Photography Competition 2017

Big, varied and home to millions, be it people or wildlife: Essex is a productive hunting ground for photographers seeking to capture that perfect picture.

Our competition has six categories. We are inviting individual entrants to submit a maximum of three entries, distributed among the categories however they wish. No single image may be entered into more than one category. Pictures must have been taken in Essex, in 2017.

What's on

Our visitor centres organise a regular programme of events and activities for adults and families. The Trust has fourteen Local Groups across the county that organise a programme of walks and talks for local members. Non-members are welcome at these events. Booking is essential for most centre events, so make sure you call or visit the centre in advance to avoid disappointment.
