My photo doesn't really do justice to the rhododendrons at Bicton. I'm sure you can do better
Bicton Park, just a few miles north-east of Budleigh Salterton, is one of my favourite places to visit. Its botanical gardens containing over 1,000 specimen trees and laid out to designs which include 18th century Italian and 19th century American influences are a real treat not only for keen horticulturalists but also for photographers.
The deadline of 31 May 2010 is now approaching for Bicton's 2011 Calendar Photo Competition. So if you're a keen photographer you're invited to submit your photos - a maximum of three per person - for entry into the competition.
A winner will be selected for each month and for the front cover of the calendar, and you are asked to suggest a proposed caption with each photo and email these along with your name, address and telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org (Max 8MB).
The winners, as well as having their photo or photos featured in Bicton Park's 2011 calendar, will receive a £20 Bicton shop voucher for each photo selected.
