Your National Park: a snapshot

Yourkshire Dales National Park: a snapshot

Photo competition - closed 9 November 2012

What do you love about the National Park and would like to see looked after? What things would you change if you could to keep or improve the area as a special place to live, work and visit? These are the thoughts behind the Yorkshire Dales National Park photo competition - Your Yorkshire Dales National Park: a snapshot.

Over the last 12 months we have been busy looking to the future of the National Park and creating new National Park Management Plan that sets out the work we, and a lot of different organisations, will do over the coming years to help look after this protected area.

A big 'thank you' to all those who submitted an image. More than 230 entries flooded into the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority after the launch of the competition earlier this year.

The judging panel included Craven Herald newspaper photographer Stephen Garnett, the National Park Authority's Senior Policy and Performance Officer Joanna Swiers, Hebden's Olympic gold medal rower Andrew Triggs-Hodge and Drystone Radio's DJ Daisy Watkiss.

After hours of agonising, the judges finally picked winners from the adult and under-18s sections. The overall winner in the adult section was Mr Tom Collier from Hetton-le-Hole, Tyne & Wear, with his entry entitled 'liquid sunshine' while the under-18s top spot was given to 6-year-old Charlotte Madley of Askrigg in Wensleydale with her photograph of cows going to the field after being milked.

The category winners and takers of the remaining top 20 photos will be informed later this week and will their names will be published here along with their images.

An exhibition of the top twenty images will start on Sunday, 3 February 2013 at Dales Countryside Museum, Hawes.
