FUW urges Pembrokeshire pupils to start snapping
The arrival of longer daylight hours coupled with improved weather conditions has prompted the organisers of a Farmers' Union of Wales photographic competition for Pembrokeshire school pupils to get their cameras out and start snapping.
The competition, organised by the union's county’s branch and sponsored by local organic milk producers Trioni Ltd, is open to children aged between 4 and 18 and invites them to submit photographs in Pembrokeshire depicting one of three categories - Farm Life, The Countryside and Wildlife.
It will be judged in two age categories, 4-11 and 12-18, and the closing date for entries to be submitted is Friday May 25.
“We have received a number of entries since the competition was launched in March but with the longer daylight hours and better weather I’m sure there are many other pupils who would like to get involved with this very worthwhile project before it’s too late,” said FUW Pembrokeshire county vice chairman Hywel Vaughan.
The photographs taken by the winner and runner-up of each category and age group will be made into a 2013 calendar which will be sold in aid of the FUW president’s charity Cancer Research Wales.
The winner of each category will receive a £15 gift voucher for themselves, a copy of the calendar featuring their photograph, one day’s free admittance to the 2012 Pembrokeshire County Show to receive their prizes and a £25 cheque for their school.
The runner-up of each category will receive a £10 gift voucher for themselves, a copy of the calendar featuring their photograph, one day’s free admittance to the 2012 Pembrokeshire County Show to receive their prizes and a £15 cheque for their school.
The winning and runners-up entries, together with a selection of other entries, will be displayed at the FUW marquee during the county show on August 14-16.
The pupil’s name, class number, school name and entry category must be included on all entries which should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted or delivered to the FUW County Office, 3 North Street, Haverfordwest, SA61 2JE, and marked “Schools Competition".
