Two Community Spaces projects were among the finalists in a Big Lottery photography competition.
Communities in Focus launched last November and ran on Local World’s This is and localpeople websites for four weeks.
The competition had two categories, one for inspiring images of community life and the other for photos of Big Lottery funded projects making a difference. Entries were made via Cam360, designed by Media Trust as a place to share and publish images.
The Community Spaces projects are the Whitemoss Community Multi-Use Games Area in Manchester (above left) and the Leechwell Garden Development in Totnes, Devon (right).
All the shortlisted entries are featured on the Big Lottery website and give a fabulous snapshot of communities in action across the country.
BIG’s England Director Dharmendra Kanani said: “The number and range of entries to the Communities in Focus competition is a reminder of the goodness that resides in communities across England; the images paint a picture of hope, ambition and communities driving change.”
