Send us your photos of Welwyn Garden City!

TODAY, the WHT is calling on residents to help celebrate a landmark birthday for WGC – and to make it snappy.

The town founded by Ebenezer Howard in 1920 turns 90 this year, and a series of celebrations and events will be held throughout 2010 marking the occasion.

And we’re asking residents; what does WGC mean to you in 2010?

We’ve teamed up with Oaklands College to call all budding photographers in the area to submit their pictures for a competition in recognition of this historic year for WGC.

From now until May 28, we want you to start snapping the areas, objects and people that you think symbolise modern-day WGC, plus write a statement of no more than 100 words of why your picture sums up the town for you.

The best 40 pictures will be featured at an exhibition at Oaklands College in WGC on June 21.

There are two categories you can enter – 14 to 17 year olds and 18 plus – and judges will select a winner from both. Top prize is �150, with runners up getting �75.
