Where the Leaves Fall – ANCESTRY

Where the Leaves Fall is a magazine exploring humankind’s connection with nature. Each issue explores three themes with a photography competition around one of these themes.

The theme for the next issue is ANCESTRY

The brief is open for photographers to submit up to ten high resolution photographs on this theme – either a single photo or a sequence of photographs. Although we invite an open interpretation of ‘ancestry,’ it is important the photographs demonstrate an interaction between humankind and nature, and a respectful approach to the natural and social environment. We also require that you write a short paragraph on how your photo, or sequence of photographs, fits the theme.

From the entries, five photographs will be shortlisted with the winning entrant receiving a £250 GBP prize. The winning photograph will also be printed in Where the Leaves Fall. If we like a set of images we will be in touch to discuss possibilities.

There will be a photography competition for each issue of the magazine. Sign up to our newsletter and follow us on social media @wtlfmag and @omvedgardens for details.




The winning entrant will receive a £250 GBP prize with the photo printed in Where the Leaves Fall.


Open to all.
