A photo competition looking for inspiring images that capture the beauty of the South Downs National Park is now open.
A first prize of £250 is on offer to the amateur or professional photographer who best captures this year’s theme of ‘Experience the natural world’.
A second prize of £150 and a third prize of £50 are also on offer and, for the first time this year, the judges are also looking for images capturing the amazing wildlife of the South Downs – and the winner will receive £100.
Steve Watkins, editor of Outdoor Photography magazine, and award-winning photographers Rachael Talibart and Finn Hopson are returning to judge the 2019 competition.
Whether it’s walking, cycling, horseriding, walking the dog, counting butterflies, bird-watching or having a picnic, the judges are looking for images that show people out enjoying the amazing landscape.
Photographs that include people are encouraged, but stunning images taken while people are out enjoying and being active in the National Park are also welcomed.
Entries close on Friday 18th October 2019. Find out more and download the entry form at www.southdowns.gov.uk/enter-the-south-downs-photo-competition/
