Meg wins photo competition

Friday, August 28, 2009

A recent photograph taken in Norfolk Park by Heeley MP Meg Munn has won the parliamentarian category for the nationwide Postcards from the Park photography competition. Her photograph will now be professionally exhibited at the Southwark Park Cafe Gallery in London, and turned into postcards to be distributed at Lottery-funded venues across the UK.

 

The Postcards from the Park competition celebrates public parks and the 1.2billion invested in parks and the environment by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the Big Lottery Fund (BIG). The competition has been organised in partnership with parks charity GreenSpace and has encouraged thousands of people across the UK to capture what they love most about parks in an imaginative way.

 

Meg said:

 

‘I am delighted to have won this competition, and pleased that a stunning photo of Norfolk Park will be seen across the country. Norfolk Park is one of Sheffield’s gems and the photo helps support our claim of being the greenest city in England.’

 

The competition is in its third year and over 2,700 entries from more than 1,800 people were received. This includes 140 photographs submitted from the Yorkshire and the Humber region.

 

Fiona Spiers, Head of the Heritage Lottery Fund for the region said:

 

“We congratulate Meg Munn on her winning entry. Parks are vital places where people have an opportunity to escape the daily hustle and bustle and enjoy the fresh air.  Norfolk Park is no exception. The huge number of photographs that were entered for this competition shows just how popular parks are right across the country. This is why HLF and BIG support parks with such a massive investment of our funding.”

 

A gallery of the winning entries will be available to view from 1 September 2009 at:
