Get snappy with South Downs images


PHOTOGRAPHERS hoping to win the South Downs National Park’s Life in the Landscapes competition need to get snappy as entries close on October 15.

But there’s good news for those still hoping to win because autumn is one of the best times to take pictures in the National Park.

The winning image will need to capture the story of the people who live, work and visit the South Downs National Park. Prizes for the competition include £150 in vouchers to spend at Petersfield Photographic, a year’s subscription to Outdoor Photography magazine and a day of landscape photography training with photographer Simon Parsons.

Nick Heasman, a competition judge and Western Area Manager for the South Downs National Park, said: “Dramatic autumn light makes September and October among the best months to take photos in the South Downs, but don’t forget that shots of beautiful landscapes only tell half the National Park’s story. We’ll be looking for pictures that capture the spirit of the people who live, work and spend their time here.”
