Your brief

The Yorkshire Dales has a unique charm and beauty - a landscape and people like no other. Windswept moors, verdant dales crisscrossed with drystone walls, traditional farming communities and bustling market towns. The Dales have inspired countless artists over the centuries, and we are now inviting you to pick up your camera and capture what the Yorkshire Dales means to you, be it the people, the landscape, or the wildlife.

Seek out a new perspective on the Dales – find a new angle on a classic scene, head off the beaten path, or tell a fresh story with your photographs.

Thirty-five finalists will be selected from the entries by our panel of judges, whose work will be included in our gallery exhibition, which will run from 18th – 30th June.

Visitors to the exhibition will then be invited to vote for their favourite. The overall winning entry, as voted for by the public, will receive a prize of a £100 photographic voucher and a Yorkshire Hamper. Twelve images from the final 35 will be selected by the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust for their 2025 Calendar.
