Following on from last year's incredibly successful photo competition we're pleased to say our 2018 photo competition is now open. In total 17 winning images will be selected for our 2019 calendar and this year's Christmas cards. Photos must be taken in the Lake District or Cumbria.

To enter please download a Photographic Competition entry form here. (Do not fill in the form if it opens in your browser window because the data may be lost. Instead save the blank form and open it with Acrobat Reader or Acrobat before filling it in.)

Email this form with the photos listed in it to: [email protected]

Each winner will receive a complementary set of Christmas cards and 2019 calendar and given full photography credits on their winning image on the back of cards or underneath calendar images.

We're running the competition until 15th June 2018 to give you a chance to capture some wild and wonderful scenes. Winning images will be shortlisted by staff, chosen by members and then finally we will run a public vote to select the overall winner which will become the calendar front cover. 

All entries will be shared in our Facebook album 'Photo Competition 2018'.


Happy snapping!
