Photogratree Competition: Results!
The results of our 2020 Photogratree competition are in. Many thanks to our judge, nature photographer Luke Blazejewski.
Of the winning entry, Luke writes ‘I love how the bright golden sky reflecting on the cold, snowy ground creates an idyllic countryside scene. The tree is perfectly situated within its landscape and the church tower in the background harks back to the compositional style of the Romantics, and celebrates our relationship with the natural world.’
Congratulations to photographer Jacqui Ruddock (@JacquiRuddock) who told us: ‘I love seeing this tree outside my house change through the seasons.’
The UK has legislated for net-zero emissions by 2050. Trees are important for the sequestering of carbon and the UK Committee on Climate Change has called for three billion to be planted over the next thirty years.
Friends of the Earth is campaigning nationally to double tree cover across the UK. Manchester Friends of the Earth are now planning to work across Greater Manchester to increase awareness, advocacy and public engagement in practical action to help support this cause.
