The 2015 competition winner, Tuppence in Lowndes Park, by Carole Jeffery

Chesham in Bloom are excited to launch their 2016 Photographic Competition. Now in its fifth year, this popular competition gets more entries every year and they want 2016 to be no exception. This time the theme is 'Your Chesham', so use your imagination and take photos of what you think of as "your Chesham"! Some of the best entries will feature in the 2017 Chesham in Bloom fundraising calendar, so photos of the local landscape and Chesham landmarks are particularly welcome, as of course, are photos of the town's trees, flowers and garden - it is Chesham in Bloom after all!

First prize is £25, sponsored by JPS Stationers. Second and third prizes are £15 and £10, sponsored by yourChesham. To be in with a chance of winning, please send digital photos along with a completed entry form any time before the 15th June 2016 to (below 5MB in size, please) or on CD to Kathryn Graves at Chesham Town Hall, Chesham, HP5 1DS. Hard copy photos can also be accepted.

Why does the competition run for so long? Well, Chesham in Bloom want to see that Chesham looks great all year round and so are keen to have entries taken throughout the year. To take part, you can download an entry form (Word, 144 KB) or pick up a copy at the Town Hall. The competition terms and conditions can be found on the form. 

To get some inspiration, why not take a look at the 2016 Chesham in Bloom calendar? It's on sale for just £6 at JPS Stationers in Market Square (or currently from their Wednesday and Saturday market stalls while their shop is being refurbished). JPS donates part of the proceeds to Chesham in Bloom, helping them to do more work around town such as creating new flower beds, planting trees, litter picking and refurbishing street furniture. The In Bloom calendars get sent all round the world to Chesham ex-pats and make a great Christmas present!

The team looks forward to seeing your photographs!
