Share your images and paintings of the Pentland Hills

The Regional Park is happy to announce that the 8th biennial Pentland Inspirations Art and Photographic Competition has officially launched! Once again, we would like to invite you to enter your photographs and paintings of the Pentland Hills. Winning images will subsequently form a travelling exhibition visiting venues across Edinburgh and the Lothians, from December 2018 – May 2019.

The brief: Your Pentlands, your Inspiration! Entries need to be an image within (or of) the Pentland Hills, either in the Pentland Hills Regional Park, or the southern Pentlands.

Art: participants can enter up to two paintings, which can be framed or unframed. They must be mounted onto stiff card.

Photography: up to three photographs may be entered into one or more of the categories: Activity, Biodiversity (plants and wildlife), and Landscape. Full details on specifications are highlighted in the entry form, available HERE.

The competition will close on Friday 28th September 2018, with the winners' ceremony taking place in November and exhibition starting in December.

We look forward to seeing how the Pentland Hills has inspired you!
