The Forestry Commission, Forestry England and Forest Research are looking for photo submissions of women working in forests for inclusion in a People’s Picture exhibition celebrating women in forestry.

The People’s Picture is a photography and design studio that produces a mosaic assembled from thousands of photos – with each photo telling a different story.

The piece of art, and thus the images will go on display at the forthcoming Women in Forestry, The Lumberjills Story exhibition at Grizedale Forest in the Lake District this May, until December.

The exhibition will also celebrate the contribution of the World War II Lumberjills (think the feminine of lumberjack), a group of women who played a vital role in maintaining the supply of timber during the Second World War.

People who have pictures of working Lumberjills from World War II are also invited to submit their pictures for display at the forthcoming exhibition, and women who don’t work in forestry are being asked to submit photos of themselves in a favourite forest spot or woodland place.

The submission deadline is March 31; photos can be submitted online to the People’s Picture.

There is no cap on the amount of photos that can be submitted.
