LHC’s Devon Nature Photography Competition. Closes soon!

Enter our #DevonNature photography competition, celebrating the region’s landscape, wildlife and people – and join us in supporting the Devon Environment Foundation…and win some great prizes too!

There are two categories. An entry costs £10 and 100% of money raised will go to the Devon Environment Foundation, which is doing so much to protect and restore Devon’s natural environment. We’re delighted too that renowned Devon-based photographer, Juliette Mills, has agreed to be on our judging panel. See below for How to Enter and email your best photos to studio@lhc.net by 20 August.

Photo Category 1:
Devon Nature

Devon’s diverse natural habitats include woodlands, wetlands, moorlands, meadows, hedgerows, rivers, estuaries, and coastline. Send us you shots which show off 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.

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. Make sure you get their permission first!


Overall winner: A meal for two at one of Mitch Tonks’ celebrated fish restaurants, Rockfish.
Mitch is a co-founder of the Devon Environment Foundation and a member of the steering committee. (See below for full prize details).
