Now is the time to snap an apple a day
With apples dripping – and dropping -- from the boughs, now is the moment to whip out your camera to take a winning shot for Marlborough Apple Day’s photographic competition.
Open to everyone either resident or at school in the area, the competition invites amateur photographers to take an apple-related photo in celebration of apples and orchards.
Entry forms are available from White Horse Bookshop, Marlborough Photo, Quality Stationers and St John’s School. There are two categories: 16 and under, and 17 and over. Entry costs just £1 (free for students) but and the closing date is 24 September at midday.
Marlborough Apple Day organiser, Philippa Davenport tells Marlborough News Online: “Due to a cold winter and a mild spring, it’s set to be a bumper apple crop again this year, so get snapping – even if you’ve only got a camera phone.
“Not only do we have some lovely prizes but the glory of having your winning shot displayed.”
An exhibition of entries – the competition is sponsored by Sheepgrove Organic Farm -- will go on display at Marlborough Apple Day on Saturday 29 October, when the winners will be announced and prizes presented.
