OS Map Cover photography competition

Have you taken a decent photo of a number of Welsh peaks or more generally in Wales, or of the Three Peaks?

The Ordnance Survey are running a competition at the moment.

In 2015, Ordnance Survey (‘OS’) changed the design of its iconic paper maps and we decided to run a competition to find beautiful, inspiring photos for every one of our OS map covers. We were delighted by the response and the amazing photographs that were submitted which offered a new perspective on the British landscape.

Our paper maps (with their covers) are updated on a rolling cycle and we would like to offer a new opportunity for the public to have their photographs featured on an OS Map.

The 6 maps that are due to be updated shortly are as follows:

OS Explorer Map series:
OL17 – Snowdon/Yr Wyddfa
OL18 – Harlech, Porthmadog & Bala/Y Bala
OL23 – Cadair Idris and Llyn Tegid

OS Tour Map series:
OS Tour Map 10 (North and Mid Wales/Gogledd a Chanolbarth Cymru)
OS Tour Map 11 (South and Mid Wales/De a Chanolbarth Cymru)

The Three Peaks Challenge Map

So if you are a keen amateur / professional photographer, and/or you have an inspiring photo of the area depicted within one of the above maps, please enter our OS Photofit 2018 competition and your photo could be one of the Judge’s favourites which will appear on the applicable map cover.

While you're on that photo page, you can also see a link to all the OS Champions down the right hand side, and click my link if you fancy to see a few blog posts I've provided to the OS blog.
