British woodland is full of fantastic wildlife and seasonal landscapes waiting to be caught on camera. The VisitWoods Woodland Photography Competition celebrates everything that makes British woods and trees special. We will be looking for images that portray the beauty, atmosphere, fun, environmental value and sheer splendour of our woods and trees.
Use the VisitWoods search to find woods near you, and be inspired to have fun and adventures in the woods. There are no age restrictions on visiting woods, or on this competition. Don’t forget to take your camera each time you go!
Supported by the Disabled Photographers’ Society – access needn’t hold you back from photographing nature. Use VisitWoods to find the wood most suited to your needs, and visit www.disabledphotographers.co.uk for advice. The Disabled Photographers’ Society is a charity to help and encourage people with disabilities to enjoy the therapeutic joys of photography.
People & Leisure
We love nothing more than people enjoying woods, so in this category we’re looking for images of folk making the most of the woods. VisitWoods is all about people from all walks of life exploring woodland, so show us that diversity!
Ancient Woods and Modern Wonders
We’d love to see your shots of woods old or new to see how they create idyllic spots across the landscape. Show us what you think makes them beautiful, mysterious, breathtaking or peaceful.
Nature and Wildlife
Woodlands are home to abundant wildlife from birds and bees to bugs and butterflies. The perfect category to show intricate details of plants, relationships between species and habitats or portraits of amazing wildlife.
Scenery and Seasons
Woods are one of the greatest places to see the seasons change so use this category to showcase the magic of woodland scenes throughout the year.
Photographs must obviously feature woodland as its subject, or be taken within woodland. Your photo must feature a wood included in the VisitWoods database, and must be uploaded to that wood’s page.
