Beaulieu River > River News > Awards > Final entries for photographic competition to capture natural beauty of the Beaulieu River

Amateur photographers who are inspired by the ever-changing beauty of the Beaulieu River are invited to send final entries for the 2023 competition.

Entrants can capture what makes the river special to them, whether it’s an atmospheric  sunset, playful seals or wading birds and wildfowl. The jewel of the south stands at the gateway to the New Forest National Park and provides habitats for more than 200 birdlife species.

From Buckler’s Hard visitors taking pictures on the waterside to Buckler’s Hard Yacht Harbour mooring holders on the river, budding photographers are invited to send their final entries by October 31 for a chance to win the £200 prize.

Lord Montagu will choose the winner from the selection of photographs submitted by locals and visitors throughout the year. The winning picture will also be featured in the 2024 Beaulieu River Tide Times & Information booklet.

The annual competition is open to all amateur photographers who are inspired to capture the unique quality of one of the few privately owned tidal rivers in Britain and has been under the custodianship of the Montagu family for over four centuries.
