Inspired By Nature, National Parks Photography Competition 2020

The UK National Parks and Campaign for National Parks are delighted to announce the winner, runner up and shortlisted entrants for our joint photography competition underscoring the importance of nature in our national parks.

The competition, around the theme of ‘inspired by nature’, drew about 1,700 entries via social media. Outstanding wildlife shots, landscapes and portraits from across the 15 national parks in the UK blew away the judges.

The dramatic winning shot from Peter Stevens depicts a rare osprey swooping in on its prey in the Cairngorms national park.


Winner. Breakfast to take away, Cairngorms national park, by Peter Stevens: “This image was taken at Gordon MacLeod’s osprey hide in Aviemore, about 6am in July 2019. The local ospreys take fish from the loch to feed their young, before the long journey back to Africa at the end of the summer”.

Runner up. Kinder Downfall, Peak District national park, by Sam Walker: “Taken during Storm Dennis, when the strong 75mph winds were causing the waterfall to flow in reverse! Having grown up in the Peak District, it’s inspiring to me that there are still new things to see and discover like this in a national park I’m so familiar with”.

Shortlisted. Dragonfly, North York Moors national park, by Jonathan Green: “In June I was at May Beck with some colleagues when someone spotted this Hawker perched in a gorse bush. I love the detail on the wings, and it’s rare to be able to get so much of such a small subject in clear focus. Getting a few scratches was worth it”.

Shortlisted. Red squirrel, Yorkshire Dales national park, by Deborah Clarke: “I spotted this lively red squirrel scampering along the top of a drystone wall in Snaizeholme.
