Lostwithiel’s Heritage Seasonal Photography Competition

Lostwithiel Museum Association (LMA) is producing another fundraising 2020 Calendar for sale locally and online in early Autumn 2019.

The theme is “Lostwithiel Heritage” and we are launching the photography competition now to give entrants the opportunity to capture Lostwithiel’s heritage in all the seasons. “Lostwithiel’s Heritage” is open to the interpretation of the photographer and could feature interior, exterior or more rural aspects of Lostwithiel’s heritage.

Once all the pictures have been entered, the best 13 photographs – selected by the judges – will take pride of place in the Calendar for 2020, one for each month, and one for the cover.

The 13 winners will be presented with a calendar and a year’s free membership to the museum.

The professionally designed and printed calendar will be sold in aid of Lostwithiel Museum Association which is a charity* run by volunteers & funded by donations, fundraising, Town Heritage Walks and grants and all profits from calendar sales will be used to help maintain & develop the museum.
