Take part in the Ruritage photo contest and share your Somerset shots.

Entries close on 31 October 2020

Do you want to show the world what makes Somerset special? Have you captured a photo which you feel sums up the place you live? Or the landscape, people or traditions around you? 

Take part in the RURITAGE photo contest!

This photo contest is organised by ICLEI Europe in the framework of the RURITAGE project. 

What is the Ruritage photo contest about? 

The RURITAGE photo contest is a unique opportunity for local communities to showcase the potential of the natural and cultural heritage of their rural areas. We want to discover what it is like to see those areas from the local point of view and to understand what is distinctive and special about them.

While the overarching topic of the photo contest is the natural and cultural heritage of rural areas, participants can submit pictures that reflect one or several of the following aspects:   

Nature, architecture, daily life, activities, traditions, challenges, Pilgrimage, Resilience, Landscape, Food, Migration or Art & Festivals.

What is your snap shot of Somerset? Be creative and have fun! 

How to enter

The Photo Contest is taking place from 1 June until 31 October 2020 and is open to individuals and organisations. To participate, you need to submit photos of the rural areas participating in the Photo Contest.
