Snow in the Preseli Mountains, Wales

Celebrating our Coastal Uplands – Photography Competition

Share your favourite photograph of life in the Cambrian Mountains and Preseli Mountains in Wales and the Wicklow Mountains and Blackstairs Mountains in Ireland with us. Help us showcase the rich, diverse cultural and natural heritage of these distinct uplands regions bordering the Irish Sea.

CUPHAT, supported by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland-Wales Cooperation programme, focuses on heritage-based tourism in the coastal uplands of Ireland and Wales. The project seeks to showcase the shared and distinctive heritages of the above project areas and we are asking for your help to capture the unique beauty of these areas through this photography competition.

Entries can be from any time of the year and should relate to one of our four project themes –

  • Geology and Landforms,
  • Biodiversity,
  • Archaeology,
  • Community Lives.

To enter simply choose the form below that works with your email address, complete the details below and submit your photograph following those instructions. You must be 18 years or over to enter and entries must be submitted by the person who took the photograph. Please upload your entry before 6pm on 17 March 2023.

Ten photographs will be shortlisted from each area and opened to an online public vote to decide the overall winners. There will be prizes of CUPHAT Water Bottles for the winning photograph from each area and the overall winner will receive a CUPHAT hoodie.

We would like to use the submitted photographs to help us highlight areas of interest across the four project areas, therefore please note that when submitting your photograph to the competition we will ask your permission to use the photograph, your name and caption, as part of the CUPHAT Project in a range of ways including:
