Snap away your January blues and treasure your special moments in a new national competition.

The UK National Parks and Campaign for National Parks (CNP)  has launched a new photography competition to celebrate the 70th anniversary of National Parks.

Around the theme of a ‘Moment in time’, this competition comes 70 years since the 1949 Act of Parliament which established the family of National Parks in England and Wales, including our beloved Peak District landscapes.

Pictures can highlight anything you treasure, whether it’s the incredible history of world famous heritage sites, the people, the wildlife or the landscapes, and can be of any of the UK’s 15 National Parks.

Andrew Hall of CNP, the national charity dedicated to the English and Welsh National Parks, said: “We are really looking forward to paying homage to the legacy of the men and women who fought for our access to the most beautiful countryside through this competition”

We are so lucky to have some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes on our doorstep. Whether it is the rugged coast of Pembrokeshire or morning mist in Exmoor we can’t wait to see what people can do with a camera!”

The winner will receive a feature spread in Campaign for National Parks’ membership magazine, Viewpoint.

To enter – simply read the terms and conditions and tag your images on social media with the hashtag #NP70Moments

Anna Marriott of the UK National Parks said: “We welcome everyone to share their National Park ‘moments in time’ with us this January. Whether it’s a spectacular dark sky or a selfie on a walk, there’s no better way of kicking those January blues than with a celebration of the UK’s beautiful National Parks.”
