The Angus Pictish Trail Photo Competition

To celebrate the new Angus Pictish Trail leaflet, Pictavia is proud to announce the launch of the Angus Pictish Trail Photo Competition.

We're looking for photos which capture the county's ancient past - photos can be of any museum exhibit, stone or site which relates to the Picts; as long as the subject is recognisable. All entries will be judged by an independent panel, in three age categories: 8 - 12 years, 13 - 17 years, and 18 years and over. The winning entries will be displayed in Pictavia during August and September, and winners will also receive a book token and a framed print of their photo.

Entries can be submitted to Pictavia either in hard copy or digitally. Photo files can be emailed to pictavia@angus.gov.uk. All entries must be received by Friday 6th August, and the winners will be announced on Saturday 14th August.

Good luck!

Terms and conditions: Only one entry will be accepted per person. All entrants must supply their name, address, contact telephone number and the age category they fit into - this information will not be shared with any third parties. The decision of the judges will be final. Pictavia reserves the right to use any submitted photos for future promotional purposes.
