Photography  Competition

Whether you’re a budding photographer with an interest in nature or a garden enthusiast with a camera to hand, we love to see the photographs you’ve taken on your travels around the garden this year.

It’s easy to enter!

We’d love to see the garden through your eyes, the big or little things that interest you or captures your attention.The winner will receive a selection of goodies from the Forde Abbey gift shop and both the winner and the runners-up will have their photograph on display throughout the year.

To enter, simply send a selection of photographs (no more than 3 please) to: along with your name, telephone number and contact details. The call for entries will close at the end of December so there’s plenty of time to get that perfect shot!


The Rules

The closing date for entries is the end of December 2022, and any photographs received after 31st December will be automatically entered in the following year’s competition.  Judging will take place in the New Year.

It is a condition of entry that all terms and conditions are adhered to. Submission of an entry will be taken to mean acceptance of these terms of conditions.

Entrants must ensure that the photographs (high resolution please) they are submitting are their own. 

No age limit applies but entrants 12 and under must seek parental permission to enter.

By entering, you agree for your image to be used by Forde Abbey to promote the competition on their website and on any associated social media and for marketing purposes.
