Photography Competition

We are holding our annual Seaton Valley Photography Competition in 2021.

The aim of the competition is to get residents of all ages out and about in the Valley capturing images.  The Theme for this year is – Pictures that represent the place where you live.

You don’t have to own an expensive camera to enter; most of us have cameras on our phones and enjoy taking photos.

There are five categories:

  • Under 10s
  • Under 18s
  • Landscape
  • Wildlife
  • Community

(Community could be images that show community spirit, events or support in the place where you live).

There is a £50 Amazon Gift Card for the winner of each category.

You can enter more than one photograph and submit photographs into different categories.  However, ten photographs is the maximum number of photographs that can be entered by an individual into the competition.
