BENTS Garden & Home has welcomed the New Year with the launch of its annual photography competition, looking for the very best images of nature which capture the beauty of our surroundings.
Once again the Glazebury based garden & home centre is calling on amateur photographers to focus their lenses or angle their iphones to take photographs of gardens and flowers, landscapes and wildlife. The winning entry, as voted for by Bents’ customers, will receive £50 worth of Bents vouchers and a framed copy of their image.
Matthew Bent, Managing Director said: “We always have an incredible response to this competition with some fantastic photographs submitted over the past few years. The number of entries makes shortlisting a very tricky task but also a hugely enjoyable one as the images are always so varied.
“We’re looking for as many entries as possible again this year so get snapping and send us your photographs of your favourite piece of nature.”
Bents would like to see a wide range of nature photography from sweeping panoramic landscapes to close up shots showing the intricate beauty of plants and flowers, or animal shots which can be both beautiful and sometimes very amusing!
The closing date for the competition is Sunday 26th January and 20 short-listed entries will be displayed in store throughout February.
Customers will be able to vote for their favourite image with the winning entry announced in early March.
Entry forms are available from customer services or entries can be made online at bents.co.uk
