National land management charity the Land Trust has launched its 2019 annual photography competition, with this year’s theme being ‘The Land Trust in Colour’.
Last year’s 2018 ‘Land Trust Through a Lens’ competition saw hundreds of entries submitted, before being whittled down to the final 12 that featured in the calendar.
Photography enthusiasts and budding shutterbugs may submit up to 10 entries showcasing the changing colours of nature through the seasons. Any entries submitted must have been taken on one of the Land Trust’s sites to be eligible to win.
The competition will be open until October 25 2019 and the overall winner will win £100 in photography vouchers and will appear on the front page of the Land Trust’s 2020 calendar. Runners up will win £25 in vouchers as well as having their photograph featured in the calendar.
Last year the competition had some outstanding entries, spanning dozens of Land Trust parks, nature reserves and woodlands.
Alan Carter, Director of Portfolio Management at the Land Trust said:
“We want people to get outdoors this year and capture the beauty of nature through all the different seasons.
“So many of us don’t spend as much time outdoors as we should, but this is an opportunity to track down your nearest Land Trust space and capture the wonderful colours of the landscape.
“You don’t have to be a professional photographer or have a professional camera. Most of us have the ability to take great pictures on our phones.”
Unlike last year, the competition will run throughout the majority of 2019 to give people the chance to get out and take their photographs throughout the course of the year.
To enter, submissions should be sent as an attachment or shareable link to firstname.lastname@example.org or uploaded to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram tagging the Land Trust and using the hashtag #LandTrustInColour.
A full list of terms and conditions can be found here and must be read before submitting entries and can be found here.

Land, in particular public open space and wildlife, has always been my passion and here at the Land Trust I get to make a difference. I enjoy covering a large area of England and Wales and seeing a wide variety of sites. No site is the same, so it makes my job interesting.
