Cumbrian landscape charity Friends of the Lake District is once again searching for the finest views the Lake District and Cumbria has to offer and in promotion of its ‘Dark Skies Cumbria’ project, a new category has been added for night time or ‘astrophotography’.

The charities annual photography competition is open to all ages and abilities. All images will be fully credited and winners featured on the charity’s Christmas cards and in its 2020 calendar. All winners will receive complimentary copies of the Christmas cards and 2020 calendar.

Rachel Dorrington, Fundraising Officer said: “As well as beautiful starry skies we’re looking for scenes of the Lake District and Cumbria from all seasons so dig back through your photos to find wonderful winters, stunning springs, sun-drenched summers and awesome autumns!”
