Alex Campbell - 2019 Winner, Water and Life, Amateur Photographer

Entries are now open for Walthamstow Wetlands photography competition 2020

It has been a unique spring for us all and many of us will have found our local green spaces to be places of refuge. Walthamstow Wetlands was one of these vital places, and thankfully able to remain open during the lockdown period.

We are delighted to launch a photography competition celebrating Walthamstow Wetlands, and the solace it has given the local community during this unique time. There are three categories to enter your work into as well three themes to provide inspiration.
