150th Anniversary Picture Competition

August winner - Egyptian Geese - Heather Keith

 

150th Anniversary Picture Competition

As part of our 150th Anniversary celebrations, the Conservators are delighted to launch a competition for the best pictures of the Commons.

Your picture can be of any medium - photography, sketch, painting or any other form you wish - and can be of anything at all - flowers or insects, wide sweeping vistas down the golf fairways, the iconic Windmill or visitors enjoying the Commons for one of our core reasons for being - exercise and recreation.

To qualify, your entry must be a picture of either Wimbledon Common, Putney Heath or Putney Lower Common and should be current and taken in September 2021 - Our aim is to capture the essence of the Commons over the course of the year and we hope many will feature in a celebration book to be published later in 2022.   Ideally your images should be current to reflect the Commons in 2021 and 2022.

Why not join in and be in with the chance of winning some amazing prizes!

The August prize has been very kindly donated by the Hand in Hand - a meal for four and a private tour of the cellar!

You can enter up to three images each month, and there will be monthly prizes for the best picture submitted as judged by the Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators, with an overall winner chosen at the end of the twelve months.  To choose the overall winner we will open the vote up to the public to choose their favourite - either by visiting our Information Centre where the pictures will be on display, or via our social media platforms.

All pictures entered will be included in a gallery here on our website.

Closing dates for each month are 5pm on:

31 August 2021
