Alfred Vowles Photographic Competition
Alfred Vowles was born in 1882 and was a well-known local photographer who, until the late 1940s, devoted his life to recording the landscape, life and people of Exmoor.
For many years he ran a thriving business selling postcards of his work from a shop in Minehead, having earlier worked for Kodak in London. Alfred Vowles’ legacy is a valuable historic documentary of Exmoor and the competition’s aim is its continuation.
So – are you ready to impress Andrew? We are looking for stunning photographs, regardless of subject, that capture the essence of Exmoor throughout the year in an original way. Unpublished photographs taken in previous years can be submitted, but they must have been taken in Exmoor National Park; please indicate when and where they were taken. The closing date for submissions is midnight on 30th September 2024.
This year’s competition has three categories:
There will be one overall winner, as well as winners within each category. Entries for under 18s are very welcome and will be judged separately.
Images need to be submitted as jpegs of between 1-5 MB. Please be sure to read the terms and conditions when applying.
£100 prize for the winner!
*A selection of the best photographs may be published by The Exmoor Society as 2024 Christmas cards and in a photobook.
