Photography Competition

Seaton Valley Photography Competition 2024

We are thrilled to announce that the Seaton Valley Photography Competition for 2024 is officially open for submissions! This year, we invite you to capture the essence of Seaton Valley with the theme, ‘Pictures of where I live’.

Whether you’re a seasoned photographer or just starting out, this competition is open to all residents in Seaton Valley and any pictures submitted must have been taken within the Seaton Valley boundary.

Don’t let any lack of expensive photography equipment discourage you from participating. Today, most of us carry cameras right in our pockets – our smartphones! Thanks to modern technology, the quality of these pictures rivals that of some professional cameras.

 

So, seize this incredible opportunity to showcase your unique perspective and talent. We can’t wait to see the stunning images that will undoubtedly emerge from this competition. Let your creativity run wild as you capture the charm and hidden gems of Seaton Valley through your lens.

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).

Each of the five category winners will receive a £50 multi-store shopping gift card.
