We are once again searching for the finest views the Lake District and Cumbria has to offer and in promotion of our ‘Dark Skies Cumbria’ project, we've added a new category to our 2019 Photography Competition for night time or ‘astrophotography’.

Our photography competition is open to all ages and abilities. All images will be fully credited and winners featured on our Christmas cards and 2020 calendar. All winners will receive complimentary copies of our Christmas cards and 2020 calendar.

Rachel Dorrington, Fundraising Officer,

As well as beautiful starry skies we’re looking for scenes of the Lake District and Cumbria from all seasons so dig back through your photos to find wonderful winters, stunning springs, sun-drenched summers and awesome autumns!
