2019 National Trust Photography Competition

The National Trust has launched a search to find two photographs to adorn the cover of its 2019 Handbook and membership card, which will be seen by over 5 million members.

Both amateur and professional photographers are being encouraged to enter the competition, which has as its theme 'Our space to explore'.

The National Trust's Head of Photography Chris Lacey said: 'We're looking for images that reflect what being in nature means to you - whether that's on the coast, in the countryside or at our gardens.

The winning photos will inspire our 5 million members to get outdoors, seek adventure and build memories each time they pick up their Handbook or scan their membership card.

Our places are bursting into life at this time of year - perfect for capturing the wonder and beauty of nature. Every time you visit with your camera, you'll be helping us protect irreplaceable outdoor spaces for future generations to enjoy.'

The annual competition, sponsored by Panasonic, runs from 1 May 2018 until midnight on 2 September 2018. The winners will be selected by a judging panel and announced in November.

The National Trust welcomes amateur photography at its properties. There are many photographic competitions held within the UK that you are entitled to enter using photographs you have taken on National Trust land. In general we encourage photographers to enter their work but entering competitions that insist you, as an entrant, sign over your rights are not allowed. Therefore, if you are in any doubt about the validity of entering images please contact and we'll assess the terms of entry to check they comply with our policies.
