PHOTOGRAPHY COMPETITION FOR PARENTS AND CHILDREN “A GAZE TO LOVE QUINTA DOS INGLESES”




The Association SOS Quinta dos Ingleses is launching a photography competition between June 21st and July 10th 2023, where parents and their children can participate. Our aim is to raise awareness to the environmental importance of the Quinta as a natural habitat for various species of plants and animals, as well as its vital connection to the Carcavelos beach. The competition will have the biodiversity (animal and plant species) of the Quinta dos Ingleses as a theme.


The prize is a surf lesson for the two participants of the winning team. The lesson will take place in Carcavelos Beach and will be provided by surf instructor Pipa (Filipa Leandro), in collaboration with Junior Surf World Champion Kika (Francisca Veselko).


Pipa and her daughter Kika are one of the Carcavelos families fighting for the preservation of the Quinta dos Ingleses so that it can become a semi-naturalized urban park that can benefit all of us and be enjoyed by everybody.


If you have never walked in Quinta dos Ingleses, have a look at the main trail here or explore the map.
