Hundreds of pounds are up for grabs in a Love Your Lakes photographic competition organised by South West Lakes Trust and South West Water.

The contest aims to encourage people to make the most of the fantastic photo opportunities at the trust’s lakes across Devon, Cornwall and West Somerset.

The lakes of the South West are popular among amateur and professional photographers alike and the photo opportunities are endless.

The competition has four categories – the beauty of water, people, activities and flora and fauna.

Photos must be taken at one of South West Lakes Trust lakes. There is a £250 prize for the overall winner and £100 for each individual category winner. Runners up prizes will also be awarded. The winning photographs will be published in Devon Life, Cornwall Life and Somerset Life magazines.

The Love your Lakes competition is free to enter and will be judged by Evelyn Stacey, Chief Executive of South West Lakes Trust, Monica Read, Customer Relations and Business Development Director of South West Water and also a Trustee of South West Lakes Trust and renowned professional news and sport photographer Richard Austin.

Richard has been working at the top end of the newspaper and magazine industry for more than a quarter of a century. His photographs are used all over the world in newspapers and magazines.

Evelyn Stacey said: “Entering this competition with images of our stunning lakes is a great way to share your experiences with people who might not have the chance otherwise to get out and enjoy the countryside. It also helps us to build up a picture of changing seasons and how different weather conditions can show our favourite landmarks in an entirely new light.”

The competition’s closing date is 30 September 2013. Photographs, which must be a minimum of 1mb, should be emailed to marketing@swlakestrust.org.uk.
