The Spirit of Teesdale Photography Contest

Capturing the Spirit of Teesdale in photographs


Following the success of our Spirit of Teesdale art commission, we held a great contest especially for photographers located within 20 miles of The Morritt Country House Hotel.

The closing date to enter this contest was September 19th and the photographs in with a chance of winning a prize, along with inclusion in a 2015 charity calendar for St.Teresa’s Hospice, have now been added to a shortlist.

The shortlisted photographs will be displayed at an exhibition and beer festival on Sunday, November 9th at The Morritt, where the first, second and third prize-winners will be announced. Here’s what you can look forward to during the exhibition.

11am – 6pm Photography Exhibition. View all the shortlisted pictures in the Ballroom.

11am – 6pm Silent Auction. Bid to own the prints displayed in the exhibition. Proceeds will be donated to St Teresa’s Hospice.

3pm – 4pm Music from Cream Tees. The local youth folk group will play in the Ballroom, where you can also book Afternoon Tea to enjoy while you listen.


To make a day of it you can book for Sunday Lunch, available from 12pm to 2pm, or Afternoon Tea, from 3pm to 5pm. It’s also the third day of our Traditional Ale Week so there is plenty to enjoy in The Dickens Bar.
