Fireworks photographic competition tonight

BUDDING photographers of all ages are invited to get snapping at the fireworks event at Hatfield House tonight (Thursday).

An amazing competition, where the winners will see their picture reproduced in the WHT’s Times Magazine, displayed in Campus West and used for publicity for next year’s firework display, is being launched.

We’re not only looking for pictures of the amazing displays high in the sky but also pictures of your friends and family enjoying the evening.

The contest is being run by Welwyn Hatfield Council and backed by the Welwyn Hatfield Times, and is open to all amateur photographers.

Two age categories will be judged – under 16s, and 16 and above.
