Enjoying the Somerset Countryside - Photography Competition 2019 - closing date now extended to 30th September 2019

Our 2019 photo competition has 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. Two judges, CPRE Chair Chris Lewis and professional photographer, Kit Houghton, will then choose their favourite. The winner will be announced at our AGM in October and they will receive a prize of £100.
Entries should be emailed as an attachment to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by midnight on 30th September 2019 (this is an extension to the previous closing date) along with the following information:
Photographer’s name
Email address
Telephone number
Location of photo
Date photo taken
Name of photograph or caption (no more than 20 words)
Full terms and conditions of the competition can be downloaded below.  Good luck and have fun!
