As part of its mission to preserve and promote the region’s fortified heritage sites, the partners of the project ‘Walls and Gardens’, which is partly funded by Essex County Council, have organised a free-of-charge amateur photography competition. It is open from now until December 15.

There will be prizes for the top 20 winners including digital cameras and multi-media tablets.
