Judges are looking for inspiring images that capture the beauty of the National Park – all while being active.

Photographs that include people are encouraged, but stunning images of the landscape taken while people are out enjoying the National Park are also welcomed.First prize is £250, second prize is £150 and third prize is £50.

Laura Warren, events and engagement officer for the national park, said: “September and early October are a beautiful time of year to take pictures of the national park, with amazing sunsets and an array of colours in the tree scape.

“People may have a picture on their mobile phone of the national park taken over the summer, so please do consider sending it in to our judging team. We’ve had a steady stream of entries so far, but want to encourage more people to make the most of these autumn days and take some great snaps.”
