Bingley Walkers are Welcome and Bingley Camera Club have joined forces to hold a photo walk challenge competition that has been funded by Funded by West Yorkshire Local Authority CityConnect.
Submit a photo taken on the walk there is a chance to win the monthly prize of £30 photo printing vouchers, with a £50 grand prize to the overall winner. The competition runs between August 2021 and February 2022.
To enter the competition please go on one of our self-guided or guided walks between August 2021 and February 2022 and take a photograph or two on the way.
You can choose from a number of walks. Whether you go on our new photo clue walk or one of the other Bingley Walkers are Welcome walks, the project is to encourage people to walk and to take photos along the way.
We have created a new fun photo clue walk around Bingley. This easy, self-guided walk is perfect for families. There are photographic clues to follow, where walkers can find the clues and solve the answer to a riddle. The Family Photo Clue walk is here: Bingley Walkers Are Welcome Photo Walk
. If you don't want to follow the walk on your phone you can pick up a copy of the walk leaflet from The Stationary Cupboard, Bingley.
Or, go on another of Bingley Walkers are Welcome Self-guided walks. There are many to choose from ranging from easy to challenging here: Bingley Walkers Are Welcome Self Guided Walks
Or, if you prefer join one of Bingley Walkers are Welcome guided walks to walk with others. These are on every second Sunday of the month, and set off at 10 am outside the Bingley Arts Centre. More details here: Bingley Walkers Are Welcome Guided Walks.

Bingley is a beautiful and historically interesting area of the Bradford district, with some fantastic open spaces. The past 18 months have shown more than ever how important local green spaces are. Bingley Walkers are Welcome and Bingley Camera Club hope to encourage local people who may otherwise not go walking to get out exploring the local area, while also welcoming visitors from other areas of the district and beyond.
Liz Beckwith, president of Bingley Camera Club says:
“As a club we aim to grow local photographers, we would like everyone to get out and about, look at the local area with fresh eyes and be inspired, take up our challenge to take photographs and enter our competition. Photography is very enjoyable and something that everyone can do, you don’t need fancy equipment to take a stunning photograph.”
Christine McCabe, chair of Bingley Walkers are Welcome says:
“Bingley and the surrounding areas have a lot to offer and are welcoming to everybody. Walking is a great way to improve health, and we hope that people will enjoy our walks and we look forward to seeing everybody’s photographs”
