Wales Calling All Photographers!

Would you like to see your work published? If so, then why not get involved with the Darganfod Dyfi initiative and submit your photographs of the beautiful Dyfi Valley.

Darganfod Dyfi is funded through the Communities and Nature (CAN) project. It is being led by the Countryside Council for Wales and its partners; Ceredigion County Council, Gwynedd Council and Powys County Council, Snowdonia National Park Authority and the Forestry Commission Wales.

In May last year, local people attended Darganfod Dyfi community events, to share information about access to the countryside in their area. Since then CCW has been working hard with its partners to draw up a shortlist of routes to be improved.

Having selected the routes for the initiative, we wanted to look at ways of promoting the paths. So, last month we invited people to attend events in Pennal, Talybont, Corris and Derwenlas.

We asked people to bring along any interesting information about their villages including stories, diaries, newspaper cuttings and any information we could use to interpret the routes.

We had a good turnout in each of the four locations and it was inspiring to see people so enthusiastic about their communities and eager to share their knowledge and information about the area. There was much to investigate and the team thoroughly enjoyed the wealth of local stories and old photographs of the Dyfi Valley.

The next stage of our efforts will be to collate and plan the interpretation for the routes, using the information provided from the events to devise themes for the walks. These themes may form the basis of leaflets, panels, artwork or audio trails.

For the interpretation, we thought it would be a good idea to use your photographs for the promotion of the Darganfod Dyfi routes. It’s a great opportunity to see your very own work professionally published.

If you would like to participate then please check out our terms and conditions on this post. You can then e-mail your photographs [up to five!] for consideration to

If selected your photograph will be published on CCW’s Flickr account and in Darganfod Dyfi literature and you will also receive a framed original of your work.
