Our Slow Moments competition is back! There’s a gourmet Yorkshire food hamper to be won each month, and a walking holiday in Slovenia’s Enchanted Valley for this year’s overall winner.
So, what are we looking for? We’d like you to send us an image that encapsulates your favourite Slow Moment. This might be an aspect of nature, a perfectly framed view, an unexpected sight, or a small detail which tells – or alludes to – some kind of story. A Slow Moment isn’t ‘slow’ in the traditional sense of the word; it’s something you experience when you take yourself away from everyday life and really engage with your surroundings.
In 2019, the winning image (pictured above) offered a fascinating, fly-on-the-wall glimpse of life in remote northern India; we realise many of you are staying closer to home this year, but we would still welcome entries inspired by your local landscapes, or from past travels. What better excuse to look through old holiday photos, and reminisce about special experiences from years gone by?
Upload your favourite Slow Moment – captured in an evocative image and described in no more than 40 words – via our simple form. Before you do, be sure to read the terms and conditions.
Each monthly winner is notified by the 15th day of the following month; don't forget to keep checking this page to keep up-to-date with the latest entries and winners.
Moment of the month
Each month, from June until October 2020, we will select a Moment of the Month, the prize for which is a gourmet food hamper from award-winning Yorkshire delicatessen, Hunters of Helmsley. All monthly winners will be entered into the ‘Grand Final’.
With its dramatic Alpine backdrop and pretty, velvet-green meadows, Slovenia’s Logar Valley is a photographer’s dream. Based for seven nights at the Hotel Plesnik, a secluded spa hotel, you enjoy easy access to the area’s many scenic walking routes.
The overall winner of our 2019 competition was Inntraveller Owain Thomas, who impressed with a photo taken at the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary in northern India. Find out the story behind his entry, and how it captured the imagination of our judges...
