Tree-mendous Ashridge Photography Competition

A photographer takes a picture in the woods

Calling all photographers! The hunt is on for the next photo to be displayed in the visitor centre. As part of our 'Tree-mendous Ashridge' event we will be running a photography competition which focuses on your favourite trees across the estate.

Get snapping

During August we will be accepting submissions for the competition. Twenty submissions will be shortlisted, printed onto canvas and featured in our main showcase, taking place in the visitor centre Sept 30-Oct 1. Over this weekend visitors to the estate will be able to vote for their favourite shot. 

The winning photo will be hung in the visitor centre following the competition and the photographer will receive a prize. Many visitors often inquire about the photo canvases featured in the visitor centre, so this is an excellent opportunity for a photographer looking to advertise their work.
