Fife Coastal Path Photo Competition
Thursday, November 24, 2011
Budding photographers have a snapping chance to get their work featured on the front cover of a book about the Fife Coastal Path.
Fife Coast and Countryside Trust – the region’s leading environmental charity responsible for managing and conserving Fife’s countryside – is inviting amateur photographers to submit photos capturing the Path and its diverse beauty and natural wonders as part of the competition.
The Fife Coastal Path guidebook will be distributed through various outlets offering widespread exposure to the winner.
The Fife Coastal Path is 99 miles long, stretching from Kincardine in the South West of Fife, to The Tay Bridge– with plans to extend the Path up to the Kingdom's boundary at Newburgh soon to be launched.
The Path is rated as one of the top twenty walks in Scotland by Scottish National Heritage and VisitScotland as part of their Scotland’s Great Trails and is a much-loved local landmark exhibiting some of Fife’s extraordinary biodiversity that incorporates a stunning array of plant life and animals, including seals, dolphins, squirrels, insects and hundreds of bird species.
Walkers can explore unique geological, archaeological, military, religious, industrial and architectural sites along the Path that make up Fife’s heritage.
Fife Coastal Path features in ‘Appetite for Adventure – A Gastronomic Guide to Scotland’s Great Outdoors’ by Lucy Gillmore in association with VisitScotland and came runner up last year in the UK for best Coastal Path by readers of Coast Magazine.
Photos need to be submitted by December 2011 and be at least 300dpi.
