South Downs Photo Competition: Make The Most Of Autumn Colours & Capture The Beauty Of The Park's Hundred Mile Route

The clock is counting down to the deadline for the South Downs National Park's annual Photo Competition and the chance to win up to £250.

Judges are looking for inspiring images that capture the beauty of the National Park – all while being active.

Whether it's walking in the woods, cycling, horseriding, walking the dog, counting butterflies, bird-watching or having a picnic, the judges looking for images that show people out enjoying the landscape.

Photographs that include people are encouraged, but images of the landscape taken while people are out enjoying the National Park are also welcomed.

Laura Warren, Events and Engagement Officer for the National Park, said:

"September and early October are a beautiful time of year to take pictures of the National Park, with amazing sunsets and an array of colours in the treescape.

"People may have a picture on their mobile phone of the National Park taken over the summer, so please do consider sending it in to our judging team. 


"We've had a steady stream of entries so far, but want to encourage more people to make the most of these autumn days and take some great snaps! 

Landscape, wildlife, history, people – there's so much material to inspire the photographer." 

First prize is £250, second prize is £150 and third prize is £50. This year the judges are also looking for images capturing the beautiful wildlife of the South Downs and the winner will receive £100.

Entries close at 12:00 GMT on Friday 18 October 2019. CLICK HERE to download an entry form.

Throughout COVID-19 isolation, everyone has become aware of the supportive and stimulating power of music. Although many people want to learn, they have no access to musical instruments or tuition - especially with schools and shops currently closed.
