Our #DevonNature Photography Competition is OPEN for entries

Enter LHC Design’s #DevonNature photography competition celebrating the region’s landscape, wildlife and people and join us in supporting the Devon Environment Foundation.

There are two categories with some great prizes. Each entry will cost £10 and 100% of entry fees will go to the Devon Environment Foundation, which is doing so much to protect and restore Devon’s natural environment.

There are already lots of brilliant environmental initiatives happening in Devon – rewilding, regenerative agriculture, reintroduction of keystone species, and marine permaculture. But many of these initiatives are fledgling projects that need the financial support of the Devon Environment Foundation to fully maximise their potential for positive, long term impact. Our photography competition – and you – will be helping the Foundation to reach their ambition to protect and restore at least 30% of Devon’s land and water by 2030.

Photo Category 1:
Devon Nature

Devon’s diverse natural habitats include woodlands, wetlands, moorlands, meadows, hedgerows, rivers, estuaries, and coastline. We’re looking for images which convey the beauty of the land, the water or the wildlife. The views, stories, seasons, creatures, transformations… whatever excites, delights, or even dismays you about the natural Devon environment today, we want to see your best photos.

Photo Category 2:
People in nature

We’d love to see photos which tell a story about people interacting with the Devon natural environment, living, working, protecting, enjoying, contributing… and plenty more we probably haven’t thought of.
