Make it snappy! With a photo challenge

Calling all amateur/would-be photographers....

Do you like to go out and about exploring our local countryside, parks, walkways and landmarks, or just love to snap away with your camera? If so, this could be the challenge for you!

Visit Consett have partnered with the Derwent Valley Partnership, to host a photograph challenge competition to encourage residents when taking their daily exercise to capture images of the beautiful Derwent Valley.  Sorry, professional photographers/businesses are not eligible to enter the challenge.

The photograph challenge is open from 1 June 2021 and to take part, you just need to upload up to 6 images to the Visit Consett website ( where you can choose from the different categories to enter.

All approved photos will be included in the main Visit Consett gallery and we’ll also be sharing images on the Visit Consett Facebook page to encourage people to vote for their favourites.

We are working with some local photographers who will be looking through the photos we receive and offering some great prizes to our challenge ‘winners’ including camera equipment, photography training courses and other goodies.

The closing date for the challenge is 31 August 2021 with the winners announced during September.

Good luck!
