EAST Devon District Council has launched a competition to find the best photographs of the local countryside for its Wild East Devon 2019 calendar.

In September 2018, the chief executive of East Devon District Council, Mark Williams, will lead a judging panel with Councillor Tom Wright, East Devon’s Environment portfolio holder and local photographer, Matt Wilson.

The winning entries will feature in the 2019 Wild East Devon Countryside calendar, which will be available to purchase at East Devon District Council’s offices and at Seaton Wetlands.

Councillor Wright said: “Last year we had over 100 photographs entered into the competition and the standard was fantastic. The winners included images of Ladram Bay, a beaver on the River Otter and a festive Robin taken at East Devon’s Seaton Wetlands. I’m looking forward to seeing this year’s entries and choosing 12 photos, which sum up East Devon’s outstanding countryside.’’

The competition opens on Sunday, July 1 and entries can be sent until Friday, August 31. All photographs must be taken in East Devon and can be of views, wildlife, wildflowers or trees. Entrants can enter up to three of their best, high resolution photographs in the competition by emailing them to wild@eastdevon.gov.uk

All entries must include the entrant’s name, address, age if under 18 and a photo caption including where the photo was taken. Images must be high resolution and landscape orientation. Images which include people must have appropriate consent to use the image.

By entering photos you are consenting to Wild East Devon using your images without a photo credit for marketing purposes.
