Grand Welsh Photography Challenge Progress
Why Grand Welsh Photography?
Wales is full of natural beauty and surprising history. Did you know that there are more castles per square mile in Wales than any other European country? There are over 600 castles in Wales.
We are so lucky to have three National Parks and five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Wales. The parks are the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Snowdonia National Park and Brecon Beacons National Park. Together, they cover one-fifth of the country’s landmass.
The highest mountain in Wales is Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), which you can see at Snowdonia, one of Wales’ National Parks. It is 1,085 metres high, or 6,560 feet high.
So it goes to show there are plenty of things to photograph!
What is the Grand Welsh Photography Challenge?
We are looking for 1,000 photos in and around Wales to be submitted and shared!
See yourself as the next David Bailey? If so, we would love to see your picture! We’re looking for pictures of our beautiful nation, whether it’s our sweeping valleys, rugged coastline or bustling cities, with extra points given to anyone who can find and snap a Dragon!
