Chance to win £50 for budding photographers


Free £50 prizes are up for grabs for keen photographers in Devonshire West.

The Lottery funded Big Local group is running a competition for shots that capture the spirit of the area.

Brian Booker is part of the resident-led team and said, “What we are really looking for is local people to show what they love about their community.

“People who know all the nooks and crannies and can photograph a beautiful spot or a quirky scene.”

Devonshire West is roughly the bottom half of the Devonshire ward, from Beamsley Road to Terminus Road, underneath Whitley Road and the railway.

There is one £50 prize for under 18s and two for people aged 18 or over.

Entries should be emailed to or submitted to the Devonshire West Big Local Facebook page by August 21.

Brian added, “We will use some of these new photos on our website and we’re hoping that, put together, they will really build up a picture of how great our area is.

“If you want to ask any questions, come and find us at our pop-up community library on Tuesday afternoons this month at the Devonshire Children’s Centre on Seaside.”
