Photo competition

21st February 2022

The theme of this year’s photo competition is people and plants.

Here at CPRE Bedfordshire we love seeing pictures of Bedfordshire’s flora – from wildflowers to woodlands and hedgerows to fungi, but we love seeing people appreciating it even more!


So for this year’s competition we want to see images that capture people enjoying Bedfordshire’s varied plant life.


To get your creative juices flowing, examples of pictures that would fit the theme include a close up of hands touching bark, boots in autumn leaves, people giving scale to a bluebell wood, or children sowing wildflower seeds.

The winning entry will be used as the cover photo for the autumn edition of Bedfordshire Matters, a selection of the best of the rest will feature inside the magazine.

Please explore the Bedfordshire countryside responsibly – stick to the paths, keep dogs on leads and don’t pick wildflowers.
