National Parks 70 anniversary photo competition

In 2019, we created a poster to commemorate 70 years since the 1949 Act of Parliament that began the family of National Parks in Great Britain. This year, we are holding a competition to celebrate the 70 anniversary of two of their oldest landscapes – the Lake District and Dartmoor National Park.

In August 2020, we looked at the top OS Maps walking spots since the easing of the first Covid-19 lockdown. We were not surprised to see that the top 10 routes were all based in National Parks, with the Lake District claiming an impressive 6 of them.

Great Britain’s National Parks have always been popular places to visit, but the challenges of 2020 have truly reinforced their value and highlighted the importance of greenspace. What better way to celebrate them than featuring your brilliant photos on the covers!
