South West Coast Path Photo Competition
Once again the South West Coast Path Team is inviting photographers and walking enthusiasts to enter their best pictures of the Coast Path in our annual photo competition. The aim is to reflect the wonderful landscapes and wildlife found around our coastline, which makes this one of the world's greatest walks.
For inspiration, take a look at former Wildlife Photographer of Year Ben Osbourne's wildlife and nature photography masterclass here. Ben is this year's professional judge alongside the South West Coast Path team.
This year's winning photographs will feature in the 2015 South West Coast Path calendar. The 2014 calendar featuring last year's winners will be on sale from the SW Coast Path Association webshop and lots of local shops (including larger branches of WH Smiths) from July 2013.
Each copy sold helps the South West Coast Path Association raise money to make the path even better.
1st prize: Thanks to the generosity of Cornish Cottage Holidays, the photographer of the picture chosen for the cover of the 2015 calendar will win a £700 voucher towards a stay in any of their stunning holiday homes. You can find out more about these by clicking on their advert. They will also receive the collection of runner-up prizes.
Runner-up prizes: The photographers whose pictures are chosen for the other 11 months of the 2015 calendar will win:
- Annual membership of the SW Coast Path Association
- Your choice from the wide range of award-winning guidebooks for walking, trekking, climbing and mountaineering, cycle touring and hill and mountain skills, produced by Cicerone press.
- A copy of the 2015 calendar featuring their photo.
We are grateful for the support of our media partners below who are helping to promote the competition in their county magazines and will also announce the winners early next year.
