We're launching an amateur nature photography competition on Monday, May 10 to coincide with the start of Mental Health Awareness Week. All proceeds from the competition, which features a grand prize of original artwork by Highland artist Reina Edmiston, will support Mikeysline as we deliver peer-to-peer support and crisis prevention to those in need across the Highlands.
This competition, which is open to all non-professional photographers, will run for two weeks before closing on Monday May 24. Mikeysline staff will then select one winner to receive the prize of ‘Tidelines’, a painting donated by Highland artist Reina Edmiston.
We're inviting participants to make a donation of £5 per submission on our JustGiving page at justgiving.com/fundraising/MikeyslinePhotoComp. You can then submit your photos either by using the hashtag #MikeyslinePhotoComp when sharing your picture on Instagram and Twitter, or by including your picture in a comment on the Mikeysline Facebook page.

Clare Gordon, a support worker at Mikeysline, said: “This year’s Mental Health Awareness Week is all about the benefits of connecting with nature. Exploring the outdoors can help us all to relax and reflect, which is why Mikeysline is inviting everyone to head outside with friends and family and capture its beauty on camera.
“Whether you’re taking photos in a forest, at the park, or in your garden, it’s our hope that you’ll feel the positive impact of being surrounded by nature.”
