The 15 National Parks in the UK have launched a photo competition, with the winner receiving a pair of hiking books.
The UK’s National Parks have some of the most stunning views in Europe. If you have a favourite view now is your chance to take a photo and have a chance to win some great outdoor gear.
The competition will be judged by TV adventurer Ben Fogle, who is president of the Campaign for National Parks (CNP), Kathryn Cook from the UK Association of National Park Authorities (UK ANPA) and Emily Carr from its partner organisation, outdoor gear specialist Merrell.
Ben said: ”The UK’s National Parks offer some truly gold medal-winning views, which is why I think the UK National Parks team’s idea to seek out fans’ best photos is a great idea. I look forward to seeing some stunning views and to judging the winning landscape in May.”
The competition will run until May 10 and will be open to all who upload an image to a special page our website here: http://www.nationalparks.gov.uk/visiting/winninglandscapes.htm.
The winning image will be picked from a shortlist of up to 10 photographs. The lucky winner will get to pick footwear (one pair) from Merrell’s spring/summer 2012 collection.
The 15 members of the UK’s family of National Parks are: Brecon Beacons, The Broads, Cairngorms, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Lake District, Loch Lomond and The Trossachs, New Forest, Northumberland, North York Moors, Peak District, Pembrokeshire Coast, Snowdonia, South Downs and the Yorkshire Dales.
