Tyne Rivers Trust Photo Competition

The Tyne Rivers Trust are a charity which looks after the River Tyne and carries out conservation work to improve it. They are launching a charity calendar in 2017 to celebrate what is the best salmon river in the county and are really keen for our members, or anyone who enjoys the river Tyne, to submit their best photos of the Tyne catchment to help them fill it.   The theme is Tyne River Life so images can cover anything from people enjoying the river to wildlife to scenic shots, as long as it’s taken within the Tyne river catchment which stretches from Redesdale to Tynemouth to Haltwhistle. Click here for a catchment map.   A judging panel will pick the best 13 photos Read More …
