County Photographic Competition - Still OPEN in SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER for monthly entries!


The Creative Activities Team is still running a photographic competition for all members of Scouting and Guiding within North Yorkshire.

PC 2020As we are currently living in extraordinary times the theme of this year’s competition is MAKING THE ORDINARY EXTRAORDINARY! This can be interpreted in many ways; ordinary objects or scenes or events photographed in an extraordinary way, used for extraordinary purposes, from unusual angles or just plain odd!

Entries will be judged in the various sections from Rainbows and Beavers through to Leaders and Active Support/Trefoil Guild.

As a change from previous years we will be happy to receive entries each month, we will publish the best from each month on the relevant County Website and then hold them over for eventual winners in October. Each person may enter one photograph per month, which must have been taken by the entrant, to the competition. Submissions must be in digital jpg format, entries taken on camera phones will be accepted.

All photographs must be submitted with the name of the photographer, section (Beaver, Brownie etc), Scout or Guide Group, District plus Guide County details, an email or postal contact and confirmation that the photograph is all the entrant’s own work.

The entries will be judged in the appropriate section, all judging will be anonymous and the decisions of the judges will be final.

The competition is now open for submissions until 31 October 2020. Any entries after this date will not be judged. Photographs must be submitted to the following email address only: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Any photographs submitted to the competition may be used by the Scout or Guide Counties for any Scouting or Guiding purposes. All other rights are retained by the photographer.


Let's ALL have ONE last try!
