If you love taking pictures on your phone or camera while you’re on tour in your motorhome, Campaign for National Parks’ (CNP) photography competition could be of interest.

This year’s competition will be themed around climate change in National Parks. Entrants are being invited to submit images that show the impact of climate change on England and Wales’ National Parks, along with the steps being taken to counter it.

The competition, which will run in partnership with Digital Photographer Magazine, is open to both professional and amateur photographers.

The competition includes three categories:

  • Campaign for National Photographer of the Year (21 years+)
  • Young Photographer of the Year (under 21 years old)
  • People’s Choice Award: Best Phone Photograph

The competition, which is now open, will run until 1 October 2021.

The People’s Choice Award is voted for by the public in October, while a judging panel will pick winners of the main and young photographer categories. Winners will then see their work published in both Digital Photographer Magazine and CNP’s Viewpoint.

CNP’s Chief Executive Anita Konrad said: “Landscapes feel the impact of climate change, but also have huge potential to mitigate against these changes – benefitting nature, people and climate.”

“For this year’s photography competition, we are looking for images which illustrate either the impact of climate change, or the role that National Parks in England and Wales can, and do, play in tackling climate change. We want to use striking images to connect people with how the climate emergency affects National Parks and the work underway to address this.”

She added: ​​”We want people to understand the impact of climate change in our National Parks, while showcasing the immense photography talent we know exists in National Parks up and down England and Wales. Not just established photographers, but also the next generation – and those who may not have SLR cameras, but enjoy taking photos on their smartphone.  We’re excited to see what submissions we receive.”
