We're delighted to announce the winners of our 2020 photography competition. This year we had over 400 images submitted, and with social distancing measures in place, the focus was on past visits to the National Park. Winners were voted for by members, staff and Trustees. These are comprised of 12 images to feature in our 2021 calendar, five images for use on our 2020 Christmas Cards, and a special ‘Under 16’s’ category.

Judging was incredibly hard. Indeed, there were many, many fantastic entries so we'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to submit their images. We thought you might like to see more of the entries we received this year; we've really enjoyed seeing each and every one of them.

Winning images will be featured on our 2020 Christmas card packs and 2021 calendar. These will be available to order from late September onwards. Money raised from the sale of the calendars and cards goes towards supporting the Lake District and Cumbria’s world class landscapes and heritage. Winning entrants will be credited, and will receive a complimentary set of Christmas cards and a 2021 calendar.
