Quantock Landscape Partnership Scheme Photo Competition

Quantock Landscape Partnership Scheme Photo Competition

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

The competition is part of one of 23 projects the LPS will be delivering over the next 5 years in and around the Quantock Hills AONB and surrounding area.

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 from www.qlps.org/downloads 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.

QLPS Manager Bill Jenman said “As more normal life returns to the Quantocks, and people get out and about more over the coming year, I’m looking forward to seeing some images that really capture the essence of the people and communities that make this area so very special”.
