You don’t have to be an expert photographer with hundreds of pounds worth of kit. Anyone can take part in the competition by capturing interesting images on cameras, ipads or smartphones, while walking one of the Dudley trails on Sunday 6 May. 

The competition offers four chances to win a family ticket to Himley bonfire (3 November).


In the week following 6 May, the Mayor of Dudley, Cllr Dave Tyler, will choose four winners from the entries received.


There are two categories: Adult and Under 14s and two winning images will be selected from each.


Dudley Trail is on Sunday 6 May and offers walks of six, nine, 12, 20 and 28 miles, taking in hidden beauty spots and areas of our industrial heritage across the borough.


All walks start from Dudley Leisure Centre at designated times between 8am and noon where each participant will have an ID number given to them. This number will be required to be sent alongside the photo entry.
