THE National Park Authority’s Seasonal Snaps photo competition is back and organisers are urging people to submit their forest photographs.

The summer edition of Seasonal Snaps runs until Wednesday, and entries are welcomed from anyone from professional photographers to smartphone amateurs.

The winners will be chosen by a public vote, which will be open throughout the competition on the National Park Authority’s Facebook page.

The results will be announced on August 7, with the four best entries winning a host of goodies. Barry Rickman of the NPA said: “This competition is seeking to harness the power of social media to encourage people to celebrate the beauty of the New Forest and encourage others to protect and cherish the area.

“I wish all the entrants the best of luck and I hope they enjoy photographing the unique landscape of the national park.”
