Photographic Competition - Town & Country Trees

To celebrate the splendour of our trees and woodlands the Yorkshire Agricultural Society is hosting a photographic competition to encourage people to photograph their favourite urban and rural trees and woodlands in the UK.

Trees are a vital part of our lives.  They give us oxygen, store carbon, stabilise the soil and give life to the worlds wildlife.  Trees absorb pollutants from the air, provide shelter from solar radiation, reduce noise, help slow the rate of global warming, help prevent flooding and soil erosion as well as providing a sustainable and renewable raw material for industry and energy generation.

As well as practical and environmental factors, trees and woodlands provide spectacular scenery and give us plenty of opportunities for leisure activities such as walking, cycling, horse riding, orienteering, camping, caravanning, fishing, bird watching and a whole host of other activities enjoyed by people of all ages. 

There are 2 categories, Town & Country, photos can be either landscape scenes or close up / macro photos, but the main emphasis and focus of your photos should always be the trees.

32 finalist photos will be selected and their photos displayed in the Forestry Pavilion at the Great Yorkshire Show where visitors will vote for their favourite photographs during Tuesday 11 - Thursday 13 July, after which the winners will be announced. 

Each category winner will receive £50 worth of Amazon vouchers for photographic equipment and the overall winners’ prize will be £100 worth of Amazon vouchers.  Each of the 32 finalists will receive a complimentary ticket to the Great Yorkshire Show, so they can view their photo.

To enter the competition please download and complete the entry form and send a 7”x5” photo (please also supply a high resolution jpeg file so the photograph can be enlarged for display at the show if required).

Entries in the 2016 woodland photo competition cannot be submitted again for the 2017 competition.  You may submit as many entries as you like.

Closing date:  2nd June 2017
