As part of its Lewes Urban Arboretum project, The Friends of Lewes ran a photography competition.

The subject was “Trees in the Lewes Townscape”.

A tree, trees, or part of a tree should play a major role in the composition, which should capture the contribution of trees to our townscape.

There were three age categories in the competition: Under 12, Under 18, and Adult, and there was also an overall winner selected by members of the public. The prize for each category was a 3 metre tree (chosen from a list of species) for the winner’s own planting.

The opening date for entries was August 1st 2013, and the closing date was Oct 1st 2013.

The entry form and rules were on our Lewes Urban Arboretum page.
