Photography Competition

It’s that time of year again!  We’ve opened our annual Photography Competition for Seaton Valley residents and we are now accepting submissions.

You can submit up to 10 photographs that must have been taken within the boundary of Seaton Valley.  The theme is:  Pictures that represent the place where you live.


Five category winners will each receive a £50 Gift Card.  The categories are:

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

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

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 expensive cameras.

To enter, email your photographs to:

Photographs should be submitted at either a jpeg or png.  Where possible please email your submissions as attachments to your email.

The closing date for entries to be submitted is Sunday 3 April.

We look forward to seeing your photographs.
