Eileen Savill Award 2021

The Manhood Wildlife and Heritage Group have launched the Eileen Savill Award 2021. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone under the age of 25 to enter either a photograph or other artwork celebrating the wildlife and landscape of the Manhood Peninsula.

This year the Manhood Heritage and Wildlife Group want everyone to give everyone the much needed opportunity to celebrate the wildlife and landscape of the Manhood

Peninsula, through a photograph or other artwork.

 

During lockdown restrictions, for many of us the natural world has benefitted our health, both physically and mentally. Whether it be enjoying time in the garden, a run, walk or cycle or simply looking out the window, the natural world has lifted our spirits.

 

They want you to capture a fragment of nature that you find beautiful, in whatever way - something that you have an emotional connection to because it makes you smile, comforts you, clears your head, interests you, amazes you or intrigues you. However it makes you feel.

 

You can do this by capturing it in a photo or any other piece of artwork, using any methods - painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, printing, etc.

 

Remember to also explain why you chose the submitted piece of work to celebrate our beautiful nature.

 

If you have produced a piece of artwork other than a photo, we only require a photograph of it at first. The Manhood Wildlife and Heritage Group will contact you if we want to see it first-hand.

 

During the judging, age will be taken into consideration and prizes may well be awarded in separate age categories.

 

Covid allowing, an exhibition will be held of all entries later in the year.

 

Submit your entries to eileensavillaward@mwhg.org.uk  Remember to include your name, age and why you chose your fragment of beautiful nature and to attach your photo (or a photo of your artwork) to the email. Parents/Guardians/Teachers can of course help submit entries from younger children.

 

 

Deadline for entries is 31st August 2021
