Life In Lockdown photo competition for young people

Sherwood Forest Rotary Club has launched a Life In Lockdown photo competition for all young people in the Sherwood Forest area — Edwinstowe, Ollerton, Boughton and surrounding villages.

It said the aim was to engage with young people in the community and give them the chance to show what they have been doing the Covid-19 lockdown.

Entries can be pictures of artwork, baking, schoolwork, children at formal learning activities, keeping active, out in the garden, helping at home, etc.

Suggested themes are pets, wildlife/Nature and learning at home.

The competition is in two age groups — up to 11 years and 12-15 years.

A spokesman said: “Please encourage all children to take part, get them to take an image of something in one of the themes and then email it to the Rotary Club of Sherwood Forest.”

Submitted entries will be posted on the Rotary club’s social media platforms.

Entries should be emailed to, or submitted via the club’s Facebook page — — or on Twitter at @forest-Rotary or on Instagram at sherwoodforestrotary

Entrants should add their forename and an email address.

The judges will be Rotary Club of Sherwood Forest nominated Rotarians. Age group winners will receive a £5 Amazon voucher and the overall winner will receive a £20 voucher.

No children’s faces should be shown, or vehicle registration numbers, house numbers or other identifying features.

The image must be of work or an activity completed or suggested by the young person. Adults may assist with ‘hazardous’ activities and accompany/assist on cycle rides, baking etc.

Closing date for entries is 22nd June.

Parents must give permission for their children to enter the competition, and by entering the competition, it is understood that permission has been given.

If you do not want your entry featured in local media or publications that the Rotary club may use to showcase the young people’s work, let the club know. Only forenames will be used.
