Spirit of Teasdale Photography Contest

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.

We received almost 60 entries and with the help of professional photographer Richard Jemison, narrowed them down to a shortlist of 13 that were displayed at an exhibition on Sunday, November 9th.

All entries were of a fantastic standard and demonstrated a very high quality of photography – as well as showing off stunning Teesdale.

The winners were:

1st: High Force by Gary Richardson

2nd: Fetching Them Down by Richard Laidler

3rd: Globe At The Bowes Museum by Chris Morse
