Today we launch the Green Shoots Photo Contest - A Year in Lockdown.
It's been a year like no other and we want to capture a collective memory of it for Bearsden - so we are inviting all ages to submit entries by midnight on 30 April under 3 themes:
Our Town in Lockdown - what changes did you notice in Bearsden over the last year?
Discovery - what new experiences and events changed your outlook? It could be stunning scenery on our doorstep, a new baby or pet, a hidden talent....
Home Entertainment - what scenes did you capture of a life more confined? New hobbies or skills, a garden makeover, children finding novel ways to keep themselves entertained?
There are three age categories with some fabulous prizes in each category including photography lessons, art workshop and vouchers for local businesses. Our Judging Panel will shortlist entries for a public vote. We'll have a public winner's gallery in Bearsden, a Green Shoots publication, and more entries will be shown online and in social media.
We can't wait to see what you have - start scrolling through your phone and enter now!
