Staffordshire's Countryside on Camera

Poppy Field Burston Poppy Field Burston Robert Cartwright

CPRE Staffordshire is launching a photography competition to celebrate its 85th year with a view to producing a 2021 calendar depicting Staffordshire's wonderful and diverse countryside.

We will be looking for a variety of locations, seasons and subject matter (e.g. woodlands, waterways, farming, wildlife). Shortlisted photographs will be displayed at There Is No Planet B! Stafford's Green Arts Festival in St. Chad's church during the 2020 February half term (17th to 21st February) for public voting.

The top three winning photographers will receive a prize of £50, £25 and £10 respectively and there will, of course, be further opportunity for both the winners and other photographers to have their photographs featured in a calendar to be on sale to CPRE Staffordshire members, supporters and the general public.

We look forward to receiving your entries. Please read the rules below and get snapping!
