Summer Photo Competition

We are holding a seasonal photography competition, with the winning images featuring in the Caversham Bridge. A prize of £25 in John Lewis vouchers will be awarded. The last entry date is 1 August 2020

From our own gardens and the River Thames to open spaces we are using for exercise, there are great opportunities for photographers. We would like to share the best photos you have taken in Caversham, Emmer Green and the immediate area. We will feature Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter photos over the next year, starting with our June edition. The best images entered will be featured in an online gallery.

We want to see the amazing and creative ways that you have captured the beauty of the our area during these strange times.
