photos from children aged 11 or under, and those from older entrants.

The second category will combine all ages with the theme of “Bourton-on-the-Water buildings and architecture”. This will focus on local buildings, whether long shots or close-ups of intricate details.

The winners aged 11 and under will win £100, with £75 and £50 for coming second and third. Winners aged 12 or more will receive a first prize of £150, with £100 and £75 for coming second and third.

The top pictures will be framed and given pride of place later in the year at the sales and marketing suite of Linden Homes’ new Honeystones development, a collection of high quality three, four and five-bedroom houses in Bourton-on-the-Water.

Steve Garton, Linden Homes Thames Valley Sales and Marketing Director, said: “Bourton-on-the-Water is a beautiful place and villagers are very proud to live here, so we’re expecting a very high standard of photos across the ages.

“The river, countryside and old buildings around here will offer plenty of inspiration. Get snapping and send in your photos – we can’t wait to see them.”

The winners of the competition will also be invited to attend a special event in November where they will be presented with their prize, have their picture taken and see their photo on display in the sales and marketing suite.
