Final Call for QLPS Photo Competition

Published by Vickie Sellick on

Our Photography Competition is still live, but time is running out to enter. We welcome entries under the following headings, in black and white or in colour. We’re also really interested in any older photos you may have, as long as they haven’t been entered in any previous Quantock Hills photo competitions. We’ve really enjoyed meeting lots of you on the fun photo walks we have been running, and welcome any entries from photos taken on smartphones.

There are 3 categories, all of which encourage participants to think differently about the hills and the wider Quantock area. Rather than the traditional landscape photos of views from and of the hills, we are looking deeper and differently at the communities present in the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Landscape Partnership Scheme Area. 

The categories are;

Village Life– must be taken within a village or settlement in the Quantock Hills AONB and surrounding LPS area.

People of the Quantocks– an image representing the people of the Quantock Hills AONB and surrounding LPS area

Quantock Working– an image of working life within the Quantock Hills AONB and surrounding LPS area

The competition will run until the 31st March 2022, with photographs judged in April and winners being announced in May 2022. Entry forms are available here.

1st and 2nd prize winners in each category will win a £100 and £50 outdoor gear e-voucher respectively. There will also be a £50 e-voucher for the best picture submitted by a young person aged 16 or under (though young people’s pictures are also eligible for the main prizes).

Photos should be sent to along with a completed entry form which is available to download here along with full terms and conditions. Entrants must have received permission from any recognisable people in an image (or that of parent or guardian if a minor) for it to be entered into the competition.
