The UK National Parks and Campaign for National Parks have launched a new photography competition to celebrate the 70th anniversary of National Parks in the UK.
Around the theme of a ‘Moment in time’, the competition comes 70 years since the 1949 Act of Parliament that began the family of National Parks in the UK, that today includes beloved landscapes such as Exmoor, Dartmoor and the Peak District.
Pictures could explore the incredible history of world-famous heritage sites, the people, wildlife and landscapes of the UK’s 15 National Parks.
Tim Braund, Head of Communication and Information at Exmoor National Park, said: “This is a great chance for everyone to share their favourite Exmoor National Park moments in time this January. Whether it’s a spectacular dark sky or a selfie on a walk, there’s no better way of kicking those January blues than with a celebration of the UK’s beautiful National Parks.”
Andrew Hall of Campaign for National Parks, the national charity dedicated to the English and Welsh National Parks, said: “We are really looking forward to paying homage to the legacy of the men and women that fought for our access to the most beautiful countryside through this competition.
“We are so lucky to have some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes on our doorstep. Whether it is the rugged coast of Pembrokeshire or morning mist in Exmoor, we can’t wait to see what you can do with a camera!”
The winner will receive a feature spread in Campaign for National Parks’ membership magazine, Viewpoint.
To enter, participants simply have to read the terms and conditions and tag their images on social media with the hashtag #NP70Moments
