A new Photography Competition run by the Quantock Landscape Partnership Scheme is launched today, Thursday 22nd April 2021.

There are 3 categories, all of which will 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 want to look a little 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.

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 qlps@somerset.gov.uk 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.
