The Photographic Angle regularly runs photographic competitions which are open and accessible to everyone, regardless of their location, ability, experience, equipment or age.

Each competition has a theme, chosen by our Head of Design, and we welcome submissions that illustrate this theme showcasing originality and a unique viewpoint. The competitions are free to enter and TPA enlists the help of an independent judge who is given the responsibility of selecting the winning entries. One photographer whose entry is deemed the best representation of the competition theme will be awarded a prize.

Throughout the year, our Head of Design will also choose a selection of the best entries submitted to various competition themes for inclusion in one of our future photographic exhibitions. The chosen images will then be printed by the charity and exhibited at no expense to the photographers. If your work is chosen for inclusion you will be contacted via email and asked to send us high resolution versions of your work.

The Great Outdoors

It has been shown time and time again that spending time outdoors is good for our health. Scientists have proven that nature not only encourages physical exercise and increases social interaction, but can even provide stress relief and help soothe mental illness.
As humans we are hard wired to enjoy being outside and it is a sad fact that today’s generations spend far less time outdoors than previous generations. Technology has taken over and we often find ourselves preoccupied with devices and gadgets rather than exploring what the great outdoors has to offer.
Photography is one pursuit that allows us to combine technology with being in our natural environment. Taking photographs of your time outside can be exciting, cathartic, relaxing or exhilarating.
From stunning landscape photographs that capture the beauty of the natural world, to dramatic wildlife photos that shows wild animals in their natural habitat, the great outdoors has so much to offer.
We’re looking for images of craggy hilltops, vast grasslands, moorland paths, sandy beaches, forests and woodland scenes and flowery meadows. Whatever the great outdoors means to you.
We want you to capture your countryside capers and outdoor adventures. Think mountaineering, hiking, rambling, climbing, caving and kite flying. Or maybe sailing, canoeing and paddle boarding is more your kind of thing.
For those who prefer a more relaxing experience, maybe you can capture the serenity of the great outdoors through your images of picnics, camping, foraging, fishing, cycling or bird watching.
The great outdoors is a theme that offers a vast source of inspiration and we are looking forward to seeing what it means to you and how the great outdoors makes you happy.

Competition closes for entries on October 31st 2018.
