Enjoying the Somerset Countryside - Photography Competition 2019

To coincide with Somerset Day on 11th May, we are launching our 2019 photo competition with the new theme of “Enjoying the Somerset Countryside”.  
 

Here in Somerset, we are lucky to have incredibly varied landscapes and wonderful countryside. We all know how getting out into the fresh air can lift our mood, so we want you to share your photos of your best times out with your family and friends (even four legged ones!). You could be walking the dog, riding your bike, having a picnic, attending a festival, picking blackberries, milking the cows, using traditional skills like thatching or hedge-laying, or quietly birdwatching or even playing pooh sticks  - the possibilities are endless! We would love to see people sending in their photos from across the whole county, to share just what our countryside means to us all. 

 
Entries are invited from amateur photographers who can submit up to three images to this free competition. The best entries will be displayed on CPRE Somerset’s website over the summer. Two judges, CPRE Chair Chris Lewis and professional photographer, Kit Houghton, will then choose their favourite. The winner will be announced at the charity’s AGM in October and they will receive a prize of £100.
