Cape CornwallPenwith Hedges Photography Competition 2021

One of the aims of the Penwith Landscape Partnership is to help record and celebrate the wonderful Cornish Hedges found in Penwith. As such for Hedge Week we are launching our Penwith Hedges Photography Competition. We want to see your images that capture the beauty and wonder of our Cornish hedges. The images could focus on their wildlife, heritage, biodiversity or structure – whatever you prefer! These images will help us create an artistic record of Penwith’s hedges for future generations.

IMG_2116Help us record a year of a Cornish Hedge

One of the aims of our Seeing the Landscape project is to create an artistic record a year of a Cornish Hedge. As such we are seeking volunteers who can revisit the same stretch of Cornish Hedge once a month for a year to record the changes that can take place. This can be in the form of photographs, or another artistic form if you prefer - we are happy for you to use your imagination! The artworks produced will be displayed on the Penwith Landscape Partnership website and included as part of our Seeing the Landscape exhibition in summer 2022. All artists will retain their own copyright and will of course always be credited when their artworks are used.

If you would like to help us created a record of the year of a Cornish Hedge for future generations and would like to volunteer please email Katie at for more information. We can't wait see what images you create!
