Take part in our photo competition: Bedfordshire - A Changing Landscape Barry Halton

This year CPRE Bedfordshire celebrates 30 years of standing up for Bedfordshire’s countryside and greenspaces. To mark this, we are running a photography competition open to all, to build a picture of Bedfordshire’s much-loved countryside and greenspaces, and glimpse how these are changing. The theme is: Bedfordshire - A Changing Landscape.

Bedfordshire is a beautiful county, with landscapes and green spaces that are enormously valued by the people who live here, yet our landscapes change, both throughout the year and over time.

Entrants are encouraged to consider the ways that Bedfordshire’s landscape, countryside and greenspaces can be seen to change, through natural or human factors.

On our 30th anniversary, it felt fitting to focus on how Bedfordshire’s landscapes change over time - a chance to consider the past, present and future of our beautiful county.

The competition is open to CPRE members and non-members, so keep a camera to hand when you’re out and about.

First prize - £100, second prize - £50 M&S vouchers. The deadline for entries is 16th October 2017.
