30th April 2022


The Garden Rooms at Tennants and charity Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust are delighted to announce the launch of their 2022 Yorkshire Dales Photography Competition – and are now inviting entries from talented amateur photographers.

The Yorkshire Dales is a place of spectacular natural beauty; dramatic landscapes, unique wildlife and vibrant communities. We’re now inviting you to pick up your camera and capture the Yorkshire Dales in photographs of the people, landscapes and wildlife that make this area so special.

Capture the Yorkshire Dales throughout the seasons. Be inspired by new life emerging in the Spring, the abundance of Summer, the rich colours of Autumn or the monochrome landscapes of Winter. We are looking for your own unique perspective of the Yorkshire Dales throughout the year.

Thirty-five finalists will be selected from the entries, whose work will be included in our gallery exhibition, which will run from 19th July – 14th August 2022. Visitors to the exhibition will be invited to vote for their favourite. The overall winning entry, as voted for by the public, will receive a prize of a £100 photographic voucher and a Yorkshire Hamper. Twelve images from the final 35 will be selected by the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust for their 2023 Calendar.


Entries to be submitted by 5pm on 30th April 2022.

The 35 finalists who have been selected to exhibit will be notified on 6th May 2022.

The finalists’ framed photographs must be delivered to The Garden Rooms at Tennants Reception by 5pm on 8th July 2022.

Public voting during the exhibition closes on 11th August, and the winner will be announced on 12th August. The finalists will be included in an online gallery and voting via The Garden Rooms website will be open from 30th July – 11th August.
