Join the UK's National Parks family in celebrating Britain's Landscapes of Plenty and you could earn a new pair of boots from outdoor specialist Merrell.
The annual UK National Parks photography competition runs until 31 May 2015. Photographers of all ages and skill level are encouraged to get snapping in any one of the UK's 15 National Parks, capturing some of the diverse landscapes and communities that make Britain's breathing spaces so special.
The theme for this year's competition is "Landscapes of Plenty", a celebration of the productive landscapes of the UK's National Parks. More than just places to play and be inspired, the National Parks are also home to some of the best produce, products, food and drink in the UK.
Images should be taken within the boundaries of a UK National Park. They should be of good quality and at least 1 MB in size. For full terms and conditions, and to upload your photo, visit the National Parks website.
Shortlisted photos will be announced on Friday, 12 June 2015, and displayed in an online gallery on the National Parks website. The overall winner will be notified some time before Friday, 3 July 2015. The winner will receive his or her choice of footwear from Merrell.
The photography competition is one of many events and activities connected with National Parks Week, which takes place this year from 27 July to 2 August.
There are 15 National Parks: 10 in England, three in Wales and two in Scotland. They are: Brecon Beacons, the Broads, Cairngorms, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Lake District, Loch Lomond & the Trossachs, New Forest, Northumberland, North York Moors, Peak District, Pembrokeshire Coast, Snowdonia, South Downs and Yorkshire Dales.
