Thank you Glasgow for an absolute stoater of a day yesterday for the launch of Glasgow Science Festival 2013 on the Clipperton Project’s Floating Laboratory.  It was a beautiful day floating down the canal and anticipating what’s shaping up to be a fantastic couple of weeks.

We’ve been absolutely thrilled with your entries to our Dear Green Places Parklife competition. Don’t know what I’m talking about? It’s not too late – read all about the competition here and a tribute to Kelvingrove Park.

The entries will be used to create a special, weegie-made exhibition for ‘Glasgow, Naturally‘ at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum.  And if that’s not enough to get you snapping… there’s also the chance to win PRIZES!  Shiny, delicious prizes!

The top over 18s entry will receive a meal for four at the acclaimed Sapporo Teppanyaki Restaurant in Glasgow’s Merchant City, winner of ‘Best Non-European Restaurant’ at last year’s Glasgow Restaurant Awards.

And for the young folks: the under 18s prize is a full set of camping gear for four people!  A perfect excuse to get outside and enjoy some of Scotland’s dear green places.

The deadline for submitting your photos is this Friday 7th June. Send your favourite photies, captions and memories to: sciencefestival@glasgow.ac.uk.

According to a popular weather-reporting website, Glasgow is forecast to remain in the sunshine for the rest of the week, so grab that camera/phone while you can and hit the park!  And if it does rain (EVERYBODY TOUCH WOOD!), have a sift through those old photo albums – images from Glasgow parks past and present are very welcome.
