Library looking for young snappers

Worcester Editorial 26th Mar, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016

TEENAGERS in Worcester are being urged to take part in a brand new photography competition.

St John’s Library has opened the event, which closes on Saturday (March 29) at 4pm, to 13 to 19-year-olds with all entries going on display in the library throughout April.

The themes for the competition are ‘Worcester City’ and ‘Local Wildlife’ and all photos having to be a minimum size of 7x5in.

Residents are invited to view the exhibition and vote for their top three images by 4pm on Saturday, April 26.

Prizes include spending a time with a city reporter and having a photo published in the local press, with runners up receiving a book token.

Gill Robinson, library customer adviser at St John’s, said: “We’re really keen to encourage more 13 to 19 year olds to use the library service and we’re hoping to see more teenagers in the library as a result of this competition.

“We’re really excited the winner will get to spend some time with a reporter as well.”
