It’s been a while since our last Exmoor Photo Competition, and what better way to start the new decade than with lots of amazing photos taken by our talented photographers on beautiful Exmoor.
Everyone is eligible to enter up to three images per month. The competition will run until 30 June 2020 – each month, the public will choose the top ten images to go through to the semi-finals by ‘liking’ them in a special album on Facebook or here on the website. The public and a jury will pick the final 13 images in August 2020 – these photos will feature on our 2021 Exmoor4all Calendar.
You can enter the competition here (safest method to make sure we are not missing an entry) or by posting your photos on Twitter or Facebook, using the hashtag #Exmoor4allPhotoComp. The hashtag is important as it will help us to find your entries!
For Terms and Conditions, please see here.
The 2018 Photo Competition ran on our FB group back in May/June for four weeks. We had meant to turn the top 13 images into a calendar again, but simply ran out of hours in the day to get this organised. However, we now have a new project called “A Year on Exmoor”. More details will be revealed soon, just as the winners of the competition. The standard of entries have yet again been amazing and, in our eyes, every single one deserves to be a winner!
During July, many of you submitted many stunning photos of Exmoor through the seasons in our photo competition. 13 images were chosen for the 2018 Exmoor4all calendar which is now available for pre-order.
This year’s calendar is Double A4 in size (A3 when hanging, 250gsm silk finish) which helps the image to stand out. On the bottom half is lots of space for notes. We have opted against advertising this year. The calendar comes with a strong cardboard envelope. Hopefully the calendar should be with you by the beginning of October.

On the lower slopes of Dunkery, the sky was dense with the black and heavy clouds of a passing storm. It was close to sunset and the low disappearing sun produced an intense golden light in stark and dramatic contrast to the dark brooding skies, in an unfolding drama of light and dark. Enigmatic and wild Exmoor at its best!
And this is what the March page of the Exmoor4all 2017 Calendar looks like:
We only have a limited number of calendars this year. Make sure you don’t miss out – when they’re gone, they’re gone.
Over the next few days we will be posting the individual photos with a comment by the photographer – about the location and their thoughts about their photo.
