Our hunt for hidden talent is back on.  We are once again calling upon all amateur photographers to take up their tripods, focus their lenses and capture images of nature for the 2018 Bents Photography Competition.


The hugely popular competition returns for its ninth consecutive year and we are looking for photographs which capture the beauty of our surroundings; from gardens and flowers to landscapes and wildlife.  Whether it’s a close up shot showing the intricate detail of a flower, a wide angle view of a breath-taking landscape or an image capturing the beauty of animals; all have featured in previous winning photographs.


20 shorlisted entries will be displayed in the Centre and on our Facebook page where customers will be able to vote for their favourite image.  The winning entry will receive £50 worth of Bents vouchers and a framed copy of their print.


Each year the number and standard of entries increases and we are taken aback by the huge amount of talent out there.  We would like to encourage as many entries as possible and are looking forward to the shortlisting process, which is becoming a very challenging task!


The closing date for the competition is Friday 28th February and the 20 shortlisted entries will be on display for voting throughout March.  The winning entry will be announced in early April.


Entry forms are available from Customer Services or entries can be made online.


Get snapping and good luck!
