The winning entries will feature in the 2019 Wild East Devon Countryside calendar, which will be available to purchase at East Devon District Council’s offices and at Seaton Wetlands.

Cllr Tom Wright, East Devon’s Environment portfolio holder, said: 

Last year we had over 100 photographs entered into the competition and the standard was fantastic. The winners included images of Ladram Bay, a beaver on the River Otter and a festive Robin taken at East Devon’s Seaton Wetlands. I’m looking forward to seeing this year’s entries and choosing 12 photos, which sum up East Devon’s outstanding countryside. 

All entries must include your name, where you live, your age if under 18 and a photo caption including where the photo was taken. Images must be high resolution and landscape orientation. Images which include people must have appropriate consent to use the image.
