A photographic competition that aims to capture England's past has been launched by the Local Heritage Initiative (LHI). Amateur and professional photographers are being encouraged to submit digital images relating to projects funded by the Initiative, which distributes grants on behalf of the Heritage Lottery Fund and is also sponsored by Nationwide Building Society. There are currently some 700 such projects across the country, covering archaeological, natural, built and industrial heritage as well as customs and traditions. All are listed on the LHI web site at www.lhi.org.uk/competition

The competition is open to entrants in three categories: amateur photographers; professional photographers; and young people under 14. Entries must be directly related to an aspect of a past or present LHI project.

The winner in each category will receive a digital camera worth 500, presented by Nationwide Building Society. Prizes will be awarded to the images displaying the highest degree of skill, imagination and creative flair. Photographs will be judged by a panel of leading professional photographers and the winning and runner-up entries will be featured on the LHI website in Autumn 2003 and at a special exhibition to be staged in Bristol.

Further details and entry forms can be downloaded from the competition web site, or obtained by calling LHI on 0117 970 7944 or emailing: jessica.britton@countryside.gov.uk. Entries must be submitted to Local Heritage Initiative Digital Photography Competition, Bridge House, Sion Place, Clifton Down, Bristol, BS8 4AS. The closing date for entries is 29th September 2003.
