BBC Countryfile Photographic Competition 2019

The theme for the BBC Countryfile Photographic Competition 2019 is “Beauty and the Beasts”. It’s up to you how you interpret it but we’re looking for stunning photographs of the landscape, our wildlife (including beasts big and small !) agriculture or recreation.

The twelve photos selected by the judges will appear in the Countryfile Calendar for 2020 sold in aid of the BBC Children In Need appeal. The overall winner will be voted for by Countryfile viewers. The judges will also choose their favourite entry. You can enter up to three photos in total. The closing date for entries is 23.59 on Friday 12th July 2019. The person who takes the winning photo will receive a gift card to the value of £1,000, which can be spent on photographic equipment of their choice, at a number of outlets. The person who takes the photo the judges like best will receive a gift card to the value of £500 which can also be spent on photographic equipment at a number of outlets. Last year’s calendar raised more than £2.4 million for BBC Children In Need. Please read the rules before entering.
