New photography competition launched by Liverpool Parks Friends Forum and Tate Liverpool
LIVERPOOL City Council and Tate Liverpool have launched a new photography competition...
The Liverpool Parks Friends Forum - a forum for all the Friends of Parks groups in the city - stages the annual competition which shows the best of Liverpool's 70-plus parks, gardens, recreation grounds, playgrounds and nature reserves.
This year to celebrate the major summer exhibition at Tate Liverpool -Turner Monet Twombly: Later Paintings.(June 22 to October 28) - there are three special categories in the competition, inspired by the exhibition: ark Landscapes - 'My favourite view', People and Parks, Flora and Fauna - park plants or wildlife.
The best images will be included in the 2013 Parks calendar and there will be prizes for the outstanding entries - including tickets to the exhibition at Tate Liverpool.
Also linked to the summer exhibition is a Parks and Gardens project in which environmental artist, Kerry Morrison will collaborate with local children, young people, adults, schools, community agencies, the city council and Liverpool Primary Care Trust, to create environmental artworks to connect local people with their parks and green spaces.
