Enter our autumn colours photo contest

We love the vibrant colours of autumn, so this month, we want to see your best photos of autumn colours in Britain. 
2nd November 2016
Autumn woodland

The top 10 most popular images will be used in an online gallery, on our social media channels and even in our weekly newsletter. 

The overall winning image will be chosen by the BBC Countryfile Magazine team and will feature as the main image of the online photo contest gallery after the contest has closed.

How to upload your photo

1. Find your favourite autumn colours photograph and check that your image is no larger than 1,200 x 800 jpg. You may need to resize your photo as we regret that larger images will not be accepted. 

2. Click choose file and upload your photo

3. Tick the 'I am not a robot' box

4. Click 'Upload your photo' - you should then see this message 'Image uploaded successfully! Please fill out the rest of the form to complete your entry.'

5. Add a caption for your photo and your name and email address. Please confirm you have read our terms and conditions and click 'Enter competition'

Good luck! 

Please do only submit images of autumn colours that are appropriate to this month's theme. Please note that very large image files will not be accepted, so where possible please resize and upload a smaller jpg file. The best size is 1,200 by 800 jpg.

The BBC Countryfile Magazine team's choice is final and correspondence will not be entered into.


  • The final date for submissions is 23.59pm BST on 18 November 2016.

Don't forget to encourage your friends and family to vote! All votes submitted by the final deadline will be counted.

Please note: we manually approve all photographs and while we do our best to do so quickly there may be a slight delay if you upload an image outside of office hours. Thanks for your patience.
