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.

Photographers on the shortlist could win one of the following prizes:


o   First Prize An overnight stay at The Morritt Country House Hotel including breakfast, dinner and spa use for two people.

o   Second Prize A luxurious day at The Garage Spa for two people including a 55-minute treatment.

o   Third Prize Dinner for two at the 2 AA Rosette-awarded Gilroy’s Dining Room.


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 at 2:30pm.

Following the prize giving, local youth folk group, Cream Tees, will play a selection of lively songs from 3pm to 4pm. That’s the perfect time for Afternoon Tea, so book early and make a day of it! You could even come for Sunday Lunch before the award ceremony.
