A call has been issued for enthusiastic photographers to submit their best snap of the Thames in an annual competition.
The Thames Festival Trust’s annual Thames Lens Photography competition runs until Friday, January 31.
The theme is ‘Thames Discovered’ and applicants are asked to get “up close and personal” with the river.
“Thames Lens is a highlight of the year. The river means different things to different people – a place to relax by the riverside, a way to get around, at the heart of sporting communities, a trading hub, as a unique and valued habitat, and so much more,” said Alistair Gale of the Port of London Authority, which supports the competition.
“The images submitted to Thames Lens every year reflect this and I can’t wait to see this year’s entries!”
Prizes include an afternoon tea experience, photography courses, and the chance to have your photo displayed in an exhibition attended by river interest groups.
Alongside the competition is a mudlarking tour around the foreshore by Southwark Bridge, led by photographer Hannah Smiles, one of the judges of the competition. The tour runs on Sunday, January 12 from 9.30am to 11am.
