LNBP Community Boating are pleased to announce the launch of their inaugural Photographic Competition
When LNBP – or the London Narrowboat Project as it was formerly known as – was first founded in 1981 by a group of teachers, youth workers and canal enthusiasts, one key ethos was to introduce children and young people to the enjoyment of our historic and beautiful canals and inland waterways.
LNBP’s Photographic Competition is designed to support and encourage development of photographic skills. It aims to encourage young people to experiment with photography, use digital or traditional methods of photography, show interpretation of their chosen topic, and express their ideas through the medium of photography
The theme for this year’s inaugural competition is ‘The Beauty of our Canals’.

Who can take part?

The competition is open to all young persons aged 7 to 18 years from any young people’s community group or organisation (i.e. Scout Groups, Girl Guides), or schools or colleges who have booked onto residential or day trips with LNBP Community Boating in 2019.
There are three age groups

  • Junior 7 to 10 years old
  • Intermediate 11 to 13 years old
  • Senior 14 to 18 years old



First prize for each category winner as awarded by our panel of judges will be a £50.00 Amazon Voucher, Certificate of Merit + £50.00 discount voucher for use by the individual’s organisation/group for a future booking with LNBP Community Boating.
