collect at least one photo of the harbour every day for a year.

Throughout the
project more than 1,500 photos were submitted by over 100 contributors.

selection of the entries have now been brought together for a special
exhibition at Emsworth Museum.

Displayed in monthly panels, the photos show the
changing seasons and the variety of activities and habitats that characterize
Chichester Harbour. In addition four of the main contributors, John Tweddell,
Peter Arnold, Jake Jacobs and Juliet Walker will have their work showcased in
extra panels.

Siún Cranny Director of Chichester Harbour Conservancy said: ‘As well as involving the community this project shows the different ways
people enjoy Chichester Harbour, from sailing to walking and of course through
art and photography.

‘We are grateful to everyone who took part in the project
and feel that this selection of photos shows the balance between the humans and
wildlife that all share this special area.’

The exhibition will be open every weekend at Emsworth Museum
during October, from 10.30am to 4.30pm Saturdays and from 2.30pm to 4.30pm on Sundays.

Entry is free of charge.
