The Fountain Workshop, who installed and maintain the Mirror Pool Fountains in the multi award winning City Park, are launching a competition to find the best photograph of the fountains in action. The competition is open to all and the prize for overall winner will be a photography workshop. The winner and runners up will also be treated to a tour of the plant room where the fountains are operated.
Participants can choose a range of features in the Mirror Pool, such as the arching jets which people love to run through and try to stay dry; the vertical jets that surround the pool; or maybe even the main fountain, which can reach 100 feet in the air. In the evening, the dozens of LED lights turn the fountains an array of bright and attractive colours, whilst later in the evening, the four laser lights create a fantastic light show on the Mirror Pool floor.
David Bracey, Managing Director of The Fountain Workshop said “the Mirror Pool is a fantastic addition to Bradford and we are proud to have been, and to continue to be, a part of the city. This water feature is a technical triumph with over 100 individual fountains, 4984 metres of pipework, and 587,000 litres of water which is recirculated every 3 hours and 9 minutes. We hope that this competition highlights the beauty of the Mirror Pool.”
Jonny Noble, City Centre Manager says “since City Park and the Mirror Pool opened in March 2012, we have seen on average over five million people using the space every year, that’s 30 million visits! We have hosted dozens of high profile events and seen the space welcomed by people from Bradford, and from much further afield. It continues to be a place of huge civic importance and pride and I am very lucky to have been involved with the operation of City Park for almost five years!”
The competition starts on Easter Weekend and will run until the 31 May 2018. Entries can be sent using the hashtag #TFWLPhotoComp to @fountainslive on Twitter or @fountainworkshop on Instagram. You can find full entry terms and conditions at www.fountains.co.uk.
