To celebrate the Foundation's 25th anniversary next year, we are creating a unique calendar using the best entries into our photo competition! We would very much like you to help us commemorate a significant year using photos taken in and around our catchment with the theme of 'Our rivers'. 

We’re looking for beautiful photographs that show off both the Wye and the Usk in all their natural glory, throughout the seasons. They can be photographs of the landscape, the wildlife, agriculture or recreation. They can be of any part of our catchment, not just the River Wye or River Usk. It’s really up to you to capture 'Our Rivers’.

The thirteen photos selected by the judges will appear in our anniversary calendar for 2020, with all proceeds going towards the Wye and Usk Foundation directly. Our panel of judges comprises Simon Upton (keen Welsh borders fly fisherman, international photographer for major publishing houses, books and magazines including The World of Interiors, Vogue US), Gayle Marsh (Photographer for Wales Online and former Welsh Ladies and Senior Loch-Style Team angler), Dewi Roberts (Photographer, who's footage was recently seen in the BBC series 'Wales, Land of the Wild') and Elizabeth Passey (Trustee of the Wye and Usk Foundation). 

The closing date for entries is 23:59 on Saturday 31st August 2019.

All proceeds from the sales of the calendar are going towards our Freshwater Friends appeal, to help educate our local schoolchildren about the issues and problems facing our rivers. To see more about our Freshwater Friends appeal (or to donate), please click here.

The person who takes the winning photo will receive £250 in cash, along with a copy of the calendar. The other 12 winning entries will win a free copy of the calendar. The winning entries will be decided by 30th Sept, and the final calendar will be revealed at our Annual Meeting in the Autumn.
