Photography competition celebrates the Yorkshire Dales in all its glory

27 February 2024


Entries are now open for the popular Yorkshire Dales photography competition – which celebrates the beauty and character of the Dales landscape.

The competition, run by charity Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT) and The Garden Rooms at Tennants in Leyburn, hopes to inspire amateur photographers of all abilities to get out into the Dales and capture its unique landscapes and wildlife.


Photographers have until 28th April 2024 to enter, with 35 finalists to be included in a gallery exhibition at The Garden Rooms in June. Twelve of the shortlisted images will also be featured in a Yorkshire Dales 2025 charity calendar.

This year’s competition is also open to under 18’s, whose work will be included in the gallery exhibition.

Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust’s Lindsay Wallace said, “The Yorkshire Dales is an inspiration to so many people and every year we’re blown away by the standard of photography that people are producing for the competition. We’re excited this year to see entries from younger photographers and discover their unique perspectives of the Dales.”

Alison Tennant, Director, The Garden Rooms at Tennants added, “We are delighted to be once again working with the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust to celebrate the incredible landscape and life in the Dales through photography. Adding a new dimension this year will be the new children’s competition, and we hope the younger entrants will love getting out into the countryside and getting creative”

The competition will run until 28th April 2024. To enter please visit  or email
