Still time to enter Merthyr photography competition

The closing date for St Tydfil Shopping Centre’s Pride of Merthyr photography competition is Friday 31st August, so there’s still time for the local community to submit pictures of their favourite places in the Merthyr area for the chance to win a selection of prizes.

This is the third year St Tydfil Shopping Centre has launched the competition and previous entries have showcased Cyfartha Castle and its grounds, Brecon Railway, Cefn Coed Viaduct, and many other fantastic locations.

In 2017, a photo taken by Sadie Cook of Pont-y-Cafnau Bridge, the oldest surviving iron bridge in the world, was chosen as the winner, and in 2016 a picture of Pontsticill Reservoir taken by Darren Edwards was the most popular.


Lee Simmonds, Centre Manager at St Tydfil Shopping Centre, commented:

“There are so many places and landmarks, in town and on the outskirts of Merthyr, that all contribute to making our town one of the most beautiful in the country and we’re looking forward to seeing what areas are highlighted this year.”

From all the entries received, 10 will be chosen to go on display in the centre and uploaded to its Facebook page for the local community to vote for the overall winner.

To submit a photograph, simply email it to [email protected] by Friday 31st August confirming the location, along with the photographer’s name, age and contact details.
