Photography Competition

Our annual Seaton Valley Photography Competition is now open for submissions.  The theme is ‘Pictures of where I live’.

The competition is open to all residents of Seaton Valley.  The pictures submitted must have been taken within the Seaton Valley boundary.

There are five categories, and you can submit up to 10 photographs to the competition.

The categories are:

  • Landscape
  • Wildlife
  • Village life
  • Under 18s
  • Under 10s


Village life can be people, buildings, events, or anything that shows life in one of the Seaton Valley villages.

The five category winners will each receive a £50 multi-store gift card.

Please don’t be put off entering if you don’t have the latest expensive equipment.  Most of us have cameras on our phones, and modern technology has meant that the qualities of these pictures are as good as some cameras.

The closing date for entries to be submitted is 31 March 2023.

Pictures should be submitted by email to

We look forward to seeing your photographs.
