Take a Dorset View Photo Competition Now Open!

We are excited to announce that the ‘Take a Dorset View’ Photo Competition is now open to entries, with over £500 worth of prizes on offer. Send us your best shots of Dorset’s outstanding landscape by 31st August 2023.

Could your photograph be part of the Dorset Magazine 2024 Calendar, be showcased in this magazine and feature in a touring photographic exhibition?

We all have our own take on what is special about Dorset. Often, top of that list is a stunning landscape that people hold dear to them.

The Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (Dorset AONB) Partnership, together with Dorset magazine, invite you to share your view of what makes Dorset special by entering the Take a Dorset View photo competition.
